NABP’s NAPLEX score transfer program allows you to transfer your NAPLEX score to additional jurisdictions in which you wish to obtain a license to practice pharmacy. Participating in the score transfer program will allow your score to be applied to the requirements of the jurisdiction to which you transfer the score. Licensure decisions are made at the sole discretion of the boards of pharmacy.
The NAPLEX score transfer program differs significantly from NABP’s e-LTP, which is a reciprocity service that NABP provides for licensed pharmacists. You may only apply for license transfer through e-LTP if you are already licensed in another jurisdiction. Licenses awarded through license transfer are considered a license by licensure transfer.
Please note that the validity period of a score transfer varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Currently, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands participate in the NAPLEX score transfer program. You are encouraged to contact the board where your score was transferred for additional information, including current board fees and updated participation information. Some jurisdictions may require additional payment for examination materials in addition to the score transfer fees.
You have 2 opportunities to purchase a score transfer online via your e-Profile:
The NAPLEX score transfer administrative fee charged by NABP is $75 per jurisdiction. Additional fees for transfers to certain jurisdictions may apply. Refer to your jurisdiction for information regarding additional fees.
Score transfers will be processed whether you pass or fail the NAPLEX. If you retake the exam and wish to transfer your score again, you must purchase another transfer request. Score transfers pertain to NAPLEX results only. Because the MPJE is unique to the state/jurisdiction in which you seek licensure, it is not possible to transfer your MPJE results to another jurisdiction.
If you request a score transfer, you must complete all the examination requirements as determined by your primary jurisdiction for licensure, including any locally administered examinations (which may require you to travel to the score transfer jurisdiction). Primary jurisdictions can refuse to allow your score to be transferred if you do not complete your examination requirements.
You should contact the relevant board of pharmacy before applying for a score transfer to make sure you understand the jurisdiction’s licensure requirements.
Before your exam, you may choose to change your score transfer jurisdiction at no additional cost by sending a request to CompAssess@nabp.pharmacy. Your request should include:
You may not request a change of jurisdiction after you take the examination.
