The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy no longer accepts fingerprint cards. If you are applying for licensure as a pharmacy technician trainee, pharmacy technician, intern or pharmacist, you must now submit a valid Arizona fingerprint clearance card with your application.
If you have a valid Arizona fingerprint clearance card, submit a copy with your application.
If you do not have a valid Arizona fingerprint clearance card, you may wish obtain one before applying for licensure, as it may take 6 to 8 weeks or more to obtain a card and you have just 90 days to complete your application. To obtain an Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card contact the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS). You may contact DPS by calling 602.223.2279 or faxing your request to 602.223.2947. DPS office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The statutory reference for our agency is A.R.S. § 32-1904.
