Transfer of credit from another school

The school will credit the student up to 70 % of hours obtained in an accredited Barber Course. Certified documentation from the previous school will be needed in order to take advantage of this. An “official copy of the transcript” must be furnished by the student to the school. It must contain hours earned and grades received for their previous course.

The school shall give written and practical tests to verify the students’ ability. The school shall ultimately determine the number of hours granted to the student.

The Barber program runs consecutively throughout the year. We start our Barbering program every other month: January, March, May, July, September (FT & PT) and November. Please contact admissions for exact dates.
