Connecticut Social Work Licensure

How to become a Social Worker in Connecticut

Below are basic guidelines for those wishing to earn their social work licensure in Connecticut. Most procedures and requirements remain constant over the years; however, it is wise to contact the Connecticut Board of Clinical Social Work Licensure at (860) 509-8386 to make sure you are on the right track.

Follow the steps to earn your Connecticut Social Work License:

Step One:

To become a licensed clinical social worker in Connecticut, you will need to receive your masters or doctorate degree in Social Work from an accredited school.

Request information from schools offering social work degree programs or request information from additional psychology schools and colleges in Connecticut.

Step Two:

Once you have received your degree, you will then need to complete 3000 hours of post-masters social work experience. At least 100 of these hours need to be supervised by a licensed social worker.

More information about work experience can be found on the Connecticut Department of Public Health website.

Step Three:

After the completion of work experience, you will need to download and submit the Connecticut Social Work Licensure application.

The social work license application and additional necessary forms are available on the Connecticut Department of Public Health website.

Step Four:

When your application is approved, you will be eligible to take the Association of Social Work Boards exam.

Details about the examination, including a study guide, can be found on the ASWB website.

This process can take some time, so being aware of deadlines and keeping your Connecticut Social Worker license active is important.
