Addictions Certifications and Licensure by State

Federal regulations require William James College to disclose whether its programs meet the educational requirements for professional licensure in every state and U.S. territory. All William James College professional licensure programs meet the educational requirements for licensing in Massachusetts.

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling MA program meets the requirements for licensure in the states indicated below. We have also identified states in which the WJC program does not meet the academic program licensure requirements and those where a determination has yet to be made.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ana Bueso, Department Coordinator, Counseling and Behavioral Health Department, at, who will direct you to the appropriate person to answer your question.
