NEWARK – The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has proposed amendments to regulations regarding education requirements for psychologists who earn degrees outside of the United States.
N.J.A.C. 13:42-2.4 requires an applicant for licensure as a psychologist who completes an education in another country to submit an evaluation of that education performed by World Education Services, Inc. (WES) or an entity that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. WES has recently informed the Board of Psychological Examiners that it will no longer review psychology degrees completed in other countries. The proposed amendments delete references to WES from N.J.A.C. 13:42-2.4.
The proposed amendments, and information on how to submit a comment by May 4, 2018, can be viewed here.
