Student Health Center

Medications

The SHC does not have a pharmacy and cannot fill prescriptions written by providers outside the Center. We do stock a limited selection of commonly prescribed medications, including: some antibiotics, some birth control pills and Depo Provera, and some prescription skin creams. If you are given a prescription by a SHC provider for a medicine we carry, you have two options:

  • You may purchase it in the Center OR:
  • You may be given a prescription to bring to a local pharmacy of your choice.

If you purchase medication in the SHC, you will be given a receipt which you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if your policy allows. Medication prices are subject to change based on manufacturer's pricing and availability.

Transportation options

If you are taking medication, please discuss with your provider and/or parents how you will obtain refills while at RIT. Some students obtain refills while home on breaks, some arrange to have them mailed to school. Obviously, it is best to figure this out ahead of time, not when you are about to run out of the medicine.
