Licensure Application


As part of the process of getting licensed in the State of FL, a Verification of Field Practice Letter must be submitted to the Licensing Board from the FGCU MSW Program. The Application for licensure is at: ( In addition, Advanced Standing Program graduates are required to provide verification of courses waived upon admission.


To request this letter from the FGCU MSW Program, complete the attached Request Form (MS Word Document) and email it to Mary Hart ( The form is formatted to facilitate electronic completion and submission. The best way to do this is to download the form, fill in the applicable information, electronically sign it, save it for your records, and submit to the Coordinator as an email attachment. The form may also be submitted in person, via fax, or the US Post Office.


Each request will be acted upon within 1-2 weeks. The letter will be sent directly to the Board. When the letter is mailed to the Board, the graduates can expect to be notified via email along with an electronic copy of the letter. Graduates who would rather have a photocopy of the signed letter should provide a self-addressed stamped envelope along with their initial request; in which case, this will constitute notification.


Graduates who are applying for licensure to States other than FL and need similar types of verification letters should submit their requests to the Field Coordinator with as much information as possible regarding what is required. The same policies with regard to turnaround time and notification apply.


Questions regarding this procedure should be directed to Professor Lori Carroll at 239-590-7825 or
