  • The process to become licensed in the state of Georgia begins by requesting the appropriate information from the State Board of Pharmacy. Both reciprocating and new pharmacy licensees are to take the Georgia version of the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam (MPJE). In addition, the new licensees and reciprocating licensees are required to take the Georgia Practical Exam; the Practice Exam is traditionally administered in June and August each year.
