Patient Education: Our pharmacists maintain a high level of education and provide thorough consultation services to students. We know that many students are away from home for the first time, and we strive to educate students on the proper way to take their medications, and make them aware of possible interactions and allergies.  Pharmacy staff is always available to answer prescription or over-the-counter medication questions.

Prescriptions: Prescription services are available to Sac State students only. The pharmacy stocks an extensive inventory to accommodate our student population with medications most commonly prescribed.

Please call the pharmacy at (916) 278-6040 if you have any questions about which medications we carry. If you require a special-order medication, please check with the pharmacy staff for availability and cost.
