How to Transfer Beauty Schools: What You Need to Know
Posted on February 8, 2017 by Oozle Media
Whether you are transferring beauty schools because you recently moved to a new place or because a school closed its doors, you are probably wondering what happens next. We understand how stressful it can be to transfer schools, so we are here to help.
We want to extend a helping hand to any student who is considering transferring or already in the process in their efforts to get their education back on track.
Get in Touch
Don’t be afraid to reach out to us, we would love to hear from you! The first step is to make contact with us, either by phone or by website. You are also more than welcome to stop by our campus, in person. Our admissions office would be happy to answer your questions and assist you in scheduling a tour of our school.
One of the most stressful things when changing schools is the financials, but we don’t want you to stress too much. The federal financial aid programs available to International College of Cosmetology students include Pell Grants and FSEOG Grants. If you have a FAFSA, go into your application and add our school code (041456). From there, make an appointment with one of our financial advisors, and they will assist you with a personal and customized experience while helping you through the whole process.
Because financial aid is specific to each individual student and their situation, it’s important to get a personal meeting scheduled with one of our friendly financial aid advisors to discuss your options. This is the best way to ensure that you have your financial solutions set and you are ready to go again.
Equipment & Tools
We will evaluate the kit and the tools that you already have. We are confident that what you have will be compatible with what we use, too!
PRO TIP: Be Sure to Check for a School’s Accreditation
When transferring schools, accreditation is something that should be at the top of any requirement list! International College of Cosmetology is accredited by Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) and proudly accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences (NACCAS), which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Accreditation.
What is Accreditation?
According to the U.S. Department of Education, accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.
Why is accreditation important?
Sources acknowledge that accreditation is the tool used to monitor, assess, and evaluate the standards and quality of the education a student receives at a college, university, or other institution of higher learning. Because of the process of accreditation, students, returning students, and families can trust that the education they are paying for is valuable and worthwhile.
It’s important to note thatwhile nationally accredited institutions will usually accept credit from regionally or nationally accredited institutions, regionally accredited schools often do not accept credit from nationally accredited institutions.
Starting Class & Choosing a Schedule
At ICOC, we know that life can be hectic, so that is why we offer flexible schedules. We have frequently starting full time and part time classes available. We require you must attend school at least 16 hours per week for the part time schedule and 32 hours per week for the full time schedule.
