All pharmacy licensure boards recognize the Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from an Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education (ACPE) accredited College of Pharmacy as fulfilling the academic requirements for pharmacist licensure. The ACPE maintains national accreditation standards for Colleges of Pharmacy. The University of North Texas System College of Pharmacy is an ACPE accredited College of Pharmacy.

All pharmacy licensure boards recognize the North American Pharmacy Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) as a standardized licensure exam for pharmacist licensure. Additionally, each state may have different licensure requirements including a state specific pharmacy law exam (refer to each state’s board of pharmacy website for state specific information).  Forty-nine pharmacy licensure boards require passing the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) as component of licensure. Arkansas, California, Idaho, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not utilize the MPJE for their law examination.
