Submitting Proof of Meningitis Vaccination

As a newly-admitted Bobcat, you are required to submit proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination, or of an exemption, through Magnus Health SMR, prior to registration. You will not be allowed to register unless you have completed the meningitis vaccination requirement or submitted the proper exemption forms.  It may take up to four days after submitting documents to Magnus before the registration “hold” can be removed.  Students should allow ample time to avoid problems with registration.
