TRANSFER BETWEEN PROGRAMS
The rules and regulations governing financial aid programs, a student cannot directly transfer to a different program after starting a school program. In order for the student to change his/her course of study, the student must withdraw from his/her current program. Any tuition refunds due will be computed and processed as described in the student catalog. The student must then enroll in the new course of study as any new student. Students are encouraged to thoroughly review his/her options before making any type of transfer. Most hours earned in one program do not transfer to another program, for example, if a nail technician student earns 200 hours in the Nail Technician Program, only 90 hours can be transferred to the Cosmetology Program.
Students wishing to be readmitted after withdrawing or being dropped from the program need to apply through the admissions office. Applications will be reviewed with the Lead Educator, Financial Aid Department, and Admissions Department. Students may not re-enroll until six months after the last date of attendance. Students accepted for re-enrollment will be charged a $100 registration fee to accompany their application. Tuition costs will be assessed as a transfer students at rate of $15.00/hour to complete the program. Financial Aid awarded for re-enrollment may not be used to pay previous balances owed. Balances must be paid or on a payment plan and have made six consecutive payments before re-enrollment.
