The student who completes the AAS degree and becomes a licensed Cosmetology Instructor will have more opportunities for employment. The following is course of study for students beginning the program in the fall.

Students in the Cosmetology Instructor Certificate program must complete all six courses with a grade of “C” or better to graduate with the certificate.
