Foreign Students:

 

The White Institute is approved by the Student and Exchange Visitors Program, (SEVIS), which is part of the United States Department of Homeland Security. Upon acceptance to our program, our Designated School Officer, (Afoue Ellison, a.ellison@wawhite.org) will complete the initial SEVIS forms and issue a signed I-20.

 

After receiving the Form I-20 from the Institute, the student applies to the United States Consulate or Embassy for the F-1 Visa.  Students must enroll and enter the country within 30 days of the program start date. If a student does not report within the 30 day period, their SEVIS record is cancelled.

 

An F1 student can maintain their status for as long as they continue to be enrolled in a full time educational program. For questions regarding CPT or OPT status or other questions regarding SEVIS eligibility, please contact Richard Herman, r.herman@wawhite.org

 

Applicants whose undergraduate and/or professional training was acquired outside of the United States must submit their educational credentials to the:

 

New York State Department of Education, Office of the Professionals, Division of Professional Licensing Services, Psychoanalytic Unit.
89 Washington Avenue
Albany New York, 12234-1000

 

The White Institute uses no other service for the purpose of certifying equivalence to American degree programs.
