The Associate in Applied Science program in Cosmetology is designed to provide specialized instruction in practical application, communi­cation skills, and general knowledge for employment as a licensed cosmetologist.  The cosmetology courses in the program prepare students to successfully pass the Michigan State Board of Cosmetology Exam, which is required by law to practice cosmetology in Michigan.  To obtain the required 1500 clock hours required to take the exam, students will complete 16 sections, as each section requires a completion of 96 clock hours.  During COS 13600, qualifying students will receive an application to take the Michigan State Board of Cosmetology Exam and will be required to complete 36 hours in a job shadow experience.  Job placement in this program is excellent. Transfer students or those who completed the Cosmetology Certificate from prior years must submit a copy of a current cosmetology license prior to completing this program.  We welcome high school students into the cosmetology program.
