Reciprocity Agreement

Holders of valid LSW, LMSW, or LCSW licenses from other states can apply for such licenses by reciprocity in Mississippi provided that they were issued these licenses in the said state after fulfilling identical or higher requirements to those that operate in Mississippi. You must have taken an ASWB recommended examination that correlates with the level of licensure you are seeking.

Applicants are to fill out an Initial application for the appropriate licenses and send it in with other documents specified in the checklist for reciprocity applications for the license in view. The license fees are the same as have been covered in previous sections.
