ATTENTION: the Board of Examiners for Social Worker (BESW) has modified its business operations. 

As of June 1st, the BESW office is open Monday through Thursday (except holidays) from 9:00am to 4:00pm.  Staff is available during office hours by phone, email and virtually.  You are welcome to drop off documents at the office, but, in-person meetings are available on an appointment-only basis.

Online Renewals and Applications

We encourage you to access our services using remote methods whenever possible.  To prevent unnecessary trips to its office, BESW is now offering online license renewals and online applications for new licenses.  If you are unable to complete your business remotely, please know that in-person assistance is available, but you may have a longer than typical wait time for an appointment. 

Social Distancing

So that everyone can remain safe, please know that BESW continues to practice social distancing.
