South Plains College Extends Meningitis Vaccination Date
Students without the newly required meningitis vaccine will be allowed to attend South Plains College under conditional enrollment through January 26th due to the large number of enrolled students who have yet to get the vaccine. The vaccination deadline was originally January 6th, however it was delayed because of a shortage of vaccines.
Students will have through January 26th to provide proof of vaccination for the spring semester. Approximately 400 enrolled students who are required to have the vaccination have not yet been vaccinated. New students, or students who did not attend SPC in the fall of 2011 are required by law to get the vaccine. To obtain conditional enrollment status students must contact the Office of Admissions in person.
