Transfer Students

Each student will be assessed on the number of hours needed to complete the state requirement. Transfer students must supply the most recent SAP report/transcripts from the previous institution and must have a kit and books equivalent to Dolce Academy’s equipment or these can be purchased through Dolce Academy. Transfer hours may not be granted. This is dependent on length of time from withdrawal from previous institution and equivalency of curriculum of previous institution. It is at the sole discretion of Dolce Academy to decide if transfer hours are acceptable. Transfer students will be charged $10.00 per each hour needed to fulfill the state requirement of 1,500 hours.
