Pre-Registration Tasks

Meningitis Vaccination – State Law

All new GC credit and some continuing education (non-credit) students under the age of 22 must submit evidence of being immunized against meningococcal meningitis within the past five years. The requirements is the result of the 82nd Texas Legislature’s passage of Senate Bill 1107. It applies to all first-time freshmen, all new transfer students, all new and returning students. Students who do not provide the appropriate documentation will be withdrawn from their classes.


Texas law requires that all new students in a public college or university have their academic skill level assessed prior to entry in a college-level class. The assessment helps students understand their skill levels in reading, writing and math and enables them to enroll in classes that appropriately match each individual’s skill level. All students are required to complete a Pre-Assessment Activity that includes a quick review of sample test questions. Additional information about testing can be found in the college's Testing Center pages on the website.
