School Social Work Endorsement

To be endorsed as a School Social Worker in Idaho:

Idaho no longer requires the Institutional Recommendation or the school social work course.  All that is needed for the Idaho School Social Worker Certificate is an MSW and current, valid master’s level social work license issued by the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses. Here are the requirements listed on the Dept of Ed’s Certificate for Pupil Service Staff page to become a Certified School Social Worker:

  • Official Transcript with Master’s in Social Work
  • Copy of Idaho Master’s Level Social Worker License issued by the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses
Please note that school social worker requirements vary by state.

What if I need to take a school social work course?

If you need to take a school social work course:

  • Boise State typically offers this course online each semester.
  • Please check Boise State’s spring schedules for on campus classes offered.
