As Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes are opening our doors to guests and students once more, we wanted to provide our support for those beauty school students who started their education in beauty and may or may not have been able to continue.

If this sounds like you, it’s not too late to finish your education in beauty! There are options out there to transfer from one beauty school to another and get the education needed to pursue a future in cosmetology, esthiology, and more!

Here is an overview of why Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes may be right for you and some tips on the transferring process.

We Are Prepared To Implement New Changes

We were grateful to have the means to provide an online education to our current students so they weren’t held back during this time. As we start to open up our doors again, we will be doing everything we can to keep our students safe.


We are able to accommodate government guidelines to keep our students safe while getting their education. Our large campuses provide more room to adequately provide space for our students and team to follow appropriate social distancing guidelines. We will continue to adapt and change our protocol and curriculum as situations arise.

You Can Pursue New Opportunities

Still looking to explore your calling in beauty? We have a variety of programs to choose from, depending on the location. This also can make us a good choice to transfer schools, as you may find a good match of your previous program. A few of the programs we offer are:

We may accept transfer students at each of our locations on a case-by-case basis. See what program fits your interests at the location closest to you!

How To Transfer Beauty Schools

Our Dream Makers are ready to help make the transferring process as smooth as possible. Often, transferring schools can feel like applying for the first time, with a few extra steps. A general overview of some of the steps you can expect to take are:

1. Schedule Your Tour

We will let you know when we can do in-person tours or virtual tours. This is still a good first step, as you need to make sure your new school is a right fit, and we can talk through your situation. You can also expect us to walk you through the transferring process and what to expect as a transfer student.


2. Apply

You’ll have to apply to the location you’re interested in, since transfer students are considered a new student when going to a different school. During the application process, we’ll get to know you to see if our school is a good fit for you!

3. Get Information From Your Previous School

Asking your previous school for your transcript information and any outstanding balances is a must. This makes it much easier for Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes to help determine whether it’s possible to transfer and what credits can transfer.

We’ve covered the transferring process much more in-depth in our blog about the five steps you should take when transferring beauty schools.
