If the meningitis law applies to you, you can register and pay for classes while you complete the requirement.
IMPORTANT: Your documents must be processed and approved by the Magnus Health before your tuition deadline or you will be dropped from classes without notice.
Ways to comply with law
ACC uses Magnus Health to verify all meningitis vaccination records.
You may choose to:
- Submit proof of vaccination within the last five years to Magnus Health; or
- Opt out of the vaccine by submitting an exemption form based on medical reasons or conscientious objection.
How to submit documents
Vaccination records & medical exemptions
To submit vaccination records or medical exemptions:

Conscientious objection exemption
A printer is required to submit the conscientious objection steps:
