Immunizations

Immunization documentation is not required for University enrollment, except for those in allied health studies and for those required to have the meningitis vaccine. However, immunizations against diphtheria, hepatitis A and B, influenza, measles, meningitis, mumps, pertussis, poliomyelitis, rubella, tetanus and varicella are encouraged to prevent outbreak and spread of these diseases. Information about these and other available immunizations can be obtained from Student Health Service on the Denton campus, from the Assistant Director of Student Life in Dallas, and from the Assistant Director of Student Life on the Houston campus.

Please contact Student Health Services, a private physician, or the local health department to arrange immunizations.
