ATTENDANCE POLICY

Each student that enrolls in the School signs an agreement to attend school for a specific amount of hours each week.  However the School understands that at times other things may take precedence and is willing to make allowances for these absences. Ten absences per year are written into the students contract, however this does not include the students Friday or Saturday. In the event a student misses the last day of their contracted week, they will pay a fine of $4.16 for each hour missed before returning to school. Students are subject to a double fine the day before and after a holiday, when absent.

When a student arrives at school they are provided with a computerized time card, which records the proper time. Students are totally responsible for clocking themselves in and out. Those students failing to use the time clock will not have hours corrected, and are subject to losing that portion of time.  Students attending over 4 hours per day are allotted a thirty minute break somewhere in the middle of the day, designated by the Director, which they will clock out for. When a student leaves the school she will also clock out.  This record of time attended will be rounded to the nearest quarter hour and reported to the Board.  Hours are not changed with out the written authority of the Board.

Students arriving later than five minutes after Theory Class or 9:00 AM will not be permitted to clock in until 10:00 that day. More than five late arrivals in a month constitute probation.

The School will permit a Student one (1) leave of absence for a period not to exceed sixty days during enrollment.  This absence must be requested in writing prior to the absence being excused unless there are extenuating circumstances such as auto accidents.  These circumstances will be judged individually.

Other absences that may be excused by the School must be verifiable special circumstances such as but not limited to: 1) Medical problems 2) Severe weather conditions that prevent safe travel.  The school director, under special circumstances that will be documented and placed in the students file, may consider other absences excused on individual basis.

ATTENDANCE PROGRESS

Each student will be monitored at the end of each month to determine if the student is within the maximum time frames.  Students must attend an accumulative 88% of the scheduled hours to maintain satisfactory attendance.

Each student will be evaluated for Satisfactory Progress at 300-450-900 and 1350 hours.  All practical, written exams and cumulative % of attendance will be evaluated at this time.  Students meeting the minimum requirements at evaluation will be considered making Satisfactory Progress until the next evaluation.

ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Each student will be monitored at the end of each month to determine if the student is completing the theory, practical (practical and clinical are synonymous) and other school assigned projects.  The factors to be evaluated in each course are as established by the BOARD.  These requirements are listed in the catalog. Students may be warned if their work begins slipping.

At the end of the freshman term “300 hours” each student will be administered a comprehensive practical and theory exam that will cover all parts of the material taught in the freshman department.

The grading scale which is to be used for theory, practical and sanitation is outlined below:

 A  – 95-100

 B  – 90-95

 C  – 86-89

 D-   80-85

At the end of the grading period all grades for the student will be averaged together to determine the overall academic grade.  Progress reports are monitored monthly.

FAILING: Anything below 80%

GENERAL

A student will be considered to be making satisfactory progress as long as all grades are 80% or above and the minimum number of hours and theory work for the period are completed within the maximum time frame required.  Students must meet 88% accumulative attendance and academic minimum standards during each grading period to remain in satisfactory progress.

A student who does not meet the minimum requirements during a grading period will be placed on probation and re-evaluated at the next scheduled evaluation.  The student is still considered to be making satisfactory progress until failing to meet the minimum standards for two consecutive grading periods.  A student must meet or exceed the minimum standards for one full grading period in order to be removed from the probation status or to achieve satisfactory progress status.  A student who does not achieve satisfactory progress for two consecutive grading periods is no longer eligible for Title IV assistance A student  who does not achieve academic progress for two consecutive grading periods will be terminated from the program.

 A student whose training is interrupted due to unsatisfactory progress who wishes to re-enter, may after 30 days receive individual counseling from the School Manager after which a decision will be made regarding the student’s re-entry to school.

To re-establish eligibility for federal funds after the student re-enters the student will be monitored after 30 days to determine if they are making satisfactory progress (80% grade average and 88% cumulative percentage of attendance). Financial Aid will be re-instated when the student meets these minimums.

Re-Establish Eligibility: A student whose financial aid is terminated due to unsatisfactory progress who wishes to re-establish eligibility for financial aid must complete 88% cumulative percentage of attendance and a 80% grade average for that month. At this time, the student will be evaluated to determine if they are making satisfactory progress. Students making satisfactory progress will be re-instated with financial aid.

Course incomplete, repetitions, and non-credit remedial courses will have no effect on these satisfactory progress standards.

A student who interrupts training for less than 60 consecutive days will remain in the same progress status upon return to school.  When a student who withdraws from the course and returns to school after 60 days from interruption, the student will be given credit for all previous hours, successful achievements, and will remain in the same progress status upon return to school.

In the event a student fails to make satisfactory progress the student and has mitigating circumstances that the student feels affected their progress, is allowed to make an appeal to a board of at least two staff members and one member of the Advisory Board. The appeal must be in writing and received by the school (attention: Ann Halloran) 7 working days from the receipt of the probation notice. The school will respond 7 days after the appeal hearing telling if the appeal is granted or denied.

MAKE-UP WORK

Each student who is absent from school will eventually miss some work that must be accomplished in order to graduate.  All lessons and examinations are taught on a schedule.  Therefore it is necessary to schedule periods of time during which a student can make up the necessary work.

All make-up work will be done in the next WEEK.  Instructors prior to must approve all work and after the make-up work is accomplished.

REFUND POLICY

  • If the student (or parent/guardian) cancels his or her enrollment, in writing, within three working business days of signing the enrollment agreement contract, all money collected by the school shall be refunded.  The postmark on the written notification will determine the date of cancellation or on the date the cancellation is delivered to the school administrator.
  • If the student cancels enrollment after three working days after signing but prior to entering classes, the student will be refunded all money paid to the school less the enrollment or registration fee, not to exceed $100.00.  All school supplies must be returned as new before such refund is made. Refunds, when due, will be made without requiring a request from the student within 30 days of the students last day of attendance.
  • For students who enroll and attend classes, the following schedule of charges or refunds will prevail:

1)      After the first day of classes and during the first 10% of the period of financial obligation, the institution shall refund at least 90% of the tuition.

2)      After the first 10% of the period of obligation, and until the end of the first 25% of the period of obligation, the institution shall refund at least 50% of the tuition.

4)      After the first 50% of the period of obligation, the institution shall retain all of the tuition.

Policies for granting of previous training shall not impact the above mentioned refund policies.

NOTE:  Students receiving assistance from Federal Title IV programs may be eligible for statutory pro-rata refunds according to federal regulations provided they have completed less than 60% of the first period for which they are charged.  Samples of refund are available on request.

Enrollment time is defined as the time elapsed between the actual starting time and the date of the students last day of physical attendance in the school. In the event the student does not withdraw formally, the withdrawal occurs 10 days after the last day of attendance.

Any money to be refunded to the student will be paid within 30 days of the formal cancellation by the student or formal termination by the school, which shall occur no more than 30 days from the last day of physical attendance, or in the case of a leave of absence, the documented date of return.

After a student signs the enrollment agreement and purchases a kit, books and or other supplies, said items become the exclusive property of the student and no refund will be due the said student. Kits are non-returnable and non-refundable for health and sanitary reasons.

If for any reason the school is closed and can no longer offer instruction after a student has enrolled, the student shall be entitled to a pro-rata refund of tuition only.

If a course is canceled subsequent to enrollment, the school shall, at its option: (1) Provide a full refund of all money paid, (2) Provide completion of the course.

Students who terminate prior to completion of the course will be charged a $100.00 termination fee.

RETURN OF TITLE IV FUNDS: 

      1). A Students percentage of Title IV aid earn is calculated.

2).  Then the amount of the Title I V aid is determined (Note: Any student who withdraws at any point after the 60% point, in the payment period has earned 100% of their Title IV aid.

3). The amount of Title IV aid that must be returned is determined.

4). The amount of unearned Title IV aid that must be returned by the school is calculated.

5.) Finally, the amount of unearned Title IV aid that must be returned by the student is determined. (Note: If it is determined that a student must return a portion of Title IV aid received, the school will notify the appropriate agency or student within thirty days of the determination that the student withdrew from school.

6.) If it is determined that the amount of aid dispersed to the student is less than the amount of the aid the student has earned, then a Post-Withdrawal Disbursement is made to receive the amount of aid earned by the student.

7.) All repayments to the financial assistance programs will be paid in the full

In this order: 1st. Title IV loan programs. 2nd. Title IV Grant programs. 3rd. State programs. 4th. Private scholarships. 5th. To the student.

NOTE: The return of Title IV calculation may result in funds that have already posted to the student account being returned. Students then assume the responsibility for payment on their account balance. Generally a withdrawal from a program will result in an outstanding balance with Lexington Beauty College. Balances unpaid after a student leaves a program may be submitted to a collection agency for further collection of debt.

DISCRIMINATION

It is the policy of this school to admit qualified persons who will benefit from the education provided.  We feel that the field of cosmetology offers many opportunities to men and women from all walks of life; therefore, we do not practice discrimination on the basis of race, sex, creed, religion, color, ethnic origin or age.  To do so would be a disservice to the community, which we serve.

VETERANS POLICY

If the student is an honorable discharged veteran of the armed forces or a dependant of a deceased or disabled veteran, he/she may be able to apply for veterans educational benefits. For more information on these benefits and to see if you are eligible, contact the Veterans Administration Office.

 Partial Terms are assessed in terms of weeks scheduled on contract. Partial hour students are charged $5.00 per hour scheduled based on how many weeks contracted. Over contract fees are also $5.00 per hour accrued on a weekly basis.

PAYMENT for the above items that are purchased from the school is due on or before the first day of school. For those who are unable to make full payment, other arrangements may be made with approval in advance.

A termination fee of $100.00 will be assessed when a student fails to complete the course.

*Pell Grant Hours:  If a student attends 40 hours per week, the student will complete the first academic year of 900 hours in less than thirty weeks. Therefore, the student will be reduced in a pro-ration of time to complete the first thirty weeks divided by thirty weeks. For example if a student attended 40 hours per week they would complete the first academic year in approximately 23 weeks. Therefore, the Pell grant would be reduced by 23/30=76.6%. The student would then receive only 76.6% of the Pell grant award for the first 900 hours. The second year 901-1800 would be reduced in an equal manner.

OVERTIME: Students with multiple enrollments with LBC must settle out their previous contract, and pay any overtime on that contract before entering into a new contract with the school.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:  SCHOOL’S GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

In accordance with the institution’s mission statement, Lexington Beauty College will make every attempt to resolve any student complaint that is not frivolous or without merit.  Complaint procedures will be included in new student orientation, thereby assuring that all students know the steps to follow should they desire to register a complaint at any time.
