Advantages of renewing online:

Fast—it only takes a few minutes and you will receive a confirmation when you finish, so you will know your renewal is complete. In most instances, your new license is mailed to you the next business day after you renew - sometimes even the same day. Your renewed license information will be available on our License Verification Database the day after you renew.

Convenient—you can complete your renewal 24 hours a day, seven days a week at any location with Internet access.

Accurate – you must enter all of your information as the on-line renewal will not allow you to leave required information blank; therefore, your renewal form will not be returned because you left something blank or forgot to sign it.

No lost payments—you use a credit card or electronic check to renew.

No postage required—your renewal notice will not be returned to you because you forgot to include postage.

Will not get lost in the mail—the confirmation you receive will allow your renewal application to be traced internally should any issues arise. 

There are two exceptions to the online license renewal process at this time: 

  • Initiating or renewing an inactive license status.  You will need to obtain a printed renewal form.
  • We have opened up online renewals, even if you have had new discipline during the last renewal period; however, you will need to submit a paper copy of the discipline to the board office.  You can proceed with an online renewal, but the license will be pending until the discipline review is completed.

Employers are encouraged to have a computer with Internet access available, for their employees to use at the work site, for the purpose of license renewal. This will accommodate early license renewal by employees and result in fewer last minute renewal problems. Remember that renewals postmarked after your license expiration will be considered lapsed. Any licensee or registrant practicing on a lapsed license can and will be fined. Don’t delay, renew as soon as you receive the notice (and the renewal period opens) to avoid penalties and delays in receiving your renewed license.

The Board of Pharmacy urges you to take advantage of the online renewal process. However, if you are unable to renew online please contact our office at [email protected] to request a printed renewal form.
