Non-prescription medications are kept in stock at the health center and are available to the students. However, when the nurse practitioner writes a prescription, the student is responsible for securing the purchase.
All students enrolled at Grambling State University, who paid health insurance fees at the time of registration, are covered by a limited student insurance plan. Faculty/staff, with tuition exemption, are excluded from this plan. If the student's health insurance denies the claim, all payments are the responsibility of the student. Insurance brochures are available at the health center.
Excuses will be issued for medical emergencies only. You should plan your non-emergency visits during your free period. When you report to the Health Center, it is assumed that you are not missing a class. No personal excuses for exams are given. See your class instructor.
