Professional Development- ASWB Registry

The Social Work Registry

The Social Work Registry is a program of the Association of Social Work Boards, a nonprofit association that provides services for state, provincial and territorial social work licensing boards in the U.S. and Canada. The purpose of the Social Work Registry is to provide a repository for social workers’ credential information while serving as a
verification source for social work licensing boards.

By using the Registry, you will establish a permanent file containing primary source records relating to your social work career. At your request this information will be transmitted to any regulatory board to which you may apply for licensure during your social work career.

**Please note: This program operates independently of NASW-NC.  NASW-NC does not administer this program

How it Works

Your record will contain copies of the application materials enclosed, as well as original copies of your education transcripts, your social work examination scores, and verification of any clinical supervision you have received. In addition, when a summary of your record is prepared for a licensing board, ASWB will check your identifying information against its Disciplinary Action Reporting System (DARS) databank and provide that information to the board.

The Registry will verify the following categories of information and obtain pertinent credentials directly from the
source:

  • Education
  • Social work examination results
  • Licensing history
  • Clinical supervision (if applicable)
  • Disciplinary actions reported to DARS

In addition, the registry will store the following unverified information provided by you:

  • Continuing education courses completed
  • References
  • Employment history
