Enrollment Dates and Term of Courses:
Students may enroll and start training on any Tuesday of any week as long as there is an opening in the College. Classes are held five days per week; Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 am until 5:30 pm on Saturday (with a thirty-minute break for lunch). The 1800 clock hour course required for graduation takes approximately 11 months to complete for full-time students who attend eight hours per day, forty hours per week, for 48 weeks.
After a student has completed the required 1,800 clock ours and the account has been settled in full, the necessary paperwork to take to the Ohio State Barber Board test will be completed and immediately sent to the State Barber Board. The Board will then schedule the testing date and forward the date to the individual.
We understand that not everyone can attend on a full-time basis because of home or job responsibilities. However, we do admit a select number of applicants to attend part-time if schedules can be arranged without creating difficulties for either the College or the students. If you need a part-time schedule, an interview must be arranged to discuss scheduling alternatives. A full 8 clock hour on Saturday is one of the requirements.
Admission Requirements & Procedures:
Each student must have a high school diploma (or its equivalent) and be 17 years of age or older. Credit will be given for previous barber training when approved by the Ohio State Barber Board and evaluated by an instructor to determine how much credit is to be given.
