Program Type: Certificate of Achievement

Division: Community Education Center - Credit

Program Description:
The curriculum prepares students to seek employment as cosmetologists in beauty salons. The program includes all phases of Cosmetology. Upon successful completion of this full-time day program (1,600 hours), a student is eligible to take the Bureau of Barbering and Cosmetology Examination for licensure as a cosmetologist.

Continuous enrollment until completion of the program is required. Cosmt 114A-D and 117AB are offered each semester. New day students may enter at the beginning of each eight-week period. Cosmt 115 and 116 are offered in an eight-week Summer session.

Continuing or returning students who do not attend the Summer session will be readmitted in the Fall semester on a space-available basis only, starting with the second nine weeks of instruction. Eligibility for subsequent enrollment is based on a grade of C or better in each prior cosmetology course.

A student must have proof of completion of 10th grade in high school, good finger dexterity and coordination and show evidence of good physical and emotional health. An approved uniform is required for the program. Tuition, books, uniforms, and cosmetology supplies totaling approximately $1,200 will be needed in the first week of the program.

A student who is dropped from a cosmetology class for unsafe practices and/or inappropriate conduct, or withdraws twice from the course, and/or drops twice for excessive absences is not eligible to re-enroll except upon approval of the college Petitions Committee. Students who have acquired 300 or less hours in another cosmetology program may be admitted to the program subject to availability of space.
