Nuvo College of Cosmetology applicants must visit and tour the college before enrolling. We require parents of dependent students to visit Nuvo College and co-sign enrollment paperwork. Applicants may visit Nuvo College anytime during our business hours. Class size is limited so perspective students should apply for admission as early as possible. Applicants who cannot visit the campus may arrange an interview with an admissions representative at their high school by contacting the Nuvo College’s admissions office.

The Instructor Course is offered to students who have a valid license (in the field they wish to teach) with a minimum of one year of experience in a licensed facility. The State of Michigan requires that Licensees in charge of a cosmetology establishment to possess at least one year of licensed work experience and be at least 18 years of age. Taking that into consideration we decided that our student instructors would be more prepared for the job market if we required a minimum of one year in the field. Our school is designed to exceed entry level or basic skills. 

Perspective students will be considered for admissions who are of good moral character; who are in good physical and mental condition and have proof that she/he is at least 17 years of age or older.
