  • Nonresident Pharmacy registrations previously expired October 15 of odd-numbered years.  As of July 11, 2011, the Board voted to change the expiration date to December 31, 2011, in order to coincide with the in-state pharmacy renewal cycle.  Renewal notices are still being sent out 60 days prior to the previous expiration date of October 15, 2011; however you may renew through December 31, 2011 without penalty.
  • The pharmacy renewal fee is $200.


Renewal notices are mailed sixty (60) days prior to the expiration date.  This notice is mailed to your address of record with the Board.  The Board has no way of knowing whether or not a notice reaches its destination; therefore, when a notice has been mailed, the duty of the Board has been performed.

Online Renewal
LicenseExpress is the online renewal option that is available on the website.  The online renewal system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by using your complete license number (64000000A) as your Login ID and your password.  You are able to pay your renewal fees by using Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit card on our secure server.  There are access & credit card fees associated with renewing on-line; no part of these fees comes to IPLA.

Using LicenseExpress to renew takes only minutes and your renewal will be processed and available for verification the next business day.  You are able to update your e-mail address and telephone number as part of the renewal process.

The LicenseExpress online renewal option is available 60 days prior to your license expiration date; you do not have to receive your renewal notice prior to using this system.

Be prepared to provide the following with your online renewal:

  1. Nonresident pharmacy's DEA number, if applicable;
  2. Nonresident pharmacy's NCPDP number (previously known as the NABP number);
  3. Qualifying pharmacist's name and contact information; and
  4. Contact person responsible for receipt of information.

Paper Renewal
The paper renewal notice is mailed sixty (60) days prior to expiration.  Please allow ample mailing time for you to return the renewal application to our office prior to the expiration date of your license so that your license may be renewed timely.

The only payments options associated with the paper renewal are check or money order; we cannot accept credit/debit card payments with paper renewals.

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions regarding disciplinary actions, arrests, convictions, etc., when completing the renewal process, then you must explain fully, including all related details, in a signed and notarized statement.

You must also submit documentation regarding the incident(s) in question.  This documentation must include all court documentation, disciplinary orders, etc.  If you have completed any terms or conditions (criminal, disciplinary, etc.), verification of this must also be submitted.

The Board reserves the right to request additional information to help them make an informed decision regarding your renewal.   The Board may also request a personal appearance in front of them to discuss the response(s).

As of January 1, 2009, a nonresident pharmacy that dispenses more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the pharmacy's total prescription volume as a result of an original prescription order received or solicited through the Internet must be accredited through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy's (NABP) VIPPS program and shall obtain and display a seal of approval on their internet site and anywhere the pharmacy advertises.  If you are required to hold the VIPPS accreditation, you must submit a copy of this accreditation with your paper renewal application or, if renewing online, you may fax a copy to 317.233.4236 or by e-mail at
