New Process for the California Social Work Licensing Exam

Beginning January 1, 2016, the path to licensure now includes the California Law and Ethics Exam and the Clinical Level Exam. If you have taken and passed the Standard Written Exam (prior to 1/1/2016), you do not need to take the California Law and Ethics Exam. If you are a new intern or have not passed the Standard Written Exam, you must apply for and take the California Law and Ethics Exam.

Once you have passed the California Law and Ethics Exam and have had your hours approved, you may then apply for and take the Clinical Level Exam.
