The program offers degrees for the facial specialist, instructor license, and operator license tracks. The Cosmetology Instructor AAS Degree is a full-time, 12-month program. The programs are approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations. Upon successful completion of the program requirements, graduates are eligible to take their state exam. Upon passing their state exam, program graduates become licensed to teach in the State of Texas.
Graduates of the cosmetology programs have many employment opportunities including becoming a hair dresser, skin care specialist, and make-up artist. Other areas may be to become a research assistant in the cosmetology industry, a sales representative for a beauty product, or beauty editor for newspapers and magazines. Salaries vary depending upon the place of employment and the graduate’s skills and number of work hours.
In addition to the system admission requirements, the following are requirements for admission to the cosmetology program:
- High school diploma or GED.
- Completed ENGL 0304 and ENGL 0306 or (ESOL) equivalent, or higher level ENGL course or placement by testing.
- Minimum age of 17 years.
- Mandatory attendance at a scheduled orientation session or departmental approval.
- Program admission for students with previous college experience requires that the student be in disciplinary good standing at all former institutions. No student will be admitted who is under disciplinary suspension status from another college or institution. Any such status requires positive resolution from the other institution before a student will be considered for cosmetology admission.
After program admission approval, the student must have the registration form approved by the cosmetology academic counselor. Applicants who have completed hours in cosmetology in other educational programs may apply for placement by examination for CSME 1254, 1310, 1501, and 1505. Official verification of the hours completed is required.
Once admitted to the cosmetology program, a student must attain a grade of “C” or better in each cosmetology course as well as satisfactory attendance record (refer to Cosmetology Student Handbook) in order to progress in the program.
A student who withdraws from the cosmetology program may be re-admitted only once with the recommendation of the department faculty.
