Apply for preapproval through ASWB to get a social work license in Texas that requires taking one of the social work licensing exams.
ASWB is accepting exam preapproval applications to take a social work licensing exam to get a license in Texas.
Exam preapproval application fee: $60
The application fee is nonrefundable. Approval to take the exam is valid for one year.
This exam preapproval process does not completely replace the application for licensure to the Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council, but we will verify your eligibility to take the exam. Once your exam is complete, we will provide your information and exam results to the Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council.
- If you are applying for licensure by endorsement—meaning you have already taken the exam and have a license in another state or province—you must contact the Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council directly.
- If you started the application process for your Texas license before November 1, 2020, you must continue that application process rather than beginning a new one with ASWB.
