The table provides information to identify whether this program meets the specific state, province, or territory educational requirements for the states and provinces listed below. In the column titled “Does This Program Meet State Educational Requirements?” the disclosure for that state is provided as “Meets State Educational Requirements”, “Does Not Meet State Educational Requirements”, or “No Determination Has Been Made”. This disclosure is unique to the specific state for each row on the table.

It’s important to note that even if the program meets the educational requirements, licensure may also require acceptance to a registry, background checks, or meeting physical standard requirements. Students are advised to check with the agency to identify an exact set of requirements that extend above the educational requirements.

States that participate in the National Interstate Council of State Boards of Cosmetology utilize national written and practical examinations for entrance to the profession of cosmetology. Membership encourages reciprocity, but some states may place additional requirements prior to granting reciprocity.
