New License Renewal System Coming
The Oregon Board of Licensed Social Workers is upgrading our online licensing system. This will impact all renewals, applications, and existing license accessibility.
Watch for messages from the BLSW with instructions for renewals and applications using the new system beginning mid-September.
As you can see the Oregon Board of Licensed Social Workers has conformed to other state agencies in our new web design. If you do not see what you used to, or cannot find what you need, let us know. We are working hard to help you navigate our website and to be able to get the information you need.
ASWB Early Exam Authorizations
ASWB has changed their policies, which no longer allow the Board of Licensed Social Workers to approve ASWB clinical exams prior to being regulated for at least 24 months. We will maintain our 75 hours minimum, but will also require the CSWA to have been certified to practice for 2 years (24 months).
Email Address Changes
Board of Licensed Social Workers has changed email domains. All agency email addresses have changed from @state.or.us to @oregon.gov. Please be sure to accept our new email addresses in order to ensure all emails are received.
