Students may request "over the counter" (non-prescription) medications at any time during the Pharmacy's hours of operation. The selection of medications includes: Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, nasal decongestants and cough syrup. Students will receive a charge on their student account for any over the counter medication obtained from the pharmacy.

The Self Help Center is located in the lobby of the health center near the pharmacy. If you are interested in obtaining medication from the Self-Help Center, please answer the questions on the self help center form, take a number from the pharmacy stand, and wait for your turn at the pharmacy.
