Online Cosmetology Exams Now Offered Through Virtual Process

Associated Skin Care Professionals, Associated Hair Professionals, and Associated Nail Professionals received correspondence from the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations (TDLR) regarding cosmetology examinations. For the benefit of Texas cosmetology schools, we have attached the information from TDLR below:

“Starting on March 8, 2021, candidates for the Cosmetology written examinations will be able to choose to take a traditional written examination at one of 22 PSI site locations across Texas or to take an examination through a virtual online process offered by PSI. This process, known as e-exams, will provide a faster, safer and more convenient process for candidates to obtain a license from TDLR.

E-exams are conducted in a virtual environment using the test taker’s computer, webcam video and audio to create a secure and controlled testing environment. A remote proctor monitors the examination and ensures the test taker’s identity using sophisticated technology.
