Medication

The Student Health Center does not have a full service pharmacy and cannot fill prescriptions written by clinicians outside the Center. The Student Health Center does stock a limited selection of commonly prescribed medications, including some antibiotics, some birth control pills, and some prescription skin creams.

 If a prescription medicine is recommended by a Student Health Center clinician students have the option to: 

  • Purchase the medication in the Student Health Center (if available) - If purchased in the Center, you will receive a receipt which may be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement (if the policy allows for this). Medication prices are subject to change based on manufacturer's pricing and availability.
  • Take the prescription to a local pharmacy of choice
  • Order the medication from Wegmans for free delivery to the Student Health Center
    Students are encouraged to sign up for Wegmans delivery, just in case.

RIT has many transportation options available for students.

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. It is best to arrange this ahead of time before the medication runs out.
