Students should apply for admission as soon as possible in order to be officially accepted for a specific program and starting date. To apply, students should complete the Application Form and send it to the school or call for a priority appointment to visit the school and receive a tour of its facilities.
All applicants are required to complete a personal interview with an admissions representative. Parents and spouses are encouraged to attend. This gives applicants and their families an opportunity to see the school’s equipment and facilities and to ask questions relating to the academy’s curriculum and career objectives. Personal interviews also enable school administrators to determine whether an applicant is acceptable for enrollment into the program.
All applicants must be at least sixteen (16) years old.
If you are enrolling for the Esthetician Course, Dermacademy prefers the candidate for enrollment be a High School graduate or have the equivalency (G.E.D.).
A non-refundable $100.00 Registration and Enrollment Fee is required at the time of formal enrollment. Once an applicant has completed and submitted the Application and Enrollment Agreement, the school reviews the information and informs the applicant of its decision. If an applicant is not accepted, all fees paid to the school are refunded.
The following items must be completed and submitted at the time of enrollment:
- Proof of US Citizenship – Birth Certificate, Voter’s Registration Card, or US Passport
- Social Security Card
- Drivers License or Picture ID
The school reserves the right to reject applicants if the items listed above are not successfully completed.

No, No, No! In the United States, each state has an hourly educational requirement which you must meet. In North Carolina, the State Board of Cosmetic Arts requires that you have 600 hours of training. That is all the education necessary, which is the great thing about our programs. You are prepared for what you need to get employed in your area of study as quickly as possible! There is no “fluff” classes and extra degree requirements that keep you in school longer and cause you to spend extra money. Once you complete your program, you are ready to sit for the State Board examination and you are ready to become employed!
600 Hour Esthetician Program:
The student that completes the 600 clock hour Esthetician Training will receive a Diploma from the Academy. To receive their Esthetician License, the student must submit, through the Academy, an application to the North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Arts, along with a check or money order in the amount of $20 and pass the written and practical portions of the State Board Exam.
With licenses, each state differs with their requirements. If the state you are planning on moving to requires more clock hours than North Carolina, we allow the student to complete the extra hours necessary at no cost. It keeps you in school a little longer, but it is complimentary. Dermacademy will be more than happy to help you research the requirements for the state or country you may be considering relocating to, but it is ultimately the students responsibility to contact the transferring states Board for accurate information.
