License Application Process
To begin the licensure application process, you must submit a completed application form, required supporting documents and an appropriate fee. The IDFPR and DOI maintain detailed licensure requirements for each profession, and the Acts and Rules for each profession contain the licensure requirements.
The IDFPR licensing and testing division processes the application, reviews the applicant’s history and, if necessary, assembles a professional licensing board or committee to review the application more closely. Along with reviewing the application, the licensing and testing division may also administer appropriate tests and, if the applicant meets all necessary requirements, it will issue a license to the applicant.

Pharmacist Application Denied to Russian Woman – The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) denied a Russian woman’s application to become a licensed pharmacist. We obtained documents and sworn statements from her pharmacy school in Russia, and represented the woman in a formal administrative hearing at the IDFPR. The IDFPR administrative law judge (ALJ) upheld the denial of her license application. We appealed the ALJ’s ruling to the circuit court and won. The circuit court reversed and vacated the ALJ’s decision, and the court allowed the person to become licensed. As a result, this was the first time that a graduate of a Russian pharmacy school was granted a pharmacist license in Illinois.
