Student Health Service’s medical representative can prescribe medications for students. We can also help process prescriptions given to students by their hometown practitioners.

Prescriptions are billed to insurance by the pharmacy, and the co-pays are placed on the student’s account as an “infirmary charge.” Students must have updated proof of insurance, including copies of separate prescription cards and flexible spending cards if applicable.

Prescription refills and renewals are also available. Students should request refills and renewals at least 3-5 days before their medication supply runs out.

As an added convenience, prescription medication is delivered to Student Health Services daily Monday-Friday. Medications are typically placed in the student’s mailbox by 5:00pm. Students are responsible for picking up their prescriptions; mail can be accessed between 7:00am and 12:00am. Any uncollected deliveries will be disposed of by the end of the semester. Charges still apply.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Students are responsible for keeping controlled medications in a secure place.
