The Student Health and Wellness Center Pharmacy is a state-owned, fully licensed pharmacy. All eligible students, faculty, and staff, with a UNT ID card, may use the SHWC Pharmacy. If you are not currently enrolled in classes and are unsure of your eligibility, please call (940) 565-2790 to speak with a Pharmacy representative to determine if you are still able to use this service.
The SHWC Pharmacy is conveniently located in Chestnut Hall on the first floor across from the elevator.
The SHWC Pharmacy fills prescriptions obtained from SHWC medical providers as well as outside medical providers. Your primary physician may call your prescription into us at (940) 565-2790 or fax us at (940) 565-3150. Prescriptions not picked up within 7 days will be returned to stock.
You can request refills in advance by calling (940) 565-2790. Please have your prescription number ready to give to the technician when calling. Please be aware that if your prescription is out of refills it may take up to 48 hours for additional refills to be obtained through your physician.
Do you currently have a refill at a different pharmacy that you would like to fill here at UNT? No problem! Bring in your latest prescription label or receipt and we'll take care of the rest. If you don't have either a label or receipt just provide us with your name and date of birth, pharmacy name and phone number, and prescription number or drug name.
The SHWC Pharmacy accepts most commercial pharmacy insurance plans (e.g. PCS, CVS/Caremark, Express Scripts, BC/BS Texas (Prime), Aetna, Optum, and Federal Blue Cross). If unsure whether we accept your prescription insurance, just call the SHWC Pharmacy and provide the BIN (bank identification number) located on the card or stop by and present your card at the front desk. Some examples of BINs we accept:
If we do not accept your insurance plan, we will be happy to give you a price check as we try to keep our prescription prices affordable, even without insurance.
At this time we are unable to accept Tricare insurance or Medicaid plans.
Starting October 4, faculty and staff can request delivery of their prescription from the UNT Pharmacy to their office on the main Denton campus or at the Athletic Complex. Please call the pharmacy to request delivery. Credit card and Android/Apple pay payments can be accepted at delivery or payment can be collected in advance when scheduling the delivery. Over-the-counter medications and hygiene items can also be delivered with a prescription if ordered when requesting prescription delivery.
Arrangements can be made for another person other than the patient to accept a prescription, but the patient must provide the first and last name of the other person when requesting delivery. Only the patient can accept prescriptions for controlled substances.
SHWC Pharmacy also offers a variety of over-the-counter (OTC) products, including allergy and pain relief medication, condoms, first aid supplies, and even PlanB, for purchase without a prescription. Hygiene products like shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, and shaving supplies are also available.
We welcome any medication questions and are happy to provide you with information about any medication.
Payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, credit card (American Express, Discover, Mastercard & Visa), and Apple/Android payments.
The SHWC Pharmacy will not disclose Protected Health Information about our patients without prior written consent from the patient on a per request basis. For patients under 18 years of age, parents may request most medical information. Call for details at (940) 565-2790.
