Agency Forms

Online Application

Applicants who are requesting licensure transfer from another state must complete the application, affidavit of legal status, and must submit to the background check process (as noted above). In addition to those three items, applicants must complete the verification licensure form and request an ASWB score transfer request as applicable.

Verification of Licensure (As part of the online application process, we need verification of licensure for all states you are currently licensed in or have been previously licensed in. You may use this form to request verification from your current/previous state's of licensure, or you may print your verification from your state's website and upload it into the application portal.)

ASWB Score Transfer Request (Once the request is submitted to the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), ASWB will forward the score transfer directly to the Oklahoma State Board of Licensed Social Workers.)

In Oklahoma, a general business license or fee is not required.

The regulating business in the state (issuing licenses, permits, etc.) is done directly by the specific state agencies or sources designated to do so.

All applicants are required to submit an Affidavit of Legal Status verifying U.S. citizenship OR qualified alien status.

Applicants are required to submit to a background check.

The results of the background checks will come directly to the Board Office from IdentoGO. You do not need to upload any documents once your background check process is completed.

If you have previously completed a background check for a previous application, you DO NOT need to submit to another background check.

Supervision Forms

To begin the process of establishing a supervision contract, you must hold licensure at the LSWA or LMSW level. Once licensed at either level, you may complete and submit Supervision Contract Form 201.

When your contract is approved, you will receive an email notification of the approved contract with the approval letter informing you of your effective start date.

If you are experiencing difficulty defining the "focus of supervision" for page two of the contract, please refer to the following examples. These examples should assist in helping you determine the area of focus for your supervisory experience.
