Currently licensed aestheticians may be eligible for advanced standing. Graduates of the MATC Cosmetology technical diploma program who plan to complete this Aesthetician program may transfer credits from duplicate courses.

In addition to tuition and textbooks, students will need to purchase a tool/equipment kit.
