The WSSU Wellness Center Pharmacy is a full service pharmacy that offers prescription services. We are an affordable and convenient option for students. The pharmacy is located within the lobby of the A. H. Ray Student Health Center, just steps from our clinic. It is approximately between the Anderson Center and Gleason Residence Hall. We carry a wide range of low cost prescriptions and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. A full-time pharmacist provides individual counseling for students with a minimal wait time.

The pharmacy fills prescriptions from WSSU Student Health Center practitioners, as well as outside physicians and practitioners. You may bring your new prescription to the pharmacy, have your healthcare provider send it in by electronic script (e-script), call it in at 336-750-3366, or fax it in at 336-750-3399. Bring your student I.D., a valid driver's license, or your passport. We will fill your Rx while you wait.
To refill a prescription that was last filled at our pharmacy and that has valid refills remaining, you will need to leave the patients name, date of birth, and name of your medication and the prescription number (if you have it). Come to the pharmacy with your student I.D. and we will fill your prescription while you wait.
You should bring the old medication bottle(s) or label(s) to our pharmacy. The label lists necessary information, including the prescription number and contact information for the other pharmacy. We will call your pharmacy to transfer and fill your prescription if refills remain.
Refills after Graduation
We cannot refill prescriptions after you have graduated from WSSU. Your graduation day is the last day we will fill your prescriptions. If refills remain on your prescription after you have graduated, you may transfer that prescription to an outside pharmacy.
There are charges for all items purchased at the pharmacy. Purchases can be paid in full at the time of your visit at the WSSU Wellness Center Check-In Counter by credit/debit or cash.
Most third party insurance plans are accepted. The first time a student purchases a prescription at the pharmacy, he or she will need to present a prescription insurance card. Be sure to bring it when visiting the health center. The cost of your prescription may be reimbursable through your insurance company. The cost of non-prescription or OTC medications are not reimbursable by any prescription insurance companies.
WSSU Students are not required to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP). However, the university encourages students and their families to compare their existing plan to the student plan. Student health insurance must be activated in order to purchase prescriptions. At the beginning of each semester, students are urged to go online and activate their insurance to avoid prescription insurance issues.
In most cases, students and their families find that the student health plan costs less and provides more convenient and comprehensive coverage than their current health plan. Your prescription co-pay will always be $15.00 dollars for any drug unless the price is less than $15.00 dollars, then you pay that price as the co-pay. If the prescription price is $15.00 dollars or more, the co-pay will always be $15.00 (i.e., if the prescription price is $350.00 dollars, the co-pay is still $15.00, brand or generic)
We will fill prescriptions for all summer school students. Students who are not enrolled in the summer semester, but have completed the previous spring semester and have classes scheduled for the fall semester are eligible to fill or refill their prescriptions during the summer.
