Entrance Requirements

A personal interview and visit to the school is required of all prospective students. In addition, the student must:

  1. Be a citizen of the United States or hold a recognized visa.
  2. Be beyond the compulsory school age, and not attending a school of elementary or secondary level, unless it is established through contact with responsible parties that pursuit of the program would not be detrimental to his/her regular schoolwork. Must be 17 years of age at examination/licensure.
  3. Have a sufficient understanding of the English language, reading, writing, and speaking, which will be assessed during the entrance interview. The assessment of this requirement will be through a personal interview with the admissions personnel and completion and understanding of all documents by the prospective student.
  4. Have a high school diploma or GED certificate, or a state-authorized high school equivalent. Have evidence that verification of foreign student's high school diploma has been performed by an outside agency that is qualified to translate documents into English and confirm the academic equivalence to a high school diploma.  If the applicant does not have a high school diploma, GED, or state-authorized high school equivalent then he/she must successfully pass the Wonderlic Test Entrance Examination (WBST). The Wonderlic Test will be administered by an independent tester. In lieu of the WBST, if a student has met the United States Department of Education ATB requirements prior to July 1, 2012 at another institution, and can provide documentation of passing one of the following approved ATB tests: ASSET, CPAT, COMPASS, CELSA, CPT'S, DTLS, WBST, then he/she may be accepted into the program.
  5. Transfer students may be accepted after an admissions interview, a practical and theory examination, and an approved transcript is received from the other school. A student may enter the programs at the level he/she established by examination results. All transfer hour requirements must be met prior to enrollment. Students who possess a cosmetology or barber license and request credit for 750 cosmetology hours or 600 barber hours must present a copy of their barber/cosmetology license, and request this credit prior to enrollment. Transferred hours are treated as both completed and attempted hours in the determination of the student's pace of completion. Transfer students accepted into the school will be charged an Enrollment Fee (which may not exceed 10% or $150.00, whichever is less, of the total tuition of the program). Tuition for the part of the program he or she advanced will be adjusted for the advancement allowed. A permanent record is maintained in the student folder documenting this information.
  6. Students who withdraw prior to completion of the program and wish to re-enroll will return in the same Satisfactory Academic Progress status as at the time of withdrawal.
