Number of Hours

Students can transfer a maximum of 40.5 quarter credit hours from an accredited cosmetology school. These credits go towards the vocation core of the degree.

Practical Hours for License

You must also show you have your state license for cosmetology before you enter our Salon Management program. The details vary by state, but there are usually two main requirements. 

The first license requirement for a cosmetology license is your practical hours or an apprenticeship. You need to complete a minimum number of practice hours in an actual cosmetology setting, such as a workplace or a hands-on class. You may also be an apprentice to a licensed cosmetologist. In cosmetology, 1,500 hours of practical classroom experience comes to 50 credit hours. Of those 50 hours, you get to transfer a maximum of 40.5 hours into Bryan University’s Salon Management degree program.

Examination for License

The second requirement for a cosmetology license comes from taking your state examination. The state exam has a written section and a practical section. You must demonstrate competency in the practices of hair cutting and cosmetology for your exam. Your cosmetology license shows you have a great set of skills entering the Salon Management program!

License Renewal

States may require you to renew your license after a few years. Make sure to keep your license up-to-date. Bryan University won’t accept expired cosmetology licenses ahead of applying to our Salon Management program.
