SCHEDULE OF FEES
Approvals follow the two-year NJ Board of Social Work Examiners licensing cycle beginning September 1 of even-numbered years. Example: The current licensing cycle runs from September 1, 2012 - August 31, 2014. During this time, the approved course can be offered an unlimited number of times as long as there are no substantial changes in content, presenter or length of the program.
Your application fee is determined by a number of factors:
1) When in the licensing cycle your course will take place.
If your course will take place anytime within the 2nd Year of the Biennial licensing cycle, the fee is reduced because your approval will be for less than two years.
*** Please Note: Applications submitted after March 31st in the 2nd year of the licensing cycle will be charged the full two-year rate, as the approval will extend into the next two-year licensing cycle.
2) The number of applications you submit at one time.
There is a reduced fee for multiple submissions.
3) If you use a Social Worker Consultant.
While not required, there is a 20% discount for applicants who utilize a licensed social worker who is also a member of NASW. The individual must be licensed, currently practicing social work in a private or institutional setting and a member of NASW in good standing.
