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.
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.
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
Top of the Line Barber College understands that life happens, so a grace period of 10% has been added to the calculated anticipated graduation date (contract end date) to allow students the opportunity to complete contracted hours. The grace period of 10% provides an allowance of approximately 37 days for full-time students and 21 days for part time students to complete the Barbering Program, without incurring any extra instructional charges (not to include transfer students). For transfer students, the grace period of 10% (calculated in the amount of days) will vary as it is based upon the amount of contracted training time at the time of enrollment. Once these allowed absences have been exhausted, and the student still has not completed the required training hours at the end of the contracted period, then he/she will be required to pay for extra instructional time for remaining training hours. Remaining 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 max time frame for completion of the program will not change under these circumstances.
