Cosmetology

The Cosmetology Program at Midland College offers students the ability to be licensed within a year.

Midland College is certified by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations as a cosmetology training provider. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for successful completion of the Texas Cosmetology Operator licensure examination.

Each year, the Midland College Cosmetology Program contributes to the Midland community through haircuts for needy children, contributions to Breast Cancer Awareness through pink hair extensions, and other outreach activities. 

With our on-site salon environment, students receive hands-on training while serving members of the community.

From the students...

PLEASE NOTE: Completion of Midland College degrees and/or certificates does not guarantee eligibility to take a certification/registry/licensure examination. The eligibility of each person is determined on an individual basis by the regulatory body of the specific discipline. If you have a conviction of a crime other than a minor traffic violation, physical or mental disability/illness, hospitalization/treatment for chemical dependency within the past five years, current intemperate use of drugs or alcohol or a previous denial of a licensure or action by a licensing authority, you will need to contact the specific regulatory body for an individual ruling. Some programs require a criminal background check and urine and drug screen.
