The providers at SHAC routinely send prescriptions to the CVS pharmacy at 43rd and Locust. However, prescriptions can be sent to a student’s preferred pharmacy. There is no delivery service available from a pharmacy to Student Health Services. Students are responsible for picking up any medications directly from the pharmacy.

If you take daily medication(s), please work with your current (home) pharmacy to transfer those prescriptions to one of the pharmacies near campus before the start of the academic year. If covered by your insurance plan, we would encourage you to take advantage of any bulk mail order service. Please note: Any student utilizing this service should not have medication(s) sent to Student Health Services. Students should use their personal, local address or the on-campus mail room.
