            EMERGENCY RESPONSE & EVACUATION PROCEDURES
Federal Regulations require that the institution have in place a policy and procedure that
describes how the institution will immediately notify the campus community upon the confirmation
of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or
safety of students or staff occurring on the campus, unless said notification compromises efforts
to contain the emergency. Upon acceptance to this institution the required policy and procedures
will be made available in a handbook to each student on the day of Orientation. Should an
immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff occur on campus, the institution’s
Administrative Staff will handle all necessary campus notification, without delay, and will initiate
the notification system. Phone systems with availability to call 911 are in all classrooms, and
have complete fire, sprinkler and burglary alarm systems in place for student and faculty safety.
A test of these systems will occur periodically, with or without notice.

that fall into this category to your instructor or directly to the Administration as soon as possible.



                   PLACEMENT AND EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS

ever increasing dollars spent in the beauty industry, our graduates have excellent opportunity to
obtain a position in the field in which they are training, if they are highly motivated, and are ready
to seriously work towards learning their chosen profession.
No school, however, can absolutely guarantee employment. This depends entirely upon each
student. All inquires from area salons needing stylists, nail technicians are posted on a Job
Placement Bulletin Board located in the Student Lounge.

student reaches their programs pre-set evaluation periods. For Cosmetology students it will be at
450, 900, and 1800 scheduled hours. For Nail Technology students it will be at 120 and 300
scheduled hours. Each student is provided with a minimum of two written Evaluations of
Progress Reports during their program period. The Evaluation of Progress Report will measure
performance in academics based on grades received and will show their attendance progress
based on their percentage of cumulative actual hours to scheduled hours. NOTE: Students may
receive an informal report card on a monthly basis that shows academic and attendance
progress.

                                 SATISFACTORY PROGRESS

Satisfactory Progress is established on a formal Evaluation of Progress Report when a student
meets the minimum of 75% average in academic work and a minimum of 67% attendance in
accordance with the following chart:

Cosmetology Students Scheduled Hours 450 900 1800
Minimum Hours Required
(67% of Scheduled Hours) 302, 603, 804

Nail Technician Students Scheduled Hours 120, 300
Minimum Hours Required
(67% of Scheduled Hours) 80, 160

Students that meet the minimum requirements at evaluation will be considered making
satisfactory progress until the next scheduled evaluation. In order for a student to be considered
making satisfactory progress as of program mid-point, the student must meet both attendance
and academic minimum requirements on at least one evaluation by the mid-point of the program.
Cosmetology students failing to meet minimum progress requirements at an evaluation period will
be placed on probation with the opportunity to meet minimum requirements at their next


                                               25
scheduled evaluation period.


                                            PROBATION
During probation, students are considered to be making satisfactory progress and financial aid
funds will be dispersed to eligible students. At the end of the probationary period the student’s
progress will be re-evaluated. If the student is meeting minimum requirements, he/she will be
removed from probationary status. Any student failing to meet minimum satisfactory progress will
be returned to probation until the next scheduled evaluation. Each probation period is the length
of that student's program pre-set evaluation period. Programs of 1800 hours have a maximum of
(2) evaluation period and all other programs have only one (1) evaluation period.


                                         APPEAL PROCESS
Students, who may have been terminated after failing to achieve minimum requirements, may
appeal this determination. The student must submit a written appeal to the Administrative
Offices, along with any supporting documentation, reasons why the decision to terminate should
be reversed, and a request for a re-evaluation of progress. This appeal must be received in the
Administrative Offices within five (5) business days of termination. Should a student fail to appeal
this decision, the decision to terminate will stand. An appeal hearing will take place within five (5)
days of receipt of the written appeal. This hearing will be attended by the student,
parents/guardian (if student is a dependent minor), the student’s instructor, and a school
Administrative Staff Member and the Director of Education. A decision on the student’s appeal
will be made within three (3) business days by the attending Administrative Staff Member and will
be communicated to the student in writing. This decision will be final. Should a student prevail
upon his/her appeal and be determined as making satisfactory progress, the student will be
automatically re- entered in the program and financial aid funds will be re-instated to eligible
students.



                                    LEAVE OF ABSENCE
The maximum time limit for a student taking a leave of absence is 180 days. A leave of absence
may extend the student’s contract period and maximum time frame by the same number of days
                                   in the leave of absence.


                                   WITHDRAWALS/INCOMPLETE
Any student who withdraws from his/her contracted program or fails to complete his/her training,
will have a notice placed in their student file, as to the progress at the point of withdrawal.


                                           REPETITION
A student making satisfactory progress at the point of withdrawal may apply for re-enrollment at
the school and will be considered to be making satisfactory progress at the point of re-entry. A
student failing to meet minimum satisfactory requirements at the point of withdrawal will be placed
on probation for one (1) month when accepted for re-enrollment. (See Grounds for Dismissal for
additional requirements for those students wishing to re-enroll.) Non-credit remedial programs
have no effect upon a student’s satisfactory progress status in this school.


                                   ADVISING OF STUDENTS
Appointments can be scheduled on any school day, by students with the Administrative and/or
Instructing personnel who are in need of advising in academic, attendance, financial aid, etc.
Students are encouraged to seek advise with proper personnel if a problem exists that needs
attention. During advisory sessions things are discussed such as hours, services, tuition,


                                                 26

                                        FINANCIAL NEED
Federal Student Aid is awarded on the basis of financial need. Need is the difference between
your cost of education and an amount you and your family are expected to contribute toward your
education. A standard formula used for all applicants determines this amount, which is called the
Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The information you report on your aid application is used
in calculating your contribution. The amount left over after subtracting the expected contribution
from your cost of education is considered your financial need.

                                         SCHOLARSHIPS
Scholarships are available periodically throughout the year, depending on funding. See Financial
Aid counselors for details to qualify.



                CAREERS IN COSMETOLOGY-NAILS-SKIN CARE &
                            MASSAGE THERAPY

                 Before enrolling please read the following carefully
Nature of the Work, Working Conditions and Physical Requirements
Cosmetology: Advise patrons on how to care for their hair. Frequently, they straighten
permanent wave or cut a patron’s hair to keep the style in shape. Cosmetologists may also
lighten or darken the color of the hair and may give manicures, pedicures, scalp and facial
treatments; provide make-up analysis for women; and clean and style wigs and hairpieces.

Nail Technicians: Advise patrons on how to care for their nails. They give manicures,
pedicures, apply artificial nails and apply/create nail art.

All professions make appointments and keep records of their regular patrons; hair color, skin or
nail conditions, or areas attended during a massage, etc. They also keep their work areas clean
and sanitized, as well as sanitizing all implements, towels and sheets that may have been used
during a service. Those who operate their own salons also have managerial duties which include
hiring and supervising workers, keeping records, and ordering supplies.

All professions generally work in clean, pleasant surroundings, with good lighting and comfortable
temperatures. Their work can be arduous and physically demanding because most must be on
their feet for long hours at a time and all must work with their hands, often times at shoulder level.
Many of the professions work more than 40 hours a week, including evenings and weekends
when beauty salons and spas are at their busiest.

Persons who want to become cosmetologists, nail technicians, skin care specialists or massage
therapists must have finger and wrist dexterity, range of motion for their arms and backs and in
several of the professions a sense of form and artistry. All should enjoy dealing with the public
and be willing and able to follow patrons’ instructions. Because the beauty industry is constantly
changing, keeping abreast of the latest fashions and beauty techniques, or current massage
modalities is a must. Business skills are important for those who plan to operate their own
salons.

Safety requirements/awareness for those interested in the programs of
cosmetology, nail technology; and skin care: be aware that they handle sharp objects (scissors,
razors, nippers, tweezers, etc) and need to take care not to cut themselves or their clients; all
tools must be sanitized and sterilized after every use due to blood born diseases; electrical
devices are used in all four professions, this includes massage therapy and caution needs to be
taken when handling electrical devices around water, electrical cords should be checked to make



                                                 28
sure they are not loose or frayed, nor kinked and are in good working order to prevent electrical
shocks; HIV awareness must be completed for all programs.

The following are excerpts from the JOB DEMAND IN THE COSMETOLOGY INDUSTRY, 2007
NATIONAL SURVEY conducted for NACCAS by John B. Lee, JBL Associates of Maryland.


                     JOB DEMAND IN THE COSMETOLOGY INDUSTRY, 2007
Key Findings
In January 2007, there were 1,682,641 professionals employed in the nation’s 370,215 beauty
salons, barber shops, skin care salons, and nail salons. The typical salon is a small full service
salon with 5.1 stations, 3 full-time professionals and 2 part-time professionals. Salon owners
report an average of 127 clients per week. Since 2003, the number of salons has increased, but
the average number of people they employ has declined. The notable change since 2003 is the
decline in job swirling. Fewer employees left their jobs, and the number of hires has also
declined. Specifically;

       The total number of salons is up by 18%,
       The number of chairs or workstations is unchanged,
       The number of employees leaving their positions is down 13%, and
       The number of new hires is down 15% since 2003. This figure is partially reflective of
         fewer employees changing Jobs and some salons down-sizing.


The salon industry is a job-seekers market. Some 53% of the salon owners reported that they
had job openings. More than 485,000 open positions were filled in 2006 with both experienced
salon professionals changing positions (62% of the new hires) and with inexperienced
professionals with less than one year’s experience (38% of the new hires). The supply does not
appear to be keeping up with demand. Approximately three-quarters of the salon owners who
looked for new employees in 2006 reported difficulty in finding qualified personnel.

Other Key Findings

     58% of salon owners classified their salon as a full-service salon, 17% as a haircutting
       salon, 4% as a nail salon and 7% as a barber shop.
     56% of salon employees work full time, 31% are part-time (20-35 hours), and 13% are low
       time (less than 20 hours).
     The average salary range, including tips, is about $30,000 - $48,000/year.
     Of the various specialties, the increasing demand for nail technicians appears to be the
       most substantial. Nail technicians make up only 9.7% of the current industry employees,
       and nearly 18% of the job openings are in that area.
