How to become a Social Worker in Indiana

Below are basic guidelines for those wishing to earn their social work licensure in Indiana. Most procedures and requirements remain constant over the years; however, it is wise to contact the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency at (317) 234-2064 to make sure you are on the right track.

Follow the steps to earn your Indiana Social Work License:

Step One:

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.

Request information from schools offering social work degree programs.

Step Two:

Three years or 4500 hours of supervised experience is required. At least 2 of the 3 years need to be completed after receiving your masters degree. All supervision needs to be by a qualified supervisor and have at least 4 hours of face to face time each month.

The Statutes and Rules have more details on hours and supervision which can be found on the following website.

Step Three:

After completing the required hours for Indiana social work licensure, you will need to download and submit an application to the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency along with all other forms that are needed.

You may download the Indiana social work licensure application here.

Step Four:

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.

More information on the examination can be found on the following ASWB website.

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