An international applicant, that is, neither a citizen nor a permanent resident of the U.S., must meet our regular admission requirements, as well as those listed below.
If written in a foreign language, all transcripts and other documents must be accompanied by an official English translation and certification of equivalency to the American education system. Bachelor degrees that are three years in length will not be recognized as equivalent to a U.S. four-year bachelor degree by William James College. You can have both, the translation and equivalence certified by the World Education Service (WES). For detailed information visit www.wes.org.
Applicants who are non-native speakers of English and have not taken the General Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Please note: the GRE is required of all applicants to the Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology PsyD Program. Applicants to other programs are encouraged to submit GRE scores to enhance their application.
Successful completion of all requirements towards the degree which you seek to pursue will include your completion of one or more paid internships. To undertake paid internships, students are required to demonstrate to employers they are authorized to work in the U.S. Students who are unable to do so may be unable to complete all requirements for their degree program.
Please be aware that online and blended (hybrid) programs do NOT support Student visas.
Letter(s) of recommendation are required from people who are able to attest to your personal qualities, such as: professional; academic; intellectual; motivational; interpersonal; and emotional. References should not be provided by family members, friends, or others who don't know you in either a professional or academic context.
The electronic recommendation form is required and although a supplemental letter is optional it is strongly recommended. Both, the recommendation form and letter must be submitted electronically through your online application account.
Please request an official academic transcript from each undergraduate and graduate institution that you have attended. Transcripts should be sent directly to William James College from the issuing registrar's office. We recommend that you request these documents as soon as you decide to apply for admission and to allow at least ten business days for the issuing registrar to process your request. If you have completed a semester abroad and these corresponding courses do not appear on your home institution's transcript with a letter grade, then you must provide a separate transcript for this period of study.
All transcripts must be addressed to:
William James College
