New Students

Acceptance to Midwest College of Cosmetology is partially based on a student’s high school record and ACT scores. Campus visits are strongly recommended. In select cases, a personal statement, an interview with the Director of Admissions and Director of MCC, and academic or professional letters of recommendation may be required.

Transfer Students

Transfer student applications can be submitted for any of the cosmetology program start dates. Students who apply should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 and be eligible to return to their previous institution(s). (Students who are on probation at their previous institutions may be provisionally admitted upon review and decision by the Director of Admissions.) In select cases, a personal statement, an interview with the Director of Admissions and Director of MCC, and academic or professional letters of recommendation may be required.  All transfer hours for cosmetology will be added on at the end of the program after students have completed the MCC curriculum.

Non Traditional Students (21 years or older)

Non-traditional students are not required to submit ACT scores, but must submit high school and college transcripts, a resume, and in some cases academic or professional letters of recommendation may be required.

PLEASE NOTE: Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis until classes are full. If a class is full, an applicant may be wait listed until space becomes available. Students are encouraged to apply early as spaces are limited.
