Enrollment Process

Complete Enrollment Application

An applicant must obtain an enrollment application, either in person or via the school’s website.

The enrollment application consists of three sections. The first section is the actual application; this is where the applicant will provide identifying information such as their name, DOB, SSN. It is also where the applicant will decide which class section they wish to enroll in, full-time or part-time.

The second section of the application is an essay question. Applicants’ response must be at least one (1) paragraph in length.

The third and final section is a letter of recommendation that must be completed by an individual of the applicants choosing.

  • Application Fee: Applicants must submit a non-refundable application fee of $75.00.

    • Fee Wavier: Students who identify as having a hardship or are currently negatively impacted by socio- economic tragedies, will be given the opportunity to apply for a waiver by submitting a formal request in writing to the Campus President.

    • All requests for waivers will be kept confidential and issued on a need basis only.

  • Submission of Application Fee or Fee Waiver: The non-refundable application fee or the fee waiver is due at the time of submitting the enrollment application or can be submitted at the time of signing of the enrollment contract.

  • Required Enrollment Eligibility Documentation:  Applicants must submit all required documentation along with the enrollment application to establish their eligibility for enrollment.

The application, the application fee or fee waiver, and the required documentation must be submitted in person to an official in the Admissions Office.  An admissions official will review the application packet and determine if the student's enrollment will be approved or denied.

Complete Student Barber Permit Application

Applicants must complete an application for a Student Barber Permit; the permit is issued by the SC Board of Barber Examiners, the state licensing agency.

The permit and the number attached to it is used by school officials to record and report a student’s training hours completed each month.

The application may be obtained from school officials or directly from the SC Board of Barber Examiners’ website. The link for the website is:

  • Application Fee: The SC Board of Barber Examiners requires a $35.00 non-refundable application fee be submitted with all student barber permit applications.  No fee waivers are available.

The application, the application fee or fee waiver, and the required documentation must be submitted in person to an official in the Admissions Office. The permit application will then be submitted to the SC Board of Barber Examiners for processing.

An applicant's enrollment is contingent upon the issuance of a student barber permit by the SC Board of Barber Examiners.  If the Board declines to issue a permit, then a student's application for enrollment will be denied.

Negotiate Payment Terms

Once an applicant has been admitted into the program, then he/she must make suitable arrangements to pay their outstanding tuition bill. The following payment terms are available:

  1. Submit the entire payment at time of enrollment.

  2. Submit application fee at time of signing the enrollment agreement and pay the remaining balance before classes begin by financing remaining balance through private lender.

  3. Apply for Title IV Federal Aid and use benefits awarded to pay tuition and set up a school approved payment plan to cover remaining balance (if applicable).

  4. Apply Veteran’s Education & Training Benefits toward tuition and set up school approved payment plan to cover remaining balance (if applicable).
