Student Health Center

Medications

The SHC does not have a pharmacy and cannot fill prescriptions written by providers outside the Center. The SHC does stock a limited selection of commonly prescribed medications, including some antibiotics, some birth control pills and Depo Provera, and some prescription skin creams.

If a prescription medicine is recommended by a SHC clinician students have the option to:

  • Purchase the medication in the SHC (if available)
  • Take the prescription to a local pharmacy of choice
  • Order the medication from Wegmans for free delivery to the SHC

If medication is purchased in the SHC, the student will be given a receipt which may be submitted to his/her insurance company for reimbursement (if your policy allows for this). Medication prices are subject to change based on manufacturer's pricing and availability.

Students are encouraged to sign up for Wegmans delivery, just in case.

Transportation Options

Note: Students who take prescribed medication regularly should discuss with the prescriber and parents how to 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, before the medication runs out.
