CPCC offers to guide displaced Regency cosmetology students who still want to reach their academic goals

Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) is ready to help students who are displaced following today’s announcement by Regency Beauty Institute that it will be permanently closing – effective yesterday (Sept. 28, 2016) – and this affects all of the institute’s 79 campuses, including the campus in Charlotte.

Students who are impacted by the Regency Beauty Institute closings are encouraged to consider contacting CPCC to see how the college can help them reach their cosmetology educational and career goals. CPCC cosmetology students learn from experienced instructors using Pivot Point® curriculum. They’re able to channel their passion for the beauty industry into developing knowledge and skills needed to earn an associate degree (Associate in Applied Science Degree – Cosmetology) and sit for the North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Arts Licensing Exam.

Displaced Regency Beauty Institute students can contact Catherine Cunningham at Catherine.cunningham@cpcc.edu or 704.330.5451 to learn more. It is likely that some of the students’ current class credit hours may transfer into CPCC’s cosmetology program.

Regency Beauty Institute’s website provides additional information for displaced students regarding their transcripts, credits and financial aid.

It’s not too late for students to possibly register for the current fall semester at CPCC for some general education courses required for all degrees, as the college has an 8-week short session beginning October 12 (short session classes provide the same number of college credits as 16-week classes, they’re just offered in a condensed timeframe). CPCC’s spring 2017 semester will begin in early January.
