Pharmacy Services

The Cowell Center has a limited in-house pharmacy. Most of the medications dispensed at Cowell are inexpensive because of the center’s nonprofit status. Charges for medications are generally billed to the student’s account, but cash and student flex are also accepted. 

Students may request a receipt from Cowell for insurance purposes.

Some of the Cowell Center medications include: 

  • Allergy and asthma medications 
  • Antibiotics 
  • Anti-Inflammatory medications (NSAIDS)
  • Cough and cold medications 
  • Topical rash treatments 
  • Nausea/vomiting medications 
  • Immunizations and travel medications
