Texas Requirements for Licensure by Examination

Visit the Texas State Board of Pharmacy website for detailed information, instructions, and application forms.

To be eligible to be licensed as a pharmacist in Texas, an individual must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age;
  • Have obtained a B.S. in Pharmacy or a Pharm.D. degree from a Board approved, ACPE accredited college of pharmacy program, or have graduated from a college of pharmacy outside the U.S. and have obtained a full certification from the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Equivalency Committee (FPGEC);
  • Take and pass the NAPLEX and Texas Pharmacy Jurisprudence examination; and
  • Complete 1500 hours of Board approved internship.

Examination Requirements
In order for an applicant to be licensed in Texas by examination, you must register and pass the North American Pharmacist Examination (NAPLEX) and the Texas Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination, more commonly known as the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE). These examinations are administered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).

The two examinations are scored independently. If the applicant fails one exam and passes the other, the applicant must contact the Board’s office and pay the necessary fees by the deadlines in order to retake any exam.

The minimum passing score on each exam is 75. Refer to for application instructions and information.

This practice examination will benefit those who are preparing for the NAPLEX by exhibiting the same look and feel as the actual licensure examination as well as providing a score estimate.
