Students entering a four-year college, university or other institution of higher education who wish to submit an exemption affidavit for meningococcal vaccination must request the official Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) affidavit form. This may be done online or by mail/fax. Once requested, the affidavit form is mailed from the DSHS to the student. The affidavit must be completed, notarized and provided to UT Arlington.
Details for requesting and completing the affidavit are available at the DSHS website. The affidavit must be notarized.
You must mail your completed and notarized affidavit to the Office of Admissions, Records and Registration or it may be submitted in person.
UT Arlington will honor this exemption for two years from the date the form was notarized.
