Fall 2022 Academic Calendar



Welcome to the Vernon College Cosmetology Program. Cosmetology as a professional career offers many opportunities and rewards to students. The program prepares students to take the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations Exam upon completion of the program. The Cosmetology faculty and staff hope that you find the profession of cosmetology a rewarding, challenging, and profitable career.

It is our objective to not only teach the necessary skills as required in the cosmetology industry, but also to teach the attitudes and work habits that are required by industry management. After all, your success is our success.

The Cosmetology operator program is a one year certificate of completion credit hour program. (30 credit hours) The program focuses on hair-styling, manicures, facials, and skin care. A Cosmetologist specializes in the styling of hair, including cutting and chemical services such as relaxers, texturizers, perms, and color, as well as restorative treatments. Students will learn about salon development to help with the business management of their practice. Courses are available at the Vernon Campus and Century City Center. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to take the examination prescribed by the State Licensing agency to become a Licensed Cosmetologist.

The Instructor program consists of five courses. It is a certificate of completion credit hour program (20 credit hours).
