A: I don't know much about barber school and barber licenses, but it is very possible that the school requires different credentials from the agency that issues the licenses. In other words, your immigration status or lack of status might have not been an obstacle to the school, but it still an obstacle to the agency that approves or denies your license.

You may have another way to obtain immigration status. I would advise meeting with an immigration lawyer to find out if you have a pathway to immigration status separate from the school and license, so that you can then return to the license process and complete it.
