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 for insurance purposes.
