Transcript or transfer service for eligible students will be provided at a cost of $10.00. We reserve the right to withhold transcripts, including academic scores and accumulated hours, from students under certain circumstances including but not limited to defaulting on a Federal Student Loan or an unsatisfied account balance with the school. Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology cannot guarantee that any hours or academic scores obtained at Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology will be accepted by any other institution for transfer purposes. This is at the discretion of accepting institution and it is the student’s responsibility to confirm if their hours/academics will be accepted by another institution.
Transfer / Re-Entry to Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology
Students wishing to transfer into Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology 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 also 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.
All students re-entering will have their prior available academic and attendance records reviewed by the school to determine if any credit for previous training will be given by the school and placement within the program. Full, partial or no hour credit may be given at the discretion of the school. If an excessive period of time has lapsed from the student’s last day of attendance, the re-entering student will be administered, by the school, a written and practical exam to determine acceptance of hours and placement in our program. 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. Students re-entering Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology return at the same satisfactory progress standing as when they left.

Tuition for transfer and re-entry students is prorated based on the current hourly rate for their program of study. Current hourly rate is determined by dividing the current tuition amount for the full program by the number of clock hours for the full program. The transfer or re-entry student may also be charged the current enrollment fee for their program as well as charges for materials (material kit, textbooks, and uniforms) required for their program of study.
Transfer to Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology, Cosmetology program: The minimum number of required practical activities for graduation will be prorated based on the number of hours the student is transferring into the school. All other academic requirements for graduation will be based on the student’s level placement as determined by the transfer evaluation.
Transfer to Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology is only available for our Cosmetology and Barbering programs. 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.
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.
