Prescription Medicine

Prescriptions ordered by the Student Health Services’ practitioner can be electronically sent to the pharmacy of the student’s choice, or students can be given a paper prescription to take to their pharmacy.  There is NO on-campus Pharmacy.  Robbins Pharmacy, located at 2108 Pennington Rd, Ewing, NJ, is located 1/2 mile from the TCNJ entrance and is very walkable.  Other pharmacies, such as Walgreens, Quick Chek, CVS and Rite Aid, are in Ewing, but further away from campus.

As a courtesy to our students, Student Health Services has partnered with Quick Chek Pharmacy, located at 1535 Pennington Rd, Ewing, NJ 08618, to provide students with the option to have their prescription medicine delivered to Student Health Services after 3 p.m. Monday – Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters when the College is open.  This service is FREE.  Delivery provided directly to the student’s residence hall, and at a time of their choosing is not available.  Students with prescriptions from their own healthcare provider can use this services as well.  Please call Quick Chek Pharmacy directly to make the necessary arrangements by calling 609-883-5724.

This service works only if the student has their health insurance prescription drug card with them at their visit.  Student Health Services will fax the  card information to Quick Chek Pharmacy.  Students must then PICK UP THEIR PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE and have a major credit card to pay for any out-of-pocket cost not covered by their prescription drug insurance.  Our office does NOT know what this cost will be because each student has a different prescription plan and different co-pays for each prescription drug.  NOTE: We can ONLY accept major credit cards (i.e., Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover) on behalf of Quick Chek Pharmacy.  We cannot accept CASH, personal checks, or Flex Spending cards on behalf of the Pharmacy.
