We keep many commonly prescribed and over-the-counter medications in stock for your convenience. These are provided to you at cost and charges are posted to your Student Account. Prescribed medications that are not available in the Health Center will be referred to one of the many pharmacies in the area for prescription pick-up.

Many students choose the Walgreens delivery option and have their medications sent to the Health Center for pick-up. You may use this delivery option with prescriptions sent from home as well. We encourage you to set up an account in advance of any medical need. Your information will be kept on file with Walgreens and only needs to be updated if your personal information changes.

Please note, the Health Center does not provide attendance notes to excuse students for late attendance or missed class(es). Students are expected to attend class when well enough and to communicate directly with your professors when feeling so unwell as to be unable to attend class.

We do send Illness Reports to professors when students experience a severe illness or injury and COVID-19 related isolation/quarantine.
