Bacterial Meningitis

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, incoming Texas college students and students returning after an absence of at least one fall or spring semester who are under the age of 22 must submit documentation of immunization against bacterial meningitis. Students who fail to meet this requirement by the deadline will be dropped from courses. New international students are highly encouraged to receive their vaccination in their home country in order to meet the deadline for providing documentation for proof of the vaccination.

The law mandates that the following students be vaccinated against the bacterial meningitis:

  • First-time college students
  • Students transferring from another institution
  • Students who are re-enrolling following an absence of at least one fall or spring semester
  • Students previously or currently enrolled exclusively in UT Arlington online courses who enroll in a UT Arlington in-seat course in subsequent sessions
  • Individuals under age 22 who plan to audit a course

Students living in University Housing should also review information specific to housing contract requirements at http://www.uta.edu/housing/applications/meningitis.php.

  • The bacterial meningitis vaccine is available through Health Services for $130. An appointment is not required. Students with private insurance may be able to file a claim for reimbursement with their insurance provider afterward.
