California Admission Requirements
Students must have a high school diploma, GED Certificate of equivalent. In order to verify the authenticity, transcripts may be required. If a transcript is not available, the student will be required to meet the ability to benefit (ATB) requirements or take and pass a GED test prior to enrollment.

Ability to Benefit (ATB)
This is only available for cash-paying students. Prospective students who are beyond the age of compulsory attendance in the state of California (18 years of age), have a minimum 10 th grade education, and have the ability to benefit from the training may also qualify for admission to the Academy. The ability to benefit from the training will be determined by taking and passing an entrance examination (ATB Test). Approved passing scores on this test are Verbal 200 and Quantitative 210.

To be eligible for Financial Aid students must have a High School Diploma, GED, or proof of completion of a State-approved home school program. Students who have previously taken an ATB test and who have been enrolled on that basis prior to July 1, 2012, remain eligible to receive Financial Aid.

Kansas Admission Requirements
Only students 16 years of age holding High School Diplomas, General Education Diploma (GED) Certificates or the equivalent will be admitted. The Academy will verify the authenticity of the diploma prior to enrollment. If the diploma cannot be verified, the student may be asked to provide a final high school transcript showing the dates of entrance and graduation and the courses completed. If a transcript is not available, the student will be required to take and pass a GED test prior to enrollment. Students must have attained the age of 17 before applying to take the Kansas Cosmetology Examination. Each applicant must have a current driver’s license or I.D. and Social Security number.
