Obtain Fingerprint Session


Technicians are required to renew their registration every two years on or before the last day of the month their original technician registration was issued.
Beginning January 2019 all pharmacy technicians will required to be fingerprinted or re-fingerprinted if they were registered before June 1, 2015 before the renewal will be processed.    If you need to verify the date your registration was issued, go to Pharmacy Technician / Technician Trainee Search and search by registration number or by name.

A link to schedule your fingerprints will be emailed to the address provided on your profile after you have submitted your online renewal application.  If you live outside of Texas, request a fingerprint card to be mailed to you by providing a current mailing address to fingerprints@pharmacy.texas.gov.   The fee for fingerprinting is less than $50. 
You do NOT need to wait until your renewal period to submit updated fingerprints to the Texas State Board of Pharmacy.  If your fingerprints are outdated and you would prefer to complete your fingerprint session prior to your next renewal, submit a request to receive the fingerprint information by emailing fingerprints@pharmacy.texas.gov.  When emailing, provide your full name with your technician registration number.


Pharmacist Applicants must complete a fingerprint session, unless fingerprinted with a different application type for TSBP within the past 36 months.  The fee for fingerprinting is less than $50.  Fingerprint session instructions will be sent to the applicant via email after the application has been received by the board.  If you have submitted an application and did not receive the email, contact the Board at (512) 305-8000.  
Applicants (using an address) not located in Texas, will receive a packet in the mail with a fingerprint form and instructions sheet because the approved state vendor does not always allow a digital scan. The fingerprint packet is automatically mailed to the address provided on the application. Allow 2 to 3 weeks the packet to arrive via U.S. Postal Service.
