Upon successful completion of the cosmetology courses, the student will earn a certificate from Del Mar College and will be eligible to take a written and practical exam given by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. A Cosmetology Advisory Committee assist the college officials in the implementation of the program curriculum and job entry level needs in the industry. Students must complete all required Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation practical skills and 1500 clock hours in three semesters. (500) clock hours must be completed in each semester. Students entering the Cosmetology Certificate Program must comply with the sequential order of course listing.

    High school students now have the opportunity to attend Cosmetology classes on our campus starting in their sophomore year. Our certificate plan spans three years and if applicable, a student can complete high school and certificate program simultaneously. Upon graduation students can obtain licensure in the state of Texas by passing a written and practical exam. This is an amazing opportunity for young adults to graduate high school and be ready for the workforce.
