2017-2018 Graduate Catalog


Health Services

The Brown-Lupton Health Center houses the Medical Clinic and is located immediately north of the University Union on Stadium Drive. The Medical Clinic outpatient facility provides ambulatory care for the various needs of TCU students and is staffed by board-certified physicians, a physician assistant, a nurse practitioner who specializes in women's healthcare, and a professional nursing staff comprising RN's and LVN.'s. During the regular academic year, the clinic hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

An independent pharmacy conveniently located within the Health Center offers competitively priced prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. The pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. Co-pays and medication costs can be billed to the student's University account or paid for by cash or check at the time the prescription is filled.

Although not required for graduate students, the TCU Student Health Insurance Plan is available for students attending credit courses who specifically elect the plan. Internet and television (TV) courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements. After registering for classes, a student can elect the University-offered plan online at www.healthcenter.tcu.edu prior to the semester's elect/waive deadline.

International students, regardless of classification, are required to carry the University-offered student health insurance as a minimum standard of coverage and are not eligible for a waiver of the insurance.
