SOUTH CAROLINA BARBER AND COSMETOLOGY PROFESSIONS
Important Information Regarding the Examination
Through a competitive bid process for examination and related services for its Boards for Barbers and Cosmetology, the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR) has decided to award the examination contract to a new vendor. The following information is very important. Please be aware of and plan for specific deadlines in order for a smooth transition:
The Final Theory Examination Date and Deadlines:
Candidate applications must be received and approved for the theory examination by the deadline date of 06/19/2020.
Candidates who need to take or retake their theory examination must schedule to test with PSI no later than 06/22/2020.
The last date PSI will test theory examination candidates through PCS is 06/29/2020.
Due to the COVID-19 disease, our priorities continue to be the safety of our examiners, staff, and candidates. During this transition, we will not administer the practical exam.
Candidates’ final scores and records will be sent to LLR on 07/06/2020.
Note: Individual Refunds WILL NOT be issued. PCS will forward all License fees and Exam fees to the state for all eligible candidates with an open application this past year. Additional information regarding this transition, exams, applications, and the licensing process can be obtained through LLR at Boardinfo@llr.sc.gov
PCS has very much enjoyed serving you over the past 14 years. Thank you for allowing our staff the privilege of guiding you through the testing process as you have worked diligently to fulfill your dreams of becoming licensed in your field.
