    The physical and intellectual demands of being an esthetician are not to be taken lightly, because a rewarding career usually comes at a price. Students at Missouri College of Cosmetology are required to be on their feet during 75% of the courses. If you have a history or suspicion of physical limitations to chemical odors, standing, bending, stooping, light lifting, or sitting, please consult your physician before entering training. Most students do not have any problems completing the program when maintaining a balanced lifestyle.
    If you have the passion, intensity, and physical ability to study esthetics, we recommend contacting us today to begin your journey.

    Esthetics training is broken down into 5 different terms, followed by a final exam. The terms focus on different areas of training that an esthetics student will need in order to become a successful professional. Here is a short synopsis of the different esthetics terms:

    As the terrible pick-up line goes, “we hate to see you go, but we love to watch you leave.” Missouri College of Cosmetology wants to see all of our students cross our threshold with a diploma and begin their new lives as successful cosmetologists. Here is what you’ll need:

  • Complete the required number of hours (750).
  • Pass the final college theory exam and state law exam with a score of at least 80%.
  • Complete full payment of all tuition and fees owed to Missouri College of Cosmetology.

    Step 1 is graduation, but we all know stairs never stop at just step one. Step 2 is earning a Missouri license, and we have outlined how to complete this step here:

    After graduation, you should submit an Application for Examination/Temporary Permit to our main office, which will be submitted by us to the State Board.

    Register with PCS Online (before or after you are deemed eligible by the board) to take the Missouri State Board of Cosmetology and Licensing Exam. To check the current fee amount, please visit Professional Credential Services online or call them at 888.822.3272.

    Make sure to register with your full legal name as it appears on your government issued identification.

    Exam fees will be collected at the time of online registration.

    Once PCS receives notification form the state board office, they will approve a candidate’s registration for testing. You will receive an email with a Theory Notification, including an Authorization to Test (ATT) Letter, within two business days after approval and a Practical Notification ten days prior to your pre-selected practical examination date.

    Schedule your written theory evaluation with IQT Testing.

    Pass the exams with a score of at least 75%.

    *Note: If you do not receive an email notification in the time frame outlined for the Theory Notification or the Practical Notification, it is your responsibility to contact PCS at 888.822.3272 to receive examination information.

    If you’re nervous about the exam or want some extra practice, a mock board exam is offered to each student. It is our goal here to detect any exam weaknesses prior to your test date, so we can help you practice and be the best that you can be on your exam day.
