License renewal fees vary based on the license being renewed and cover 24 months. LSW, LGSW, LISW, and LICSW licenses are renewed for $110, $195, $295, and $325 respectively. All licenses may be renewed with a late fee within 60 days of their expiration. The late fee is a quarter of the 24-month renewal fee.

Licenses expire on your birth month, two calendar years from the date it is first issued. All licensees are to document at least 40 continuing education hours on their renewal form. Independent study can cover 15 hours out of the required 40. There must be 2 hours on ethics. For LICSW license holders, 24 of the 40 hours must have been completed in clinical topics.

You can apply for renewal online or send a completed copy of a downloaded copy of the form.
