What do I need to do for Meningitis?

All students living on-campus MUST have a Meningitis vaccination or have a signed waiver on file with Student Services per the Meningitis policy. Policy is as follows:

Immunization Requirements for All Students
Meningitis: To reduce the spread of bacterial meningitis among the
student population, the Kansas Board of Regents requires all incoming
students residing in on campus housing to be vaccinated for meningitis
or to sign a waiver indicating that they refuse to receive the vaccine.
Non-compliant students will be placed on administrative hold following the first week of classes and remain on administrative hold until the compliance is documented with the Admissions Office. Students will be unable to enroll for the following semester until the hold is released.

Northwest Tech encourages all students to consider vaccination as well
as to become knowledgeable about meningitis and its symptoms in
order to reduce their personal risk. The vaccine is available at the
Sherman County Health Department or Goodland Regional Medical
Center.

If a student elects to purchase an iPad through the college, they should expect to see approximately $750 worth of charges. The cost of the iPad is $500+tax, $80+tax for a protective case, $100 for insurance policy, and about $45 for network fees. The iPad will remain the property of the college until the student’s account is paid, at which time there will be a transfer of ownership.

Yes, however due to the rapid advancements with technology the College recommends bringing at least a 4th Generation iPad, with minimum of 8GB storage available. We also suggest a protective “Otterbox style” case, and some type of damage insurance.
