Meningitis Requirement - complete while you wait!

While you wait for the application to open, there is something important you can do to be ready.

Meningitis records can emailed to or faxed to 417-836-4133. You can also call Magers Medical Records at 417-836-4004 to confirm they have been received.

Missouri law requires every student residing on-campus to document they have received the meningococcal vaccine, unless a signed statement of medical or religious exemption is on file with the institution's administration. Students must have the meningitis vaccination or exemption on file before they will be given a room assignment.
