Student Health Services (SHS) mental health and primary care clinicians will provide evidence-based treatment for patients diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Requesting ADHD Treatment
Neuropsychological testing is required before medication/s can be prescribed. If testing results indicate that the student may benefit from the use of a psychostimulant medication/s, he/she will be required to see a primary care or mental health provider at SHS for initiation of medication/s. Students will be required to sign a Psychostimulant Medication Contract initially and on a yearly basis thereafter, informing him/her about the responsibilities of taking a Schedule II drug. View a list of testing sites in Grand Forks here.
Transfer Care and Refill Medication/s for ADHD
Records indicating diagnosis and psychological testing of ADHD, including medical management must be provided to SHS. Psychostimulants will not be prescribed until records of neuropsychological testing and medical management have been received and scanned into the patient's chart. SHS may need to request neuropsychological retesting if records show prior testing was done as a child (under the age of 15). The brain has changed/matures since childhood, the student is now on his/her own, and may require new or different accommodations in his/her learning through DSS to promote/ensure academic success. Students must see a medical provider for refills. Provider/s may track usage and prescriptions via the Board of Pharmacy Prescription Refill Monitoring Program.
Students who need allergy shots may receive them at Student Health Services by appointment, for a minimal charge.
You may bring your allergy serum directly to Student Health Services along with instruction guidelines from your prescribing physician. Your physician/allergist may also send allergy serum directly to Student Health Services with written instructions on administration protocol. Allergy shots cannot be administered without these protocol instructions from a physician.
Students are required to remain in the clinic for 30 minutes following the injection to assess for possible reaction.
Compliance with your allergy shots schedule is required to enhance the desensitization treatment and to help you maintain optimal health. After all, that is the ultimate goal of allergy treatment!

Anyone who is traveling to another country should be aware of the potential health risks associated with their travel. A travel consultation provides valuable, individualized information on recommended immunizations and tips on how to reduce your risk of injury or illnesses that are specific to the area you will be visiting.
Student Health Services can also administer the recommended vaccines along with providing safety and disease avoiding tips relative to your itinerary.
Consultations take about 1.5 hours and are available throughout the year by appointment. Please bring your travel itinerary and vaccination records with to this appointment.
Please schedule a consultation at least 8 weeks prior to your departure date for the following reasons:
- Several vaccines require sequential spacing of the doses in a series to provide the optimum level of immunity and protection
- Some vaccines must be completed within a specific time span prior to travel, both for the travel's protection and to fulfill legal requirements at ports of entry
- If medications are needed, for malaria for example, several doses must be taken prior to the departure date to provide the full therapeutic effect.
Please note that travel vaccines can be expensive and not all insurance companies cover the cost of the immunizations. Check with your insurance company prior to getting any vaccines.
