According to federal law, prescription medications may only be mailed by Drug Enforcement Administration’s registered distributors, pharmacies, and medical providers. Such mailed packages are labeled as medication and treated with the highest priority when received by Campus Mail Services. If your student needs prescription medication, have their doctor or pharmacy mail their prescription to their campus address. Also, the UA Student Health Center and Pharmacy on campus can conveniently fill prescriptions from students’ doctors, or prescriptions can be transferred to one of the many local pharmacies in Tuscaloosa.
