 (f)  A student who has commenced training under the previous curriculum before January 25, 1992, is not affected by subsection (c).

 (g)  A student may not receive credit for time spent in the barber school until registration or renewal licenses for the schools have been obtained from the Board.

 (h)  Whenever a student at the time of enrolling is entitled to credits previously earned at an out-of-State or in-State school, the school enrolling the student shall carefully evaluate the credits. A mere statement that the applicant for certification of entrance credits has pursued work elsewhere will not be accepted as sufficient evidence. The statement shall be documentary evidence showing attendance at a given school, and if possible, the number of hours attended and the subjects pursued.

 (i)  A student may request a transfer of credits for hours or months of study between a barbershop and a barber school or between shops, whether the barbershop or barber school is in-State or out-of State, if the student passes a test which is based on the number of hours attended and the subjects pursued and is devised by the shop or the school to place the student in the appropriate courses.

 (j)  The Board reserves the right to reject an examination application of a student whose credits have been improperly given or evaluated.
