WISR no longer routinely prints a hard copy catalogue. All current, relevant information about WISR is available on this website. Furthermore, this website will be updated regularly, and especially whenever there are any major, substantive changes in WISR’s academic offerings, degree requirements and procedures, admissions requirements and procedures, and any other important new information, such as State-mandated disclosures.

For those who would like to view much of this website’s content in a catalogue-type format, you may access a file of our online catalog by clicking here.

Furthermore, anyone who would like a hard copy of that electronic catalogue may request it, by sending a check for $10 and a snail mail letter to:  2930 Shattuck Ave., Suite 300, Berkeley, CA  94705.   The $10 is needed to cover the cost of printing and postage.  Any person wishing to enroll may request a free, hard copy of the catalog, as well.

Anyone having questions about WISR, or wishing to discuss matters pertaining to their possible interest in one of WISR’s programs, is strongly encouraged to call us at (510) 655-2830 (vm), or e-mail us at mail@wisr.edu –to schedule a meeting or phone conference to discuss in depth with us your questions and WISR’s potential for helping you to achieve your goals.

This catalog was updated March 1, 2021, and will be in force and accurate until  December 31, 2021 or revised sooner if there are any substantive changes.
