Do I Need a High School Diploma To Apply for Cosmetology School?

While a high school diploma is required to be considered for admission, we offer alternate options to work toward full admission to the cosmetology program of your choice. Bene’s Career Academy has created a pathway program for those who do not yet have a high school diploma or GED equivalent. Through our Career Pathways program, students can earn their GED alongside their cosmetology certification.

What Programs Does Bene's Career Academy Offer?

Bene’s Career Academy offers a range of entry-level programs as well as advanced courses in the beauty and wellness industry, including:

Do you help me find a job when I finish?

You meet so many incredible guest artists, salon owners, and industry professionals at our school that by the time you graduate, most of our graduates know exactly where they’re going. While we can’t guarantee employment, you’ll have a lot of opportunities to network and decide where you’d like to be!

How Do I Apply for Enrollment?

Bene’s Career Academy welcomes students of all backgrounds. No matter where you are in your career journey, you’ll find a supportive community to gain experience and bolster your skills.

All applicants must present proof of being above the age of compulsory school attendance, which is 16 years old in the state of Florida. Prospective students must also have obtained a High School Diploma or GED approved by the Florida Department of Education. Homeschooled students must have a state-issued credential for secondary school completion.

If applying for our Instructor Training program, students must hold a current Florida Cosmetology, Barber, or Specialty Registration and have two years of salon experience.

Admissions requirements are further outlined within the pre-enrollment packet. Meeting with an admissions counselor is the first step to a lifelong career in the beauty, health, and wellness industry.

Can I Transfer From Another School?

Yes. Bene’s Career Academy accepts transfer students from other institutions. If you’re curious about what credits will transfer to accelerate your education with us, our enrollment counselors can help you navigate the transition.

Our general policy is that we will accept hours from another cosmetology school if the courses are equivalent and a minimum of 25% of the degree program was delivered by the institution awarding the degree.
