Licensure

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 School Psychology MA/CAGS 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 Malory Reynolds, Department Coordinator, School Psychology Department, at Malory_Reynolds@williamjames.edu, who will direct you to the appropriate person to answer your question.

For your reference, below are links to the professional licensing agency in all states.
