Dr. Stephen Cullen of Gila Community College announces a significant reduction in course fees for the Gila Community College Cosmetology Academy (GCCCA) effective July 1, 2013. This means a total cost reduction of more than 50% for both the Cosmetology and Nail Technician Programs.

“We are able to offer this significant savings to students and their families who wish to enroll in the one-year program,” Cullen said. “This is a result of sound fiscal management and our continued commitment to the deserving adult learners of Gila County.”

The training provides the opportunity to prepare for the state exam and transitioning in the beauty industry. The curriculum is the same as previously offered. The curriculum is approved through Eastern Arizona College.

The costs reductions are included in the required student kits and course fees. The cost reductions will make the program more affordable for students and within financial aid awards for those who qualify through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). FAFSA is a program that provides students with financial assistance.

There is a call for admissions for the program on July 9th at 6:00 p.m. at the Gila Pueblo Campus. For more information pertaining to the program, contact Patti Bocardo at 928-425-8481. Gila Community College remains committed to providing viable workforce training to all of Gila County.
