MEDICATION

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 purchasing the prescription from an area pharmacy of their choice.

STUDENT INSURANCE

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 on the health center webpage under health plan.

EXCUSES

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.
