Students wishing to transfer to J. Michael Harrold Beauty Academy, Inc. must complete the admission and enrollment requirements.  An official transcript must be submitted from the previous school(s). This transcript will be reviewed. The hours transferred will be determined after an instructor has evaluated the academics and comprehensive practical skills of the prospective student.

Upon this determination, the tuition will be accessed based on the current per hour rate Contract Agreements.
