When filling out a state licensing application, you see on a requirement to provide “An Official School Transcript.” Not only that, but the “Transcript must be sent directly from the school to the Board office.”
Sometimes there are other requirements, like:
- Sealed in Envelope
- Counterfeit-Proof Paper
- Embossed Stamp
- On School Letterhead
However, you have one big problem with all of those requirements; your massage school has closed or been sold.
What do you do now? Who do you contact? Will your personal transcript copy be accepted by the state board?
The first thing I want to tell you is that massage schools close all the time.
All. The. Time.
Your situation is not uncommon.
The good news is that in helping thousands of people obtain massage licenses in other states, I have only talked to a handful who have never been able to track down their massage school transcript.
