State Authorization

The Cosmetology program at Pitt Community College meets the educational requirements to prepare students for the cosmetology licensing exam required by the North Carolina Cosmetic Arts Board, the certifying agency that awards NC cosmetology licenses. This training requires 1500 hours of instruction in addition to successful completion of a variety of skilled performances as per the NC Cosmetic Board-approved curriculum. After successful completion of the PCC program, students must make application to the NC Cosmetic Arts Board and schedule a licensing exam. Students wishing to practice as a cosmetologist in other states should contact the agency or board that oversees cosmetology licenses in that state for their requirements. It is possible that hours accumulated in the Pitt Community College program may transfer as all or part of that specific state’s cosmetology license requirements. Learn more.
