Register Now for Fall 2010 at TAMIU

With summer activities on the brain and soothing evening breezes marking time, the start of the Fall semester seems far away, but the first day of classes is less than a month away. Classes start Monday, Aug. 23.

Please note that there have been some changes on campus. Most notable is the new University Success Center that serves one-stop shopping for current and prospective students. Also changing this Fall is mandatory meningitis vaccinations for first-time students living on campus.

The new University Success Center, now open, houses the Office of Admissions, Office of the University Registrar, Office of Financial Aid, Campus Card Services, Bursar’s Office, Office of Recruitment and School Relations, Student Success, Bookstore, Testing Center, University College, Advising and Mentoring Center, and Student Counseling Services.

Those students who plan to live on campus need to be aware of a new state law the calls for immunization against bacterial meningitis. While the law only applies to first time students living on campus, housing and residence life encourages all students planning to live on campus to get immunized.

“Evidence of the student having received the vaccination from an appropriate health practitioner must be provided. The student must have received the vaccination at least 10 days prior to the student taking up residence in University Housing,” explained Trevor C. Liddle, director, Office of Housing and Residence Life.

The “Jaime Schanbaum Act” requires that “all first-time students attending an institution of higher education in the state of Texas, including transfer students, who plan to reside in or have applied for University Housing, show evidence of vaccination against bacterial meningitis, allowing for medical or religious exemptions.”
