Satisfactory Academic Report

Cosmetology 450, 900 & 1200 scheduled hours.

A minimum grade of 80% is required to maintain satisfactory progress.  The qualitative element used to determine academic progress is a reasonable system of grades as determined by assigned theory study.  Theory is evaluated after each unit of study.  Students must maintain a cumulative theory grade average of at least 80% and pass a final written exam prior to graduation. Students must make up failed or missed tests and incomplete assignments. Practical skills performances are counted toward course completion only when considered satisfactory or better.  If the performance does not meet satisfactory requirements it is not counted and the performance must be repeated.  Numerical grades are given on the following scale:


                 96% to 100%      Excellent

                 90% to 95%        Very Good

                 85% to 89%        Exceeds Minimum Standards 

                 80% to 84%        Satisfactory

                 Below 80%         Needs Improvement; Does Not Meet Standards

In accordance with federal regulations, when Title IV financial aid is involved, the calculated amount of the R2T4 Funds is allocated in the following order: Unsubsidized FFELP loans, Subsidized FFELP loans, Unsubsidized Direct Loans, Subsidized Direct Loans, Federal PLUS loans, Direct PLUSloans followed by Federal Pell Grants. The calculation steps are outlined in the following example:


Calculating Return Example

1.  Calculate the percentage of Title IV aid earned by the student by taking the hours scheduled to complete in the payment period, divided by the total hours in the payment period (excluding breaks of 5 days or more AND days the student was on an approved LOA)

210 (scheduled hours)  =  46.6% (% of payment period)
    450 (total hours)

2.  Calculate the amount of Title IV aid earned by the student by multiplying the percentage of Title IV aid earned times the total of the Title IV aid disbursed plus the Title IV aid that could have been disbursed for the payment period.

46.6 % X $2,805 = $1,307.13 (Amount of aid earned by student)

3.  If this amount is greater than the total Title IV aid disbursed for the payment period, a Post-Withdrawal Disbursement will be calculated; if the amount is less than the amount of Title IV aid disbursed, the difference will be returned to the Department of Education.
