Social Work Licensure

Upon graduation from the Social Work program, alumni may be eligible for social work licensure in Alabama and other states. Licensing regulations and categories vary considerably across states and specific rules may have to be consulted. To learn about licensing requirements in other states and jurisdictions, please visit the Association of Social Work Boards website.

In Alabama, graduates may be eligible for a social work license as a LBSW. Licensing requires submission of an application, verification of information such as transcripts, and a passing grade on a licensing examination. For more specific information consult the Alabama State Board of Social Work Examiners.
