2013 - 2014 Combined Catalogs of the Colleges

Immunization Requirements


The college does not require proof of routine immunizations for admission and enrollment. Nonetheless, it is prudent and recommended that all prospective students should have adequate immunization for typical childhood diseases such as Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap), Measles (also known as Rubeola), Mumps, Rubella (MMR), and Poliomyelitis. (Info on the recommended schedule for adult immunizations may be found online at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/downloads/adult/adult-schedule.pdf). Moreover, as of January 1st, 2012, a new Texas State Law, Senate Bill No. 1107, makes it mandatory that anyone under the age of 30, who is seeking new enrollment at, and those seeking readmission to a Texas public or private institution after an absence of one semester or more, must give proof of being vaccinated against Bacterial Meningitis within the prior five (5) years preceding enrollment. And, as well, some health career-related programs require specific immunizations prior to admission; that information is outlined in student orientations for those programs.
