Award: Associate of Applied Science (See also Cosmetology-AAS program)
The purpose of this program is to meet the need of licensed cosmetologists who are seeking to own and operate a small business or to effectively operate a chair rental business. The degree will provide the knowledge and training to successfully open and operate a cosmetology business.
This program is offered as a result of a partnership with Northeast Iowa Community College, Capri College and Stewart School. In addition to the College admission requirements outlined, applicants to this program must complete the courses required for the Entrepreneurial Cosmetology Degree. Near the completion of the NICC program, students will be required to submit a state cosmetology license to the NICC Office of the Registrar in order to be awarded an AAS degree in the program.
A degree will only be given to students who possess a state cosmetology license. Students may, in fact, begin and complete some required classes before or while seeking their cosmetology license. Capri and Stewart School students need not take the Communication course (COM:723) as long as they have passed all Capri College or Stewart School communication courses (900-1, 900-2, 900-3, 900-4). Students may start taking courses in high school (if available), while attending or after graduating from Capri College or Stewart School. A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for graduation.
