The Campus Health Pharmacy, located on the first floor of the Health Center Uptown, is staffed by board-certified pharmacists and technicians. We offer prescription services, over-the-counter products, and medication education and counseling.
Please note: If you are planning to visit the pharmacy, wait times are longest right before lunch and after 4 p.m. No new drop-offs for same-day service will be accepted after 4:30 p.m. Refill requests can be submitted online.
Your Medication Experts
Our pharmacists are your medication experts, committed to your well-being. As a member of your healthcare team, our pharmacists are available to provide a range of care for you:
- Dispense medications
- Ability to assist with monitoring your health and progress to optimize your response to medication therapies
- Educate you on the use of prescriptions and over-the-counter medications
- Educate and advise physicians, nurses, and other health professionals on medication therapy decisions
The pharmacy can fill prescriptions from the Health Center or Counseling Center providers as well as from providers not associated with Tulane; this includes both local and out-of-town practitioners. Students also have the option to choose an off-campus pharmacy to fill any prescriptions written by Campus Health providers.
Please note: All prescriptions must be picked up within seven days of being filled. After the seven days, the prescription will be placed on hold and can be filled if requested.
The Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans for prescriptions, but every insurance plan is different. Please learn your pharmacy benefits from your pharmacy insurance provider or check with the pharmacy to see if your insurance is accepted.
Text Alerts: Talk to the pharmacist to sign up for text alerts that will let you know when your prescription is ready for pick-up.
If you have a prescription filled by the Tulane Campus Health Pharmacy, you can submit your refill request in person, by phone (during office hours), or online 24/7:

If you choose to call your Campus Health provider about medication, please provide the following information to the patient representative who answers your call:
- Name of the prescribing provider
- Name of the medication
- Your splash ID
Once the request is received, the provider will contact you to clarify and confirm your request.
Be mindful that requests to fill prescriptions days or weeks early may be denied by your insurance because the refill is occurring too soon. If you are going home and have a short-term supply of medication on hand, ask your provider to send your prescription to your home pharmacy. Please provide your home pharmacy’s name, phone number, and address to your provider.
If you plan to remain local and would like to utilize the Campus Health Pharmacy during this time, ask your provider to send your prescription to the Campus Health Pharmacy. Currently there are no plans for long-term closures of the Campus Health Pharmacy.
As a reminder, prescriptions for stimulant medications that are controlled substances (ex: Adderall, Concerta, Focalin, Ritalin, Vyvanse) cannot be transferred from pharmacy to pharmacy and must be sent directly from your provider to the pharmacy location where you would like to pick up your prescription. Please note that certain controlled substances may not be filled electronically once you leave the state of Louisiana, so please request these transfers before leaving town.
If you have a non-stimulant prescription refill on file at the Campus Health Pharmacy, your prescription may be transferred remotely. To initiate the transfer, ask your home pharmacy to call the Tulane Campus Health Pharmacy at 504-862-8658.
