The program is block scheduled on the Athens, Palestine, and Terrell campus from 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday each fall and spring semester.
Students enrolled in the cosmetology operator certificate program will obtain a minimum of 1,000 clock hours to satisfy the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR) requirements. These hours will be obtained by completing in-class instruction.
Note: Criminal history may disqualify individuals from obtaining or maintaining any cosmetology certifications.
- restricts the issuance of occupational licenses based on a license applicant’s criminal history; and
- authorizes the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), in some cases, to consider a person convicted, even though the person was only on probation or community supervision without a conviction.
Individuals who have been convicted of an offense or placed on probation might not be eligible for an occupational license issued by TDLR even after completing an educational or training program;
TDLR’s criminal history guidelines are available at www.tdlr.texas.gov/crimconvict.htm and include restrictions or guidelines TDLR uses to determine eligibility for an occupational license; and individuals have the right to request a criminal history evaluation letter from TDLR, which is explained in more detail at www.tdlr.texas.gov/crimhistoryeval.htm.
There is a $25 student permit fee to be paid to TDLR prior to the first day of class in addition to the regular TVCC tuition and fees.
