In order to practice social work in Maryland or to refer to oneself as a social worker, an individual must be licensed by the
Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners.
Hello, The Board recognizes the anxiety that comes along with the application process. We make every attempt to inform applicants of the status of their application within two weeks of receipt of all documents needed. Then we process the applications as quickly as possible. Please remember that the Board has up to 60 days to inform applicants of their status. If you have not heard from the Board within the time frame allotted by law please contact the Board supervisor, Tyrone Willoughby Jr LCSW-C.
You will need your Application ID which is sent to the email address on the application.
