Transfer Student Tuition

Tuition charges for transfer students are based upon the number of training hours the transfer student is seeking to complete at our school.  Transfer students are charged an hourly rate for any training hours required as opposed to a flat tuition rate.  Please note that any transfer student must enroll in a minimum of 500 clock hours.  Additionally, transfer students are still responsible for paying all required fees at the time of enrollment.

Transfer Student Hourly Tuition Rate = $11.67/training hour required (500 Hour Minimum)

Re-Entry Student Tuition
If a student, who previously withdrew from the barbering program wishes to re-enroll, then the following conditions apply.

  1. If a student chooses to re-enroll within ninety (90) days of their official withdrawal date, then said student is eligible to re-enroll under their original enrollment contract.

  2. If a student chooses to re-enroll more than ninety (90) days after their official withdrawal date, then said student must reapply for admission and, if accepted, sign a new enrollment contract.  In such cases, re-entry students will be charged the currently hourly tuition rate ($11.67/clock hour) for any training hours required.

Enrollment Contract Expiration & Additional Training Hours

It is not realistic to expect to receive an education for free.  The school has reserved space, equipment, and licensed instructors for each student.  A grace period of approximately twenty-five percent has been added to the calculated completion date for each program. If a student has not completed the required training hours at the end of the contracted period, then he/she will be required to pay for additional instructional time to complete any remaining training hours.

If a student does not earn all required training hours within the contracted period, additional training hours will be billed at the rate of $250 per week, or any part thereof, payable in advance, until completion. Students will not be allowed to clock in until applicable weekly payments are made. Please note that the date of the maximum time frame for completion of the program will not change under these circumstances.
