We are so excited that you are taking this opportunity to explore a career in the beauty industry. I’m sure you are consumed with questions and concerns about your education, the school, what’s expected of you, school policies, etc… It is important that you get as many of these questions and concerns answered as quickly as possible so that you are able to enroll, settle in and focus on your William Edge edge-ucation.
Are you ready to begin? If you’re excited about the prospect of training at William Edge Institute, here is all you have to do to get started:
William Edge Institute accepts transfer students that qualify for admissions, and may accept all of the hours earned toward licensure, but reserves the right to deny transfer hours from another institution for any reason. Out of state hours must be evaluated and accepted by TDLR prior to the School Director’s review. The School Director (or designate) will review prior hours to determine their acceptance. In addition, a theory and/or practical test may be administered to determine hours accepted. Students will not receive credit for prior hours after course commencement.
We highly recommend you pay any balance for previously received hours before class commencement. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation will not allow a student to become licensed if they owe tuition for hours transferred from a prior school.
To be eligible for readmission to the William Edge Institute, the student must meet all admissions requirements and be current on any outstanding debts with the institution.
Prior clocked hours may be evaluated prior to readmission and may or may not be approved. Approval for readmission is determined by the Director and is based on education, schedule and space availability. William Edge Institute reserves the right to deny readmission following termination or withdrawal for any reason. If readmission approval is granted, the applicant may be required to submit a new Registration Fee (if applicable), sign a new Enrollment Agreement and pay additional tuition, books, supplies and equipment costs (if applicable). If a student withdraws and has been charged 100% of their Agreement price, a student in good standing (financial, academic and behavioral) may be eligible to return to the course during the following forty-eight (48) month period without any additional tuition costs. If a student withdraws and has been charged less than 100% of their agreement, the student may be eligible to return to the course, and may incur additional tuition costs. William Edge Institute reserves the right to deny a readmission request for any reason including, but not limited to attendance, behavior or academic performance.
William Edge Institute initiates an Advisory Board Meeting each year to help access their success, failures and operations of the previous year.
The Advisory Committee is composed of salon owners or managers, present and former students, staff and Edge-ucators. Committee members are subject to change as new members are added or deleted.
Concerns and suggestions from the meeting are formulated into William Edge Institute’s new year objectives and beyond. Feedback from the Advisory Committee assures a close relationship between the Institute and what salons and the industry are trying to accomplish.
Students receive a numeric grade in both their academic and practical work. The grading scale for practical assignments and academic test are as follows:
A = 90% -100% Excellent
B = 80% – 89% Above Average
C = 70% – 79% Satisfactory
D = 60% – 69% Needs Improvement
F = 0% – 59% Failing
*Students meeting the minimum requirements for academics and attendance at the evaluation point are considered to be making satisfactory progress until the next scheduled evaluation.
