Effective Jan. 1, 2014, state law (Senate Bill 62) requires that students up to age 21 entering a public, private, or independent institution of higher education in Texas provide proof of immunization for bacterial meningitis. The vaccination or booster dose must have been received during the five years prior to enrollment and at least ten days before the start of classes. Students who have been previously enrolled at Texas State, and are enrolling following a break in enrollment of at least one fall or spring semester will be subject to the vaccination requirement. Students transferring from another institution of higher education will also be subject to the vaccination requirement. Texas State requires you to meet this requirement before you will be allowed to register for classes.
Do not submit your vaccination proof to Undergraduate Admissions, or the Student Health Center.
Texas State uses Magnus Health SMR for managing compliance with the meningitis vaccination requirement.

Students subject to the bacterial meningitis requirement will receive an e-mail from Magnus Health SMR with instructions. Students will be charged $10 by Magnus Health SMR for processing the documents and verifying compliance with the vaccination requirement.
