Licensure

The DiNitto Center for Career Services has information on social work licensure for the state of Texas. If you would like to check out a study guide or make an appointment to take a practice licensure exam please contact the center. For more information about the process of social work licensure in Texas, download this step-by-step guide (pdf).

Please read:
  • Our social work licensing exam study guides are very popular in late spring and summer. When a study guide becomes available, we will contact you twice, once by phone and once by email. We ask that you please pick up the guide within 48 hours of being notified. If you fail to pick up the guide within this time frame, your name will be placed at the bottom of the list, and you may have to wait several weeks before it is available again.
