Our Pharmacy is conveniently located inside the Student Health Center and Pharmacy (SHCP) lobby, just steps from our clinic.

Pharmacy hours.

Our pharmacy carries many common prescription items as well as over-the-counter medications and toiletries used by college-age students. We can fill prescriptions, including ones from your family physician, provided the medications are stocked in our Pharmacy. Refills may be requested by phone or through our online Pharmacy. Prescriptions and over-the-counter items can be charged to student accounts, FSA/HSA cards, or credit cards.

Please remember to bring your ACTion card and health/pharmacy insurance card. If you have questions about your prescription or any of our over-the-counter products, call 205-348-6276.

Over the Counter Items (OTC)

The Pharmacy carries a small selection of over-the-counter items available for purchase. These items will be billed to the student’s account.

  • Cough and cold
  • Allergy
  • Personal hygiene
  • Vitamins
  • Antacids/Gastrointestinal

We recommend students have a first aid kit available to them on campus. For our list, see the First Aid Kit page.

Our pharmacists are available to offer counseling (free of charge) to discuss your medications, health concerns or to recommend OTC products to treat short-term illnesses that don’t require a doctor’s visit.

New Prescriptions and Refills

The Pharmacy can fill prescriptions for students who present their ID. Students should also present their insurance card. Prescriptions can be from outside providers as well as from our own clinic. We accept written, call-in, fax and E-Script prescriptions. If a student has current refills at another pharmacy, we will be glad to transfer the prescriptions to our Pharmacy.
