REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION:
The student must show evidence of high school graduation, completion of a General equivalency diploma, a college transcript, or have earned a diploma at a foreign high school. A diploma or transcript from a foreign high school must be translated and evaluated by a qualified agency to confirm the equivalence to a U.S.-issued diploma. Students lacking a high school diploma or its equivalent may be admitted upon demonstrating the ability to benefit from the training offered. This can be demonstrated by successfully attaining a score of 200 on the Verbal form and a 210 for the mathematics form on the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test (BST). Suppose an applicant cannot achieve the minimum acceptable score on the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test. In that case, the student may reapply for admission within 30 days and retake the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test.
Applicants must be beyond the age of compulsory school attendance (16) to be admitted into the Cosmetology and Cosmetology-related programs. Applicants must be at least (17) years of age or older to apply for the Massage Therapy program and must be (18) by the time of graduation. *A Parent or guardian signature is required for applicants under 18 at the time of application.
Prospective students must make formal applications and be accepted by the school. The applicant will receive a catalog and must complete and sign an Enrollment Agreement before beginning classes. Applicants are encouraged to complete the enrollment process well before their desired start date, as class size is limited to ensure individualized instruction.
A student who has been terminated or withdrawn may re-apply to Hollywood Institute and Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers in the same status as when they were withdrawn. At that time, the student’s academic records will be evaluated to determine if it is possible for a cumulative grade point to be achieved and for the program to be completed within the maximum time frame of 150%. Returning Students will be charged a $100 Re-entry fee.
After being readmitted to Hollywood Institute and Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers, the student’s progress will be re-evaluated at the next progress evaluation point. If the student has failed to achieve minimum requirements, the student is subject to termination from the school. Title IV recipients will lose eligibility to receive Title IV funds at this evaluation point if found not to be meeting the minimum Satisfactory Progress requirements.

After evaluating the official transcripts of the other institution attended, the Education Department may conduct an evaluation exam, including written and practical examinations.
Based upon the recommendation of the Education department and/or Campus Director, Hollywood Institute and Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers may accept a transfer student’s hours and services from another licensed institution. The student’s tuition account will be adjusted accordingly to reflect the reduced hours of training. *No more than 50% of the program credits will be transferred to Hollywood Institute from another institution.
