Pharmacist License Renewal

Use these simple steps to renew your pharmacist license online:

  1. ( Skip this step if you are registered and already have an online account.)
    Register for an account with the online system, even if you are a current licensee, but only if you do not already have an online account. Registering an account will set up a user ID, and a temporary password will be emailed to you within minutes. Using a personal email address when registering is suggested since changing employment can occur. Check your junk /spam email folder if a temporary password is not received within minutes. Forgot your password? Use the Forgot Password link on the right side of log in screen.

  2. ( Skip this step if you have already added your license to your online account .)
    After you set up the account, you will need to "add your license" to the account by clicking on this link from the main menu and then provide your SSN, date of birth, and home address zip code currently in board records. Adding your license to the account will allow you to access your license information for renewal, and to submit changes to your address and employment. Errors commonly occur at this step due to information not matching board records.

  3. When logged into your account, click on your license number link on the right side of the main menu for access to the renewal application. Please note: License expiration dates are updated on the TSBP website the following business day in the License and Registration Verifications section.

Credit Card payment required (no phone payments): Pay with MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express. After submitting your application, a copy of your application summary and online payment receipt will be emailed to you.

Examples in which a pharmacist may be ineligible to renew online:

  • Agency records indicate that your current license does not expire within 60 days from today.
  • Social Security Number, date of birth, or home address zip code does not exist in agency records, or is incorrect. Email License@pharmacy.texas.gov if you receive an error message when attempting to add your license to your account.
  • Change of Name. Additional documentation is required. Email license@pharmacy.texas.gov for information on processing a name change with your license renewal.
  • Requesting to go from Inactive to Active status. Email License@pharmacy.texas.gov for additional information.

During the online process you will be asked questions about your employment relationships. If employed by a pharmacy licensed by the Texas State Board of Pharmacy you will need to provide the pharmacy license number. To verify a pharmacy license number please check the following link to the TSBP Pharmacy Database: http://www.tsbp.state.tx.us/dbsearch/phy_search.asp

DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE! Allow sufficient time for delays if assistance is needed with the process!

Please KEEP your online payment receipt that will be emailed to you as confirmation of your paid renewal. Obtaining a transaction number does not constitute completion and payment of your renewal. An unsuccessful attempt to renew your license online does not satisfy the statutory requirement of filing the renewal application and paying the fee prior to the license expiration.
