About the Registry:
The Social Work Registry provides a repository for social workers'
credential information while serving as a verification source for social
work licensing boards.
The Registry lets you establish a permanent file containing primary source
records important to your social work career. At your request, this information
can be transmitted to any regulatory board to which you may apply for licensure.
How it works:
Your record will contain copies of your detailed application
materials, as well as original copies of your education transcripts,
your social work examination scores, and verification of any clinical
supervision you have received. In addition, when a summary of your
record is prepared for a licensing board, ASWB will check your identifying
information against ASWB's Public Protection Database (PPD) and provide that information to the board as well.
Registry will verify the following categories of information:
- Social work examination results
- Licensing history
- Clinical supervision (if applicable)
- Disciplinary actions reported to ASWB's Public Protection Database (PPD)
In addition, the registry will store the following unverified information
provided by you:
- Continuing education courses completed
- Employment history
- Other professional credentials (ACSW, BCD, QCSW, etc.)
Verification fees are due before we process your registry application.
The annual maintenance/renewal fee will be due one year after your application
is verified. All verification fees include one report during the first
year and the annual maintenance/renewal fee includes one report per year.
