Turn some heads! Are you always getting compliments on your own style and fashion sense? Why not turn what you love into a career?
A student who successfully completes 1500 clock hours of work in TCD’s state-licensed School of Cosmetology and passes the practical exam will be awarded a certificate from TCD and qualify to take the Illinois State License Exam.
What will my classes be like?
There is a serious side to all this glamour! You will be amazed to learn how chemistry, anatomy, and geometry are used every day by cosmetology professionals.
Apply your skills through TCD's full-service salon, industry internships, or community projects (theatrical productions, fashion shows, and community service events).
It is possible to earn up to 46 hours of college credit through this program. After graduation, use that great head start to obtain an associate’s degree, adding even greater value to your state license.

The total cost to complete TCD's two-year Cosmetology program in FY15 was a little over $1800. This included the class fee for each school year, $100 for each spring break session, and $675 for the 2014 summer session. These fees are the responsibility of the student; please contact TCD's Business Office or your school counselor if you have questions about these fees.
Compare this total cost to private cosmetology schools, which can run anywhere between $10,000 and $25,000, without the added benefit of college credit.
TCD Cosmetology's dual credit (up to 46 hours of college credit) is offered at no cost to a student. The student is required to take and pass the College of DuPage Compass Reading test at the beginning of the year in order to enroll in dual credit.
