Meningitis Information

The state of Kansas requires all residence hall students to provide proof of the Meningitis Vaccination or have a waiver form on file prior to living in the residence halls. No student will be allowed to check into the residence halls without completing this process. Residents will need to have proof of vaccination, receive the vaccination on move-in day at the Student Health information station, or fill out a waiver form to complete the move-in process. Please make every effort to address this before arriving on campus. For more information please visit www.fhsu.edu/studenthealth/ or call 785-628-4293 or fax information to 785-628-4089.
