The transfer process

How to make the move

Effective September 1st, 2020 Strand College of Hair Design does not accept transfer students unless the institution has been permanently shut down, or the program of choice has been permanently discontinued. Qualifying applicants wanting to transfer and receive credit hours from another cosmetology, esthetics, or massage college to Strand College of Hair Design must submit an official hour and grade transcript from the previous school attended. Appropriate practical and theory tests will be given to the applicant in accordance to the transcript received. The President, Admissions Representative, and/or Educational Director will determine the test and review the results of the test along with the grades and hour transcript from the previous school attended. Admissions will inform applicant of hours that will be transferable to Strand College of Hair Design. NO Hours will be transferred in after a student has enrolled and is attending classes. A minimum of required hours at Strand College is as follows; Cosmetology-600 hours, Esthtetics-225 hours and Massage Therapy and Bodywork-260 hours. Transfer Examinations are given monthly or as scheduled by the Admissions Office. ALL APPLICANTS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING THEIR OWN SUPPLIES IN ORDER TO TEST. The testing fee will be the same as the registration fee, which is then waived upon enrollment, and is discussed by the Admission office.
