Social Work Licensing Exam Prep

Offering licensing exam prep for your social work license in New York.

New York State was among the first states to regulate the social work profession, enacting its certification law in 1962. In September 2004, that law was replaced by a new statute that created two licensed social work titles in New York State, the licensed master social worker (LMSW) and the licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). 

Upon completion of the MSW, Adelphi graduates are eligible to apply for licensure as a licensed master social worker (LMSW).
