While we try to get our patients taken care of as quickly as possible, the busiest times of the day are between the hours of 10 am -12 pm and 2 pm - 4 pm.

I'm going away for the summer (holidays, semester, etc). How can I be sure to have enough medication?
Typically, you can get enough medication to get you through the time you will be gone. If the cost is too high at one time, we can always transfer your prescription to your home town pharmacy for the summer and transfer back any remaining refills in the Fall.

Can my roommate (friend, family member, etc.) pick up my prescription for me?
If someone is going to pick up your order for you, you must fill out a Prescription Release Authorization at the Pharmacy to be kept on file.

How do I purchase over-the-counter items, like aspirin or band-aids?
We have recently expanded our over-the-counter (OTC) section to include a larger variety of items. These items can be purchased by bringing them to the Cashier/Check-Out counter near the pharmacy. If there is a specific item you would like, please ask us to order it for you.

What services are available for Georgia Tech staff and faculty members?
The pharmacy will gladly fill your prescriptions for you! Additionally, our system has an "auto-refill" option that will allow us to refill your prescriptions and text you when ready for pick up.
