Cosmetology Program to host open house on Pittsburg Campus
Fort Scott, Kansas – The Fort
Scott Community College Cosmetology Program will be hosting an open house on
the Pittsburg campus on December 18th from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Potential students and family members are
invited to tour the facilities at 813 N. Broadway in Pittsburg.
The open house
will feature door prizes, including a scholarship to attend FSCC. Interested students will also be able to fill
out a free application.
Cosmetology Program consists of 1,500 hours of instruction and work, customarily
spread over a 9- to 10-month period. Classes, which begin in January and July,
meet eight hours per day, five days per week. Completion of the program will
qualify students to take the state licensure examination.
Meister, FSCC’s Occupational Recruiter, said of the open house, “It’s a
wonderful chance for potential students to see our facilities and learn more
about our program.”
Community College’s Cosmetology program costs about $6000 in total. According to the National Center for
Education Statistics, private cosmetology programs in Missouri and Kansas run
between $11,000 and $14,000 for tuition but do not offer college credit or
continued, “Cosmetology students at FSCC receive college credit through our
program and students can work toward a two-year degree. Our certificate program also includes
manicuring as part of the cosmetology program.”
Schools students are invited to participate in up to 80 hours of the
cosmetology program funded through the Career Technical Education Initiative
also known as Senate Bill 155.
The cosmetology program operates under the
supervision of the Kansas State Board of Cosmetology and Fort Scott Community
College is accredited by the Kansas Board of Regents and the Higher Learning
Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
FSCC’s 2015 cosmetology classes begin
January 6 and July 8.
