Making the Cut
All students must complete Making the Cut, an orientation course designed to maximize your understanding of the Cosmetology program. During this orientation you will receive an introduction to the industry and an orientation to the program competencies. You will also be assessed on preparedness, skill and abilities to ensure an educational match and increase the chance of successful program completion.
Making the Cut is offered each December, March, and May. Students admitted into a pre-petition status will receive registration instructions. Space is limited and is available on a first come first serve basis. Because Making the Cut is a petition requirement with limited space students are encouraged to attend the first available session of Making the Cut. Students who have successfully completed Making the Cut and register for first semester courses will be awarded a seat based on course availability.
