CPCC’s New Cosmetology Program Launches for Fall 2013

CPCC to Open New Cosmetology Program

CPCC to Open New Cosmetology Program

Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) has added a new Cosmetology program that will begin in the fall 2013. “August 15 is the official beginning,” said Catherine Cunningham, program coordinator, Cosmetology. Unlike other Cosmetology schools, CPCC will offer an accredited two-year AAS degree in Cosmetology and classes may be transferred to other four-year educational institutions.

The Cosmetology program will be taught from the international cosmetology curriculum, Pivot Point. According to Pivot-Point.com, Pivot Point has provided the best hair and beauty education in the United States. Cunningham shared that Pivot Point curriculum is and has been well respected in the cosmetology community for more than 50 years.

According to the Cosmetology program’s online frequently asked questions and answers, the estimated cost of the five semester program is $7,300. These costs include tuition, fees, uniforms, textbooks and the student cosmetology kit. The program does accept financial aid. Eligible students must have a 2.0 GPA or higher to enter the program.

CPCC’s Cosmetology program will have 40 seats every fall and spring semester for full-time students. “We still have seats available for the fall,” said Cunningham. Classes are filling fast and will be held at the completely renovated City View Center, located at 1609 Alleghany Street, Charlotte, NC 28208. Classes will be held Tuesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. “Completion of the new renovations will be on July 19,” said Cunningham.

Students will also provide the public with hair, skin and nail services at discounted rates after they have completed 300 practice classroom hours at the City View Center under the supervision of licensed instructors. “City View Center will be a 50-salon chair clinic,” said Cunningham. Services will include cutting, coloring, perming and styling hair. “Students will learn to work with all nationalities of  hair,” said Cunningham. Students will also provide facial services of deep cleaning, makeup application, eye brow waxing, as well as nail care services with real or acrylic nails and nail art.

Cunningham said CPCC will work with the job placement office after students have received their Cosmetology degrees. “I’m sure salons looking for successful graduates with exceptional guest relation skills will be attracted to CPCC’s Cosmetology graduates,” said Cunningham. Cunningham said this program is for students who like to be around people and make people feel good about themselves. “At some point this industry touches everyone in some way,” said Cunningham.

Do You Have Priority Registration?

Registration is coming next Friday; do you have Priority Registration?

The purpose of priority registration dates is to help ensure that you can get the classes you need to graduate on time. Currently enrolled students in college level programs of study will be able to register first!

Note that if you are on Academic Probation you will not be able to register for classes until the current semester grades are posted. This means that you will not be able to take advantage of priority registration. Students on Academic Warning must see their advisor to be able to register.

You will receive your assigned registration date through your CPCC email account. Check your email for your registration date and plan ahead to register as soon as possible for the best course selection!

Attention Students: Is the Class You Wanted Full?

Is the Class You Wanted Full?

Is the Class You Wanted Full?

Did you know that you are probably eligible to take other general education courses? For example, many students believe that History 131 must be completed before they can take History 132. In fact, a student can take either course. The same is true for HIS 111 and 112, English 231 and English 232, ART 114 and 115 and a whole host of other options.

Students can see if a course has prerequisites, as well as other important information, by checking the course catalog here. Good places to look are:

  • Course descriptions, to see if a given course has prerequisites (pgs. 220 forward)
  • General education course options, to see what may be available for you to take (pgs. 182 & 183)
  • Transfer Degree course options, if you’re looking to transfer to a senior institution (pgs. 190-203)

Also, if you’re looking to transfer, you might find an AA (Associate in Arts) checklist helpful, which you can find here.

If unsure of which general education course is required for your degree, or if you’ve met the correct prerequisite, please consult your faculty or professional advisor. You can find your assigned faculty advisor here.
