CEU Application Form and Information

Please note: We cannot accept applications via email.  Please fax or mail your application to the address listed in the application.

To access the application itself, please scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Information on Obtaining NASW Continuing Education Approval:

1. The course or event should, when possible, be approved PRIOR to the event. Workshop or conference sponsors may advertise that the event offers continuing education credit for social workers only after approval is given by NASW. Sponsors may indicate that CEU's are pending with the Utah Chapter of NASW if the application has been submitted but has not yet been reviewed.

2. Read the Guidelines for Continuing Education Approval and complete the application below.  This can be downloaded as a PDF or Word file.

3. Submit the application, any needed supporting documentation, and payment to (payment may also be submitted on the website): 

UT-NASW Continuing Education Committee
University of Utah College of Social Work
395 S. 1500 E.#229
Salt Lake City, UT  84112

4. Applications must be received in the office by the 3rd Wednesday of the month in order to be reviewed at that month's meeting. Applications will be accepted via fax or US mail.  If you must email, please call us to make sure your email was received.  Decision letters are emailed following the committee's meeting, which is typically held on the 4th Wednesday of each month. Approved continuing education events will be posted online on the "Approved CEUs" page at no extra cost.  In months when a holiday falls on or around the 4th Wednesday, the committee may reschedule to a different day of the month.

If you need to have your event reviewed outside of the monthly committee meeting, an expedited review may be initiated for an addition $25 fee. Please indicate on your application that you wish to have it expedited and, if paying online, add the expedited review fee to your normal fee selection when checking out. If you wish to have it approved for CEUs as an online course or webinar, there is an additional $10/$15 fee, which can also be added at checkout.

5. Once your event is approved, you are eligible to purchase NASW, Utah Chapter member mailing labels to promote your event.

Disclaimer: Continuing education (CEU) approval through NASW should not be construed as an endorsement of the content or treatment modality contained in a training. The NASW Continuing Education Committee grants approval based on the information provided to it by workshop sponsors and cannot be in attendance at all events it has approved to ensure that the information presented is as described in the applications. CEU approval is based on adherence to the NASW Code of Ethics and the criteria for approval established by NASW in conjunction with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) as dictated by the Social Work Licensing Act. If you attend an NASW-approved training and feel that the Code of Ethics or NASW/DOPL criteria were in some way violated, please contact the NASW office at (801) 583-8855 to discuss the situation.
