Applying to Sit for the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Exams

The Board of Social Work Examiners must approve you to sit for the examination for licensure as a social worker in Delaware. The three levels of ASWB exams are:

  • Bachelors Level
  • Masters Level
  • Clinical Level

To apply to take the required exam(s), you must first create a DELPROS user account.  Go to the DELPROS online portal, and then click on Apply/Manage a License and Service Requests. If you:

  • are already an existing user, log in with your email address and password under the existing user section.
  • have not yet created a DELPROS user account, click on REGISTER.

After creating your user account or logging into the DELPROS online portal, you may begin your application for licensure to take the required exam(s).

Registering for the ASWB Exam

You must register for the exam before your application expires to allow adequate time to schedule a testing appointment. Your application, once submitted and paid for, is valid for two years from the date of submission. You will be required to complete a new online application if your application expires.

Register online at ASWB Online Exam Registration. For more information regarding the examination process, such as testing procedures and additional ways of registering, refer to the ASWB Candidate Handbook at

Re-Taking the ASWB Exam

You have two years from the date of your submitted application in DELPROS to pass the exam. You will be required to submit a new online application if your application expires.

If you fail the exam, you may re-take it every 90 days until you pass. You must register each time with ASWB and pay the full examination fee.

After Passing the ASWB Exam

After you take and pass the exam, allow up to two weeks for the Board office to receive your official examination score. Once the Board office receives your passing score and validates that you have met all requirements for licensure, your license will be issued.

You will receive an email notification stating your license has been issued with additional details about license renewal and/or continuing education requirements.
