If you were attending another beauty school and you’ve decided to make a switch to The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Huntsville, congratulations! We can’t wait to welcome you to our family. Before you start at our school, here are a few tips for transferring.
Schedule a Tour
Before transferring, you need to make sure that our cosmetology program will be a good fit for you. The best way to determine this is by scheduling a tour of our school! During a tour, you’ll get to meet staff members, educators, and students. This gives you the chance to ask questions face-to-face in real time. You’ll also get to see the classrooms, tools, and products that would be a part of your daily life as a cosmetology student.
Apply to the Program
The next step is to apply to the cosmetology program at TSPA Huntsville. After you’ve taken a tour and had your important questions answered, go to the online application form on our website. Once you submit this form, an admissions advisor will contact you shortly. You can also call us, visit us in person, or apply at the end of the tour!
Make Sure We Have Your Transcripts
To be eligible for our program, you need to send us the transcripts from your previous beauty school.* You should also have your high school transcripts on-hand and proof of high school completion, whether it’s a diploma, GED, or another form of high school equivalency.
Our 1500-hour cosmetology program typically takes just under a year to complete. These hours are required by the Alabama Board of Cosmetology and Barbering in order to become a licensed cosmetologist. We have various start dates throughout the year for both five and three-day programs. You can discuss scheduling with an admissions advisor to decide which type of program will work best for you and your schedule.
Discuss Financial Aid
We know that financial roadblocks can be a huge frustration for prospective students. That’s why we’re happy to offer financial aid at TSPA Huntsville to those who qualify. As you’re preparing to enroll in our school, talk to a financial advisor about creating a financial plan that works for you.
