At present we are doing Distance Learning Classes (online classes) per SC State Board of Cosmetology Directions as released on April 9, 2020.
We have received additional guidance as of May 18 from both DOE and NACCAS for hybrid format of education (DL & some Brick& Mortar). We are awaiting any change or approval for this educational format from the Governor’s office/SC State Board of Cosmetology in order to partially reopen on site classes.
At this time we will continue online distance learning throughout the month of May.
Strand College will update this information as we receive this approval for hybrid education for the safety of our staff, students, and the public of SC during this Covid-19 Pandemic.
