Admissions

An applicant must come in for a personal interview and visit to the school. Florida Academy of Beauty admits as regular students, persons who are at least 16 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED. If a student does not have a copy of their High School Diploma we accept an official copy of your transcript. Those applicants who are over the age of compulsory education, but do not have a high school diploma or GED may enroll in the school after successfully completing an ability to benefit examination. All first-time students without a high school diploma or a GED enrolling in classes on or after July 1, 2012, will not be eligible for federal financial aid as a result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012 passed by Congress. This law applies to all colleges and universities.

The ability to benefit examination used by the school is the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test (WBST), Verbal Forms VS-1 & VS-2 and Quantitative Forms QS-1 & QS-2.

The minimum acceptable cut scores are 200 for Verbal and 210 for Quantitative.
