To qualify to take the California State Cosmetology License Examination for Estheticians, applicants must complete a minimum of 600 hours of training. By enrolling and attending full-time, students in SMC’s Skin Care/Esthetician Program can complete the State requirements in a single semester.

Full-time students attend classes Monday through Friday from 8:00am-4:30pm. In addition to school holidays, breaks include two weeks between Fall and Winter sessions, one week in Spring and one week between Summer and Fall session. We do not offer evening or weekend classes.

Hours from other cosmetology schools are transferable with a Proof of Training Document from the school. The State Board of Cosmetology may grant students with international or out-of-state licenses credit towards the 600-hour requirement.
