Follow the steps to earn your Indiana Social Work License:

You must have at least a master's degree in Social Work (MSW) from an accredited school in order to become a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana.

Once the Board has approved your application, you will receive information about registration and schedules for the Association of Social Work Boards clinical level exam. From the time you are approved to take the exam and 180 days following, the Board will issue you a temporary social work license.
