How much labor time to replace head gasket?


I have a 2001 jeep cherokee with a straight 6 and a blown head gasket..

I have to admit I'm a lil poor.. :/
BUT, I have been doing some research and I found an automotive school where students work on cars for $25/hr + cost of parts (head gaskets are cheap though)

How much labor time does it usually take for the following;
-replace blown head gasket
-fluids clean-up
-if heads are warped, how much more labor time?

The school said its cheap, but it might take a little extra time since they're students.. I was think to add an extra 4 or 5 hours to my estimated average labor time..

Can anyone help?

(Also, I've been looking into enrolling in automotive myself anyways and if I do, this particular school will let my classmates and I fix my jeep for free.. Its an expensive school though, so I want to eliminate that option for now)
