    • As a requirement for the Cosmetology program, students must complete a placement exam in reading and math, or complete equivalent coursework.
    • All students must then complete and pass Cosmetology Concepts, an orientation course designed to maximize understanding of the Cosmetology program. It includes an introduction to the industry and an orientation to the program competencies. Space is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis.
    • Students who successfully complete Cosmetology Concepts will register for first semester courses to confirm their status as a Cosmetology student.
