This week, news of unexpected closures of all 56 Marinello Beauty School locations left more than 4,000 students questioning their next move.
Mandalyn Academy is working diligently to help place Marinello students from Provo, UT in our American Fork location. Navigating the transfer process can be confusing, but Mandalyn Academy will work diligently to guide students into new programs.
Not every transfer is caused because of a school closure, but in the event that it happens schools receiving transfer students must take the steps to verify that students are eligible to train and study. The process may take a bit of time, but we will fight for students to complete their programs in as timely a manner possible.
Where Do I Start?
In order to start the transfer process, you’ll need to amend your FAFSA so that we can see what aid you qualify for at our school.
Simply visit the FAFSA website and login to the portal like you did when you first applied for beauty school, and use the Mandalyn Academy School Code : 041619 to amend the most recent filing.
If you’re a Marinello student looking to transfer, the documents that you’ll need to provide to transfer to Mandalyn will be in the exit packet provided by Marinello Schools.
If you’re a traditional transfer student who is transferring to Mandalyn, you will need to provide a proof of training or a verification of hours completed such as transcript.
The important thing to remember, is that transfer and financial aid eligibility are determined on an individual basis. The best way to ensure that you are getting the correct and most up-to-date information about this matter is to call our admissions office and schedule an appointment.
