What is it?
Bacterial Meningitis (Senate Bill 1107) Effective January 1, 2012 During the 82nd Texas Legislative session, Senate Bill 1107 was passed. This bill requires all new students, transfer students, and returning students who have had a fall or spring semester break in their attendance at an institution of higher education to provide proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination (or a booster dose). The bacterial meningitis vaccination must have been given during the preceding five year time period and at least 10 days prior to the first day of the semester. A student will be able to register for classes but if the evidence of vaccination is not turned in by the last day of registration, the student will be dropped from their courses.
How do I remove it?
Submit proof of vaccination dated no sooner than 10 days and no later than 5 years before classes begin or complete and submit a waiver to the Office of Admissions & Records.

Will this prevent registration for credit classes?
Yes, if you try to register for classes online. No, if you come in and register with an Advisor. However, you will be dropped from classes if this is not submitted by the last day of registration.
