Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design cannot guarantee that any hours or academic scores obtained at Schilling-Douglas school of Hair Design will be accepted by any other institution for transfer purposes.

Transfer to Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design
Transfer to Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design is only available for our Cosmetology, Barbering & Nail Technology programs. Students wishing to transfer into Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design from a different institution must present, prior to enrollment, official documentation of their previous hours and availability for transfer. This documentation must be an official notarized transcript from the original school listing the hours earned by the student in the required curriculum areas. If the original school is out-of-state, verification from the appropriate licensing authority that the original school is licensed in that state must be obtained. The school will, prior to enrollment, administer a written and practical exam to the transferee to determine hour acceptance and placement within our program.
All applicants transferring hours must do so prior to enrollment. Transfer hours will not be accepted once the applicant is enrolled in their program of study.
Applicants, who are currently licensed by the Delaware Board of Cosmetology and Barbering as a Nail Technician or have previously completed a program in Nail Technology in a Delaware approved school, may transfer 125 hours into the Cosmetology program. This transfer does not require the completion of a written and practical exam by the school, prior to enrollment. No credit will be given toward any academic requirements established for the cosmetology program. Documentation of a current Delaware Nail Technician license or completion of a Nail Technology program in a Delaware approved school must be provided to the school prior to enrollment.
If a student with previous training wishes to enroll and it is decided that credit will not be given for previous training, the student will sign a waiver for credit from previous training. If a student wishes to enroll and it is determined that credit for all or a portion of their previous training will be accepted the student will sign a transfer hour credit form acknowledging the number of hours accepted for transfer by the school.

All students re-entering after 180 calendar days of their last day of attendance:

This exam will take place prior to the re-entering student’s enrollment. The determination made by the school may only be challenged prior to the start of the new enrollment. Once the final determination is made, the student will sign an acknowledgement of hours being accepted and/or a statement to acknowledge the student is waiving other previous hours prior to enrollment.

Academic requirements for transfer and reentry after 180 calendar day students:

Transfer hours and Satisfactory Academic Progress:
With regard to satisfactory academic progress, a student’s transfer hours will be counted as both attempted and completed hours for the purpose of determining when the allowable maximum time frame has been exhausted.
