Is Jade College an approved school?
What are the graduation requirements?
To get your Diploma or Certificate, you must complete the program hours, successfully pass the written and practical examinations, and complete the required number of practical procedures formulated by Jade College.
Once I finish the program, will I get my license?
To receive your license, you must pass an examination by the State Board of California.
Students of Jade College have a very high passing rate. We help prepare you for the exam every step of the way. Throughout the program, we give you several exams referred to as the “baby board exam” before you take the State Board. With this preparation, you’ll know what to expect. Foreign students do not qualify for the State License unless they possess a valid Social Security Number.
Tell me about the classes. What can I expect?
Our classes are exciting, informational, and diverse, ranging from a multitude of topics. Lectures and live demonstrations are taught and presented by school instructors who have more than ten to fifteen years of experience. We also have guest speakers and incorporate videos and practical application.
When can I start school?
Jade College has an open enrollment policy and programs are offered continuously. Students may begin on any Monday of the week. This is possible because a new topic is covered every week and the program eventually cycles itself. For instance, lets say there are four topics — A, B, C, and D — one for each week. A student begins on Week B. Though Week D theoretically ends the program, the following week will start back at Week A. Please consult with the school’s counselor regarding specific start dates.
When do I begin to work on “real people”?
You must complete 25% of your required program hours before you start working on mannequins, classmates, and salon guests. For example, if your program is 1600 hours, you must first complete 400 hours of the program. If, however, your instructor determines you are already at an advance level, you may start earlier.
Is there a minimum age to enroll?
Yes, you must be at least 16 years of age to begin training.
Do I need to have a high school diploma?
yes, but if you don’t have one, you’ll need a GED certificate or be able to demonstrate the ability to benefit from the training by passing the ATB (Ability To Benefit) test offered at Jade College.
Do you offer financial aid?
Yes! We have financial aid available for those who qualify, both from private and government programs. The financial assistance programs are very flexible and can be tailored to your individual requirements.
Will you help me find a job once I get my license?
Jade offers Placement Assistance. We will definitely help you find a position and assist you in reaching your career goals.
