STUDENT POLICIES & PROCEDURES
A candidate for graduation must satisfy the following requirements:
- Satisfactorily complete assignments and required clock hours based on their program.
- Pay any tuition and fees owed to Mc Barber Academy.
Upon successful completion of all graduation requirements of the Barbering Program the students will receive a diploma.
Students are encouraged to strive for an attendance rate of 80% out of 100%. Attendance is monitored monthly.
A time clock is the official method of verification of time accumulated in the Barbering Program at Mc Barber Academy. It is solely the student’s responsibility to clock in/out correctly as well as sign in/out for breaks and school attendance.
Mc Barber Academy reserves the right to request documentation to support any tardy, absence or early dismissal from the student before permitting the student to return to school.
Students will be required to make up all assignments, exams or other work missed as the result of any excused or unexcused absence. The student must make arrangements with the instructor to ensure that all work is made-up. The Instructor may assign additional outside make-up work if deemed appropriate. Arrangements to take a missed exam must be made with the Instructor and will typically take place at the end of week. All arrangements are subject to approval by the Instructor.
Satisfactory Academic Progress
The Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP) is consistently applied to all students enrolled in the Barbering program whether participating in Title IV programs or not. It is printed in the catalog, which is available on the school’s website, to ensure that all students receive a copy prior to the first day of class. The policy complies with the guidelines established by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS) and the federal regulations established by the United States Department of Education (DOE)
Minimum Satisfactory Progress Levels for Attendance
Students are expected to maintain at least an 80% cumulative attendance average.
Evaluations are based on the cumulative attendance percentage as of the last day within the evaluation period. The attendance percentage is determined by dividing the total hours earned by the total number of hours scheduled. The student’s start month in school will be counted as the first month of the evaluation period. For partial months, scheduled hours will be calculated by multiplying the number of scheduled days by the number of hours scheduled each day (i.e., 7 clock hours or 4 clock hours). At the end of each evaluation period, the school will determine if the student has maintained at least 80% cumulative attendance since the beginning of enrollment which indicates that, given the same attendance rate, the student will graduate within the maximum time frame allowed.
Minimum Satisfactory Progress Levels for Academics
Students are expected to maintain at least 80% cumulative academic average.
The qualitative element used to determine academic progress is a reasonable system of grades as determined by assigned academic learning. Students are assigned academic learning and practical experiences. Academic learning is evaluated after each unit of study. Practical assignments (i.e., performances sheets) are evaluated as completed and counted toward course completion (the computer system will reflect completion of the practical assignment as a 100% rating). Practical skills are evaluated according to text procedures and set forth in practical skills evaluation criteria adopted by the school. Students must maintain a written grade average of 80% and pass a written and practical exam prior to advancing to the next academic level (i.e., basic, intermediate, and advanced). Students must make up failed or missed tests and incomplete assignments. Grading is based upon the following scale:
- 80 – 100 A/Pass/Yes/Excellent
- Below 80 U/Fail/No Unsatisfactory
Maximum Time for Completion: maximum time (which does not exceed 125% of the course length) allowed for students to complete the Barbering Program at satisfactory academic progress as stated below:
Class A Barber (Full-time)- 8 months/1000 hrs
Barbering (Part-time)-12 months/1000 hrs
Progress disciplinary Procedure
Warning & Probation
Warning: Students not making satisfactory progress in either area during an unofficial grading period will receive a warning that his/her performance does not meet the required level. Students who fail to meet minimum requirements for attendance and/or academic progress during an evaluation period are place on warning and considered to be making satisfactory progress during the warning period. The student will be advised in writing on the actions required to attain satisfactory academic progress by the next evaluation. If at the end of the warning period, the student has still not met both the attendance and academic requirements, he/she may be placed on probation and, if applicable, students may be deemed ineligible to receive financial assistance.
Probation: Students who fail to meet minimum requirements for attendance and/or academic progress after the warning (evaluation) period may be placed on probation and considered to be making satisfactory progress while during the first probationary period, if the student appeals the decision, and prevails upon appeal. Additionally, only students who have the ability to meet the Satisfactory Progress Policy standards by the end of the evaluation period may be on probation. The student will be advised in writing on the actions required to attain satisfactory academic progress by the next evaluation. If at the end of the probationary period, the student has not met both the attendance and academic requirements, he/she will be determined as NOT making satisfactory academic progress and, if applicable, students will not be deemed eligible to receive financial assistance and may be terminated from Mc Barber Academy.
Leave of Absence (LOA)
A student is allowed (2) leaves of absence unless mitigating circumstances require more. A student is responsible for contacting the Campus Director by phone or in person to seek approval. A student’s contract will be extended by the same number of days in the leave of absence. A leave of absence may range from one week to six months however it cannot exceed six months throughout the entire program
Interruptions, Course In-Completes
If enrollment is temporarily interrupted for a Leave of Absence, the student will return to school in the same progress status as prior to the leave of absence. Hours elapsed during a leave of absence will extend the student’s contract period by the same number of days taken in the leave of absence and will not be included in the student’s cumulative attendance percentage calculation. Students who withdraw prior to completion of the course and wish to re-enroll within six months of the withdrawal date will return in the same satisfactory academic progress status as at the time of withdrawal.
If a student is not determined to be making satisfactory academic progress, the student may appeal the determination. Appeals must be submitted in writing to Mc Barber Academy along with the supporting documentation stating the reason(s) why the determination should be reversed. A final determination will be issued to the student after the appeal has been evaluated by the Appeals Committee. If the student prevails upon appeal, the satisfactory academic progress determination will be reversed and financial assistance will be reinstated, if applicable. If an appeal is denied, the student will continue to follow the Progressive Disciplinary Procedures as outlined.
