Managing College Cost is a great website for parents, students, and educators. It is free and created by a high school counselor who felt he had to do something for parents after he had his own trouble working the “system” to get his own kids in college. He felt that if he had trouble with his background, he had to do something for parents who were not college educated or educators.

-Starting fall 2012, a bacterial meningitis vaccine REQUIRED to attend all Texas college campuses whether you live on campus or not.
See the website of the college you plan on attending for complete details
The law requires all new and transfer students attending Texas institutions of higher education to be vaccinated against bacterial meningitis.Meningococcal disease is a bacterial infection that spreads like the flu, through coughing or sneezing, by sharing drinks or eating utensils or through other person-to-person contact. The disease is easily spread in close living conditions. It can kill in less than one day.
Students must get the meningitis shot 10 days before starting classes. "It takes 10 days for the vaccine to have an effect on the body," explained Dr. John Shelton, assistant clinical director at the University of North Texas. "So, you're not really protected against meningitis until at least 10 days has passed." Students who show up without the required vaccine will be refused entrance to school classes and dorms. There are no exceptions.
