Cosmetology Program

District 214’s Cosmetology Program is a 1-year program that satisfies 750 hours of the 1500-hour State of Illinois Cosmetology licensure requirements for students who are interested in pursuing a career in hair, nails and esthetics.

District 214 will provide tuition costs for the first year of the two-year program. Through the program, students are responsible for course materials and providing reliable transportation in addition to tuition/fee costs for the second year of the program after graduation.

The Cosmetology training sites include Technology Campus of Lake County and Technology Center of DuPage County. Students will have the option of selecting one of these sites which meets their scheduling and personal needs and will be asked to rank their preference. There are cost and program differences between the programs so careful review of program information is recommended. Students enrolled in more than three courses during the school day may not be eligible for the program.

Students must be in 12th grade and concurrently enrolled in Independent Family Consumer Science (05990) for both semesters, which will result in 3 credit hours earned for the year.
