Students must complete all required competencies and clock hours as well as receive a score of 80% or higher in the Cosmetology Instructor Program in order to be eligible to apply for a certificate of competency. However, a certificate of competency does not guarantee graduates are an Instructor in any state. Students must pass the Arizona State Board licensing exam in order to teach in Arizona. The Arizona State Board of Cosmetology can deny an application should it be determined that a candidate does not meet the requirements for citizenship and/or high school education requirements. If students have any concerns meeting these requirements, students are strongly encouraged to contact the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology directly via its website: HTTPS://BOC.AZ.GOV, give full disclosure of the situation and save any written response. GateWay Community College is not liable for graduates who do not receive an Arizona Instructor License and will not give refunds for tuition and fees.
