The Kansas Board of Regents requires state universities to establish polices that require all incoming students residing in university housing to be vaccinated for meningitis.    All newly enrolled PSU students living in university-owned group housing are required to be vaccinated for meningitis within the past five (5) years.  If the vaccination was received greater than 5 years ago, a booster dose will be necessary.   In the absence of proof of the meningitis vaccination, an enrollment hold will be applied and the student will be unable to enroll in subsequent semesters.

In addition, Pittsburg State University has recently adopted an immunization compliance policy for ALL new incoming students.  For more information regarding the Immunization Compliance Policy; click on the "Immunization Compliance" link on the Bryant Student Health Center website
