Students wishing to have previous formal training evaluated for transfer-ability of credit into a module based program, must provide the following:

An official copy of the transcript sent directly from the previous institution to the College for Technical Education.

Official descriptions from the previous institution, of the courses to be transferred.

To be transferable, a course must meet the objectives of a course also being offered at CTE. In some cases, more than one course may be needed to make up the objectives of one CTE course. Courses taken at another institution must have earned a grade of “C” or better to be considered transferable.

Transferred coursework must be submitted and evaluated prior to the start of the program. There is no guarantee courses will transfer.

The decision as to the transfer ability of a credit from another institution is at the sole discretion of the CTE Registrar and a program instructor in the program that student is entering.

Transfer students into the Cosmetology program with CTE, are evaluated individually per student. Students may be independently tested by course, by instructors, to
determine the mastery of skills.
