Enrollees are admitted as regular students under one of the following criteria:

To be considered for enrollment, all students must pass an admissions test the Scholastic Level Exam, (SLE) with a minimum score of 18 or higher as stated in the test publisher’s guidelines. For a student that has immigrated to the United States and cannot provide an actual copy of the High School Diploma or its equivalent, the applicant will be required to write a statement certifying the completion of High School or its equivalent.
Non-High School graduates or its equivalent, must be at least 18 years of age, must have completed the 10 th grade or its equivalent as required by the California State Board of Cosmetology. This requirement applies to this school as well as other post secondary schools. The test is to be administered by an independent party and not by any school representatives. Students admitted under these criteria are referred to as student’s admitted under the Ability-to-Benefit guidelines.
Currently, our school is using the CPAT (Career Program Assessment Test) that is approved by the Department of Education. The school’s admissions personnel will provide applicants with additional information as to how to arrange for the Ability-to-Benefit test. All Ability-to-Benefit students must take the test prior to admission. If the student does not pass the exam, re-testing is available and the school staff will give information regarding re-testing procedures.
