Greencard Procedure

Green Card International Student


I’m an international student studying in Australia. I have received a scholarship to continue my undergraduate studies in Psychology, Criminology, and Justice in the US. I will, therefore, transfer to the US this fall. I’m hoping to stay on and continue with Masters and Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology. My ultimate goal is to become a Forensic Psychologist in the states. My question is, is this possible? Will pursuing a Ph.D. in the states in the field of Forensic Psychology help me obtain licensure and green card in order to stay on and practice? If so, what is the green card procedure?

Thank you.
