Note: This app does not take the place of the DTS Text and Email Alert System (www.dts.edu/account/alerts). The text alert system will send out texts and/or emails to those who have enrolled of potential emergency situations on our Dallas and extension campuses. The CrisisManager app provides instructions for what to do in an emergency. These two systems work together to provide the safest possible learning environment for our students, faculty, and staff. Please use both.

Student Health Insurance
DTS strongly encourages students to obtain health insurance due to the high cost of medical care. If a student does not elect to have health insurance coverage while enrolled in seminary, the student understands and agrees any medical bill or liability is not the responsibility of DTS and is a personal cost.
All international students on a F-1 or J-1 visa are required to carry health insurance and should consult the International Student Policies section of this handbook for additional information specific to international students.
During the 2011 Texas legislative session, Texas Senate Bill 1107 (SB 1107) was passed and signed into law. Effective January 1, 2012, SB 1107 requires all students under age 22 entering a public or private institution of higher education in Texas to receive a vaccination against bacterial meningitis at least ten days before the first day of the semester, or meet certain criteria for declining such a vaccination. The term “entering student” includes all new students to any DTS campus and returning DTS students to any Texas campus that have taken the most recent fall or spring semester off from enrollment. Any entering student thus defined is required to provide documentation no less than 10 days prior to the first day of classes. Once having received the vaccination please complete the Bacterial Meningitis Form* online, then submit the appropriate documentation as evidence of the vaccination.
Students are strongly encouraged to obtain the bacterial meningitis vaccination before entering the United States or moving to the Dallas area.
