RENEWAL APPLICATION
Renewal applications are mailed at least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration date.  This application is mailed to your address of record with the Board.  The Board has no way of knowing whether or not the application reaches its destination; therefore, when it has been mailed, the duty of the Board has been performed. Please allow 10-14 business days to receive your application. If you do not receive your renewal application, please email our office at
pla4@pla.IN.gov and we can e-mail you a renewal application to be printed and completed.

In order for your pharmacist intern registration to be renewed, you must submit the following to the address listed on the renewal application: 

  1. Completed renewal application:  all questions must be answered, the form must be signed and dated, your current e-mail address is listed and, if applicable, a change of address or e-mail address; AND

DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL INTERN RENEWALS

Current Pharmacy Students Enrolled in an ACPE Accredited Pharmacy Program:  You are required to submit official transcripts from your ACPE accredited school of pharmacy with your registration renewal application.  The official transcripts must verify your active/current enrollment in the spring 2011 semester or corresponding quarter by indicating "currently enrolled", "work in progress", etc., for your currently enrolled semester or quarter.  An official transcript indicating only the previous semester or quarter completed will not be accepted as it does not verify that current enrollment.

Foreign Pharmacy Graduates:  You are required to submit a notarized copy of your Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Examination Committee (FPGEC) Certificate.
