Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP):

The Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy is consistently applied to all students enrolled at the school. It is printed in the catalog to ensure that all students receive a copy prior to enrollment. This policy is established and maintained for all students in attendance at the school enrolled in a Council on Occupational Education (COE) approved program and/or receiving Title IV funds. This policy complies with the guidelines established by The Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the federal regulations established by the United States Department of Education
Evaluation Periods
Students are evaluated for Satisfactory Academic Progress as follows:
Barbering 1000 clocked (actual) hours
Teacher Training 750 clocked (actual) hours
*Transfer Students- Midpoint of the contracted hours or the established evaluation periods, whichever comes first.
Evaluations will determine if the student has met the minimum requirements for satisfactory academic progress. The frequency of evaluations ensures that students have had at least one evaluation by the midpoint in the course.
Attendance Progress Evaluations

Students are required to attend a minimum of 67% of the hours possible based on the applicable attendance schedule to be considered maintaining satisfactory attendance progress. Evaluations are conducted at the end of each evaluation period to determine if the student has met the minimum requirements. The attendance percentage is determined by dividing the total hours accrued by the total number of hours scheduled. At the end of each evaluation period, the school will determine if the student has maintained at least 67% cumulative attendance since the beginning of the course which indicates that, given the same attendance rate, the student will graduate within the maximum time frame allowed.
