On May 2, 2019 the governor of Indiana signed into law a bill (Senate Bill 527) that provides for the Behavioral Health and Human Services Licensing Board effective July 1, 2019 to issue permits to practice social work. The law explicitly provides that individuals holding a bachelor's degree in social work from “a foreign school that has a program of study that is approved by the Foreign Equivalency Determination Service of the Council on Social Work Education” will meet the same qualification as those who have received such a degree from “an eligible postsecondary educational institution that is accredited or approved for candidacy by the Council on Social Work Education or approved by the behavioral health and human services licensing board.”
