Prescription Medications

The SHC does not have a pharmacy and cannot fill prescriptions written by providers outside the Center. We do have a limited selection of commonly prescribed medications available for purchase when prescribed by a SHC clinician. If you take a medication that will need to be refilled at school, talk with your medical provider and make a plan for obtaining refills.

The SHC has an agreement with Wegmans Food Markets for Free Pharmacy delivery for RIT students. For more information see our Medication page.
