Class Scheduling

All courses and schedules are available on a minimum class start. Classes may be cancelled, postponed or rescheduled due to class, faculty or instructor scheduling conflict, as well as in the case of insufficient enrollment. The Esthetic Institute reserves the right to make said changes without prior notice. The School offers makeup hours for students enrolled in licensure classes who would like to make up missed hours. 

The school’s program offerings are consistent with its stated purpose, to provide career focused education that inspires and empowers our diverse student body to succeed in employment with confident, professional skills in the exciting, growing field of esthetics.

Curriculum & Program Outlines
All programs offered by The Esthetic Institute follow similar procedures in that the same instructional methods apply and the same grading procedures are followed for each program. Those policies are stated here and considered to be an integral part of each of the program outlines contained in this section of the catalog


The clock hour education is provided through a sequential set of learning steps which address specific tasks necessary for state board preparation, graduation and job entry level skills. Clinic equipment, implements, and products are comparable to those used in the industry. Each student will receive instruction that relates to the performance of useful, creative, and productive career oriented activities. The course is presented through comprehensive lesson plans which reflect effective educational methods. Subjects are presented by means of interactive lecture, online lecture, demonstration, cooperative learning, labs, student salon activities, and student participation. Audio-visual aids, guest speakers, field trips, projects, activities, and other related learning methods are used in the course.

All educational programs at the Esthetic Institute are taught in English.
