Why study at KC?
I would like to study abroad, but am not sure which course I should choose
When can I start?
How much are living expenses? What else do I need to bring?
Will I get my license by finishing the KC program?
Do students need a visa when studying abroad for less than three months?
I graduated from a beauty school in my country but haven't taken the licensing exam. In this case, can I still transfer my credits to KC?
I don't really understand how I can transfer my beauty license into a California license.
How long does the transfer process take?
Do you need a Social Security number (SSN) in order to take the licensing exam?
Do salon work hours count in the transfer requirement hours?
