Preparing for your Pharmacist License

If you are an upcoming graduate from Samford or Auburn:

  1. Go to the NABP website and download the Candidate Registration Bulletin.  This bulletin will tell you how to create your profile on the NABP website and how to register for the NAPLEX and MPJE.  Register for each of these tests.
  2. Complete the online pharmacist application on our website. Select “Samford/Auburn graduate” when filling out the application. You will need to upload your birth certificate (or US passport if not born in the United States), driver’s license, and college affidavit. The college affidavit can be found on our website under Pharmacist’s Forms. It may be sent via mail or email by either your school of pharmacy or yourself directly (as long as it has the seal of your school). If you plan to work in a pharmacy that handles controlled substances, you will also need to pay $100 for your controlled substance registration. It is required to have this if you work with controlled substances.
  3. Once we receive everything above and you graduate, the Board will send a notice to NABP stating that you are approved for testing (aka grant you eligibility).  NABP will then send you an Authorization to Test (ATT) number.  With the ATT, you may contact the testing company and set up a time for your exams. 
  4. Board members will come to your pharmacy school to interview the P4 class as a whole. So, when you have passed both tests and have met with the Board, we will mail your license to you. 

If you are an upcoming graduate from an out-of-state pharmacy school:

  1. Go to the NABP website and download the Candidate Registration Bulletin.  This bulletin will tell you how to create your profile on the NABP website and how to register for the NAPLEX and MPJE. 
    • If you plan for Alabama to be your primary license, register for the NAPLEX plus MPJE. If you don’t plan for Alabama to be your primary license, only register for the MPJE.
  2. Complete the online pharmacist application on our website. Select “Out-of-State/Score Transfer” when filling out the application.
    • You will need to upload your birth certificate (or US passport if not born in the United States), driver’s license, and college affidavit.
    • The college affidavit can be found on our website under Pharmacist’s Forms. It may be sent via mail or email by either your school of pharmacy or yourself directly (as long as it has the seal of your school).
    • If you have not taken your NAPLEX yet but our application is requiring you to put a score down, just put N/A in the NAPLEX field. We will edit that on our end once you actually take your exam.
    • If you plan to work in a pharmacy that handles controlled substances, you will also need to pay $100 for your controlled substance registration. It is required to have this if you work with controlled substances.
  3. Once we receive everything above and you graduate, the Board will send a notice to NABP stating that you are approved for testing (aka grant you eligibility).  NABP will then send you an Authorization to Test (ATT) number.  With the ATT, you may contact the testing company and set up a time for your NAPLEX and/or MPJE exam(s). 
  4. Once you have passed your exam(s), we will send you the date and time for your interview. 
  5. When you have passed your exam(s) and have met with the Board, we will mail your license to you.
