Sending your exam results to another state or province

How it works

  1. Contact the state licensing board to apply for a license. Use the ASWB database to find contact information for the state or province.
  2. Request a score transfer from ASWB.
  3. ASWB will send the regulatory board your score within 7 to 10 business days.
