Admissions and Criteria for Entry
To be admitted into any of our programs you need to have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent diploma.
If you haven’t graduated from high school and you’re at least 18 years of age, we might still be able to help you achieve your career goals. Ask us how we can help.
We have new full-time and part-time hair and aesthetics programs starting year-round. As with most other important events in life, there are some forms to be filled out, fees to be paid and agreements to be signed. And we need to have a copy of your high-school transcript for our records.
Typically, new programs start the 1st Monday of every month. But sometimes space availability limits our ability to start a new program each month. If this situation arises, students will be admitted according to the date they enrolled. But you’ll know at the time of enrollment if this will be the case because we’ll be able to tell you your start date and the expected completion date.
If you haven’t graduated from high school and you’re at least 18 years of age, we might still be able to help you achieve your career goals. The Private Career College Act, 2005 requires you to have demonstrated that you have acquired the knowledge and skills comparable to high school completion.In the province of Ontario all apprentices in hairstyling must have either:
a grade 12 diploma (OSSD) or other provincial equivalent, or
a General Educational Development Certificate (GED).
Students without an OSSD or GED will not be registered as apprentices and will therefore be unable to reach their ultimate goal of achieving a hairstyling license in Ontario. It is possible to study hairstyling, and concurrently complete an OSSD or GED prior to seeking acceptance as an apprentice. The decision to study hairstyling prior to having an OSSD or GED, is a student’s decision.
