All name changes must be supported with at least one of the following: a marriage certificate, a divorce decree, or an official court document authorizing the name change.

Request a Duplicate License?

In the event your license is either lost or destroyed, a duplicate license can be reissued. The Board requests that these requests be submitted by fax or email. Please indicate your license number on all correspondence.

Renew my License?

Approximately 8 weeks before the expiration date of your license, a renewal reminder will be mailed to your last known address on file at the Board office. Online renewal will be available beginning the first week of January. Please print a renewal application if you wish to submit by mail. Do not submit proof of continuing education (CE) with your renewal. CE Audits are conducted using the NABP CPE Monitor. Please check your account periodically to avoid any discrepancies. Pharmacists newly licensed during the previous year are exempt from the current year CE requirements. A pharmacist license which is not renewed within thirty days from the expiration date will be placed in LAPSED status. In order to resume the practice of pharmacy in Kentucky subsequent to non-renewal, a pharmacist may be required to take and pass the MPJE and/or the NAPLEX.

Place my License in an Inactive Status?

Information about placing your Pharmacy License in an Inactive Status can be found on our Inactive Pharmacist Information page.‚Äč
