Is it time for a change? Is your current beauty school closing or not offering the program you want? Are you moving but want to continue your cosmetology education? Whatever your reason, transferring beauty schools can be a heady thing. You might not even know where to begin. So without further ado, here is your one-stop-shop for all information regarding transferring to a beauty school in Ohio and specifically transferring to Moler Academy.
How Do I Transfer to a New Beauty School?
Before you even begin this process, you’ll need to do some research about which new school you’ll be attending. Perhaps you want a school similar to the one you are currently attending, or you want one in a specific location. Consider all factors when choosing a new school, and make sure that you’ll be able to complete their requirements. As for Moler Academy, follow these steps:
Apply to your new beauty school.
To begin, you’ll need to fill out the request information form for Moler Academy. Once you’ve done that, one of our representatives will be in contact with you to further discuss your transfer to Moler.
Ensure your new school will accept your existing hours.
Make sure you’ve properly logged your hours at your previous school. When you speak with our representative, let them know that this will be a transfer, and they’ll be able to inform you as to whether or not your hours will be counted. Moler accepts hours from most schools.
Pay any outstanding fees or fines at your current school.
Call your school admissions office to figure out if you have an outstanding balance at your previous school. If they are closing down you will have to figure out a prorated amount that you will likely owe. If you are transferring for personal reasons, ensure that you have paid your full amount. If you leave the school without paying, you will not be accepted at Moler Academy.
If you have taken out loans for your beauty schooling, log onto your FAFSA account and add your new school there. FAFSA is able to switch where your financial aid is directed, and you can continue to use the same amount of money in a different location.
Once accepted, you’ll need to transfer your credits.
Request a transcript from your current school which lists your completed classes and hours. Send this transcript to Moler Academy, and we will approve as many hours that apply to our program here, and let you know how many you will still need to complete to graduate.
Begin the rest of your hours at your new school!
