PROFESSIONAL ETHICS AND DUTIES

In the study and practice of being a professional, the student should be qualified in dealing with the public, to be respectful of others, be courteous, friendly and above all, be a good listener and not a gossip. The student must be conscientious and become proficient in all procedures. Students should also be aware that the cosmetology field involves the use and knowledge of chemicals, and is a very physical and demanding career that requires being on your feet for many hours.

FACILITIES

The School is located in a rapidly growing area in Warren, MI. It is comprised of over 5000 square feet, has a well-equipped skin care room, a nail specialist area, and a spacious cosmetology section. A student break room with a refrigerator, microwave, vending machines and separate student phone line is provided for the convenience of our students. We offer a private lecture room and an on-line computer to help students achieve their ultimate goals. Extensive video and periodical libraries as well as a dispensary add to an ideal educational experience. The School is equipped with telephones throughout the building for use in an emergency. The School is also equipped with fire extinguishers (appropriately marked) and a monitored camera system.

CAMPUS SECURITY

Bela’s School of Cosmetology has designated Michael Deutsch, Director, and Sherry Rice, Director of Operations, as the contact people for any issues relating to campus security. The School refers all campus law enforcement issues to Warren City Police Dept.(586-574-4700 non emergency and 911 emergency), since the School does not have private campus based security personnel. We recommend, in the evening, students leave in pairs or as a group. The parking lots are lit to help insure the safety of our students. We have not had any problems with student safety to date. The following are the Crime Statistics for the three (3) previous calendar school years (2011, 2012, and 2013):

STUDENT COMMITMENT AND FAIR CONSUMER RIGHTS

 

To assure that each student has carefully considered and evaluated all the information available,  Bela’s School of Cosmetology suggests the student review the following statements of Students Rights and Responsibilities and read the catalog which is available when visiting the school:

 

The school reserves the right to change School policies, procedures, standards of conduct, or practices without notice.

 

It is your responsibility to:

 

    • Review and consider all information about a school program before you enroll.

 

    • Read and understand all forms that you are asked to sign and keep copies of them.

 

    • Accept responsibility for the promissory note and all other agreements that you sign.

 

    • If you have a loan, notify the lender of changes in your name, address, or school status.

 

  • Know and comply with your School refund procedures.

    • About its programs, instructional laboratory, other physical facilities, and its faculty;

 

    • What the cost of attendance is and what its policies are on refunds to students who drop out;

 

    • How the school determines you are making satisfactory progress and what happens if you are not;

 

  • What special services and facilities are available to the handicapped?

 

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

 

Bela’s School of Cosmetology feels that students interested in pursuing a career in the beauty industry (cosmetology, nail tech, skin care) should consider all aspects of such a decision.  Persons who want to become professionals in these fields must:

 

    • Have finger dexterity and a sense of form and artistry;

 

    • Enjoy dealing with the public and be able to follow a client’s directions;

 

    • Keep up to date on the latest fashions and beauty techniques;

 

    • Work long hours while building a personal clientele in order to earn the desired income;

 

    • Make a strong commitment to the educational process and complete the course of study;

 

  • Learn skills necessary to operate a personal business.

 

In addition, applicants and students should be aware that:

 

    • The work can be arduous and physically demanding because of long hours standing with hands at shoulder level or sitting over a nail technician’s station or esthetician’s chair or bed.

 

    • A personal investment may be required for advertising and promotions such as printing of business cards.

 

    • There will be exposure to various chemicals and fumes that may cause allergic reactions or could be harmful if used incorrectly.

 

    • The practice of safety and sanitation is essential for effective and successful performance within the industry.

 

  • Methods of compensation may vary and may include straight salary, salary plus commission, straight commission, sliding scale commission, retail commission or independent contracting (renting space and equipment from an existing salon).

As reported by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences (NACCAS) the 2007 survey of annual cosmetology incomes and job demand in Michigan, results indicate that salons plan to hire 9641 new employees in the next year. The average annual salary for a salon professional in Michigan is $39,000.00. This amount does not include tips and gratuities.

 

 

 

EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE

 

Bela’s School of Cosmetology provides training in professional development toward the goal of preparing students for the workforce. Area job opportunities are posted on a bulletin board on an on-going basis. When a student nears graduation, the School will assist the student in placement interviews. However, no school can absolutely guarantee employment; this depends entirely upon each student. Our placement assistance is a commitment to our graduates and there is no charge for this service.

 

ADMISSION AND ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS

 

Bela’s School of Cosmetology does not discriminate in its employment, admission, instruction, or graduation policies on the basis of age, race, creed, color, religion, sex, financial status, national or ethnic origin or disability to the extent of the law. Each student enrolling must be above the compulsory age of 17; if the student is under the age of 18 they must have parent/guardian approval. The School does not make any effort to recruit students that are already attending or admitted to another school offering a similar program of study. The School requires that each student enrolling in the Cosmetology, Esthetician, Manicuring, and Cosmetology Instructor program must:

 

    • Complete an application for enrollment.

 

  • Provide proof of secondary education such as a high school diploma, a GED certificate, an official transcript showing secondary school completion, or a state certification of home-school completion.

Students who wish to re-enter within thirty days of the original withdrawal date will be charged for hours remaining plus a re-entry fee. Students who re-enter more than thirty days after the original exit date may be evaluated scholastically in the same manner as a transfer student to determine class level assignment. Tuition rates current at the time of re-entry will apply to hours remaining in the program. Satisfactory arrangements for payment of any balance owed under the previous enrollment must be made prior to re-entry. Students who withdraw from enrollment two (2) times may not be considered for re-enrollment. Re-entry students will be responsible for purchasing the required books, kits, and supplies to satisfy the training requirements in the applicable program.

 

Individuals wishing to transfer credits earned at other institutions will be tested by a member of our staff, and based on test results, if applicable, Bela’s School of Cosmetology may recognize all or part of the applicant’s previous training or work experience, provided said training is recognized by the Department of Labor and Economic Growth. Transfer students must comply with the class level assigned as a result of the scholastic evaluation. In addition, such students must meet all regular entrance and registration requirements. If approved for enrollment, tuition will be charged at the hourly rate for the course study at the time of enrollment plus the applicable registration fee. All applicants must purchase a kit, the applicable texts, and uniform according to the standard policy for full course students. Contact the school administration office or visit our website at www.mrbelas.com for applicable kit prices.

 

To be eligible to receive title IV funding a student must have obtained either a high school diploma or GED. If a student is denied admission to the school, their records will be destroyed.   All candidates will be informed of the responsibilities and dedication they must be willing to extend, in class and in the field in which they can be trained. Transfer students will be given credit in accordance with the regulations of the MI State Board of Cosmetology.

 

ADVISING

 

The School’s personnel are ready to be of assistance to student as needed.  Information and advice are available to students regarding licensure requirements, reciprocity, employment opportunities, opportunities for continuing education, financial assistance, referrals for professional assistance, and student progress within the course of study.  Any problems that may arise will be discussed privately.

ATTENDANCE

 

Students are expected to attend classes according to their assigned schedule. Full time students are scheduled to attend 30 hours weekly and part-time students are scheduled to attend 20 hours weekly.  Students are issued a computerized swipe card to be used for clocking in and out.  The computer records actual hours attended and does not round hours to any degree.  Thus the school gives appropriate credit for all hours attended.  In addition, the school does not add or deduct attendance hours as a penalty or reward.  Attendance is monitored on the 16th of each month to determine unofficial withdrawals that have been absent at least 15 calendar days at that time.

 

CHANGE OF ATTENDANCE POLICY

 

A student during their enrollment, if available, will be allowed to transfer their schedule one time.

 

Due to the revision of all documentation for attendance changes, the student will incur an administrative fee of $100.00 for such requests.

 

UNIFORMS AND KITS

 

The School requires a uniform consisting of the Bela’s School of Cosmetology issued pants, shirt, and apron. Students must wear tennis shoes or like footwear. Students may order additional uniforms at any time during their course of study, for a fee $85.00. Compliance with the published dress code is required at all times.  Students are preparing for a career in the beauty industry and are expected to be well groomed and professionally attired during the course of study. The School will provide the tools and implements required for completion of the program upon receipt of deposit.

 

MANDATORY HOURS

 

Each student is required to attend school on their designated service day:

 

                                    Full Time Students: Thursday

 

                                    Part Time Day and Evening Students: Saturday

 

These two (2) days are critical to the development of skills required for career success. If the student is receiving financial aid, the student’s account will be charged when an award becomes available. Students may be excused for the day for documented mitigating circumstances such as medical reasons or family emergencies; however, students must call in by 9:30 a.m. to ensure the excused absence will be granted.

 

TARDINESS

 

Arrive for all classes on time.  If more than 10 minutes late, a student will not be allowed to attend class or to clock in, unless they have documentation, medical or legal, verifying their excuse for tardiness.  A student with appropriate documentation may clock in up until 11:00 a.m. (Full-time students) or 5:30 p.m. (Part-time students). Excessive tardiness could result in suspension or termination.

 

MAKE-UP WORK

 

Students who have been absent for any reason are required to make up any missed classes, including written tests, practical tests, and homework.  Make-up work is required to be completed during regular school hours on the preceding Wednesday.

 

EXCUSED AND UNEXCUSED ABSENCES

 

Bela’s School of Cosmetology lengthens the end of term date on the enrollment agreement to include a one month extension of the enrollment term. This extension is intended to allow for student absences such as but not limited to illness, medical appointments, daycare issues, ect. Students are required to contact the administrative offices for any absences extending more than three consecutive days.

 

TERMINATION

 

We reserve the right to take disciplinary measures for insubordination, refusal to cooperate with instruction and schedule, or in any case where we feel the student is not appearing or conducting their self in a professional manner, or in a way which is not a credit to the profession or school. Disciplinary measures can range from a verbal warning, to write up, to a suspension or expulsion.

 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

 

Students must maintain a 75% grade average, complete all required practical assignments, take and pass a final written and practical examination, complete program hours required for licensure, and make satisfactory arrangements for payment of monetary obligations to the school. Upon completion of all graduation requirements, a Diploma will be awarded to the student. Transcripts will not be released until all graduation requirements have been satisfied.

 

 

 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE FORMAL POLICY

 

A Leave of absence (LOA) will not involve any additional charges by the institution. 

 

Each student must request an LOA from the school in writing and it must be approved by the Administration.  The LOA form must be filled out completely with an explanation of why the student is requesting the LOA.  In addition, there must be a reasonable expectation that the student will return to school otherwise the LOA will be denied. 

 

If a student fails to return on their scheduled return date the student will be withdrawn from the program and termination of contract will begin that day. The withdrawal date for the purpose of calculating a refund will be the last date of attendance.  WARNING:  If you fail to return to school on your scheduled return date your grace period for your loan payments will start retroactively on the day the LOA began and repayment will begin sooner than expected.

 

In rare cases of emergency that would prevent a student from providing a prior written request the information may be phoned in and documented by the Academy. However, the student is required to come in and complete, sign, and date the LOA form as soon as possible but no later than 30 days after the initial phone request. If a student fails to complete the LOA form within the required 30 days the student will be withdrawn from the program and as stated previously, the grace period for loan payments will start retroactively on the day the LOA began and repayment will begin sooner than expected.

 

The LOA together with any additional leaves of absence must not exceed 180 days in any 12-month period. 

 

The institution will extend the student’s enrollment agreement period by the same number of days taken in the LOA.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS POLICY

 

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. 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.

 

EVALUATION PERIODS

 

Students are evaluated for Satisfactory Academic Progress as follows:

 

Cosmetology                        450, 900, 1200     clocked (scheduled) hours

 

Esthetician                                           300         clocked (scheduled) hours

 

Manicuring                                           300         clocked (scheduled) hours

 

Cosmetology Instructor                     300         clocked (scheduled) 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 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 in order 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.

 

MAXIMUM TIME FRAME

 

The maximum time (which does not exceed 150% of the course length) allowed for students to complete each course at satisfactory academic progress is stated below:

ACADEMIC PROGRESS EVALUATIONS

 

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 a minimum number of practical experiences. Academic learning is evaluated after each unit of study. Practical assignments are evaluated as completed and counted toward course completion only when rated as satisfactory or better (the computer system will reflect completion of the practical assignment as a 100% rating). If the performance does not meet satisfactory requirements, it is not counted and the performance must be repeated. At least two comprehensive practical skills evaluations will be conducted during the course of study. 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 75% and pass a FINAL written and practical exam prior to graduation. Students must make up failed or missed tests and incomplete assignments. Numerical grades are considered according to the following scale:

 

                   

 

NUMERICAL GRADE

LETTER GRADE

95-100

A

85-94

B

75-84

C

74-65

D

Below 65

F

 

DETERMINATION OF PROGRESS STATUS

 

Students meeting the minimum requirements for academics and attendance at the evaluation point are considered to be making satisfactory academic progress until the next scheduled evaluation. Students will receive a hard-copy of their Satisfactory Academic Progress Determination at the time of each of the evaluations. Students deemed not maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress may have their Title IV Funding interrupted, unless the student is on warning or has prevailed upon appeal resulting in a status of probation.

 

WARNING

 

Students who fail to meet minimum requirements for attendance or academic progress are placed on warning and considered to be making satisfactory academic progress while 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 Title IV funds.

 

PROBATION

 

Students who fail to meet minimum requirements for attendance or academic progress after the warning period will be placed on probation and considered to be making satisfactory academic progress while during the probationary period, if the student appeals the decision, and prevails upon appeal. Additionally, only students who have the ability to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy standards by the end of the evaluation period may be placed on probation. Students placed on an academic plan must be able to meet requirements set forth in the academic plan by the end of the next evaluation period. Students who are progressing according to their specific academic plan will be considered making Satisfactory Academic Progress. The student will be advised in writing of the actions required to attain satisfactory academic progress by the next evaluation. If at the end of the probationary period, the student has still not met both the attendance and academic requirements required for satisfactory academic progress or by the academic plan, he/she will be determined as NOT making satisfactory academic progress and, if applicable, students will not be deemed eligible to receive Title IV funds.

 

RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

 

Students may re-establish satisfactory academic progress and Title IV aid, as applicable, by meeting minimum attendance and academic requirements by the end of the warning or probationary period.

 

INTERRUPTIONS, COURSE INCOMPLETES, WITHDRAWALS

 

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 and maximum time frame 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 will return in the same satisfactory academic progress status as at the time of withdrawal.

 

APPEAL PROCEDURE

 

If a student is determined to not be making satisfactory academic progress, the student may appeal the determination within ten calendar days. Reasons for which students may appeal a negative progress determination include death of a relative, an injury or illness of the student, or any other allowable special or mitigating circumstance. The student must submit a written appeal to the school on the designated form describing why they failed to meet satisfactory academic progress standards, along with supporting documentation of the reasons why the determination should be reversed. This information should include what has changed about the student’s situation that will allow them to achieve Satisfactory Academic Progress by the next evaluation point. Appeal documents will be reviewed and a decision will be made and reported to the student within 30 calendar days. The appeal and decision documents will be retained in the student file. If the student prevails upon appeal, the satisfactory academic progress determination will be reversed and federal financial aid will be reinstated, if applicable.

 

NONCREDIT, REMEDIAL COURSES, REPETITIONS

 

Noncredit, remedial courses, and repetitions do not apply to this institution. Therefore, these items have no effect upon the school's satisfactory academic progress standards.

 

TRANSFER HOURS

 

With regard to Satisfactory Academic Progress, a student’s transfer hours will be counted as both attempted and earned hours for the purpose of determining when the allowable maximum time frame has been exhausted.

 

WITHDRAWAL AND SETTLEMENT POLICY

 

For applicants who cancel enrollment or students who withdraw from enrollment a fair and equitable settlement will apply. The following policy will apply to all terminations for any reason, by either party, including student decision, course or program cancellation, or school closure.

 

Any monies due the applicant or students shall be refunded within 45 days of official cancellation or withdrawal. Official cancellation or withdrawal shall occur on the earlier of the dates that:

 

  1. An applicant is not accepted by the school. The applicant shall be entitled to a refund of all monies paid.
  2. A student (or in the case of a student under legal age, his/her parent or guardian) cancels his/her enrollment in writing within three business days of signing the enrollment agreement. In this case all monies collected by the school shall be refunded, regardless of whether or not the student has actually started classes.
  3. A student cancels his/her enrollment after three business days of signing the contract but prior to starting classes. In these cases he/she shall be entitled to a refund of all monies paid to the school less the registration fee in the amount of $125.
  4. A student notifies the institution of his/her withdrawal in writing.
  5. A student on an approved leave of absence notifies the school that he/she will not be returning. The date of withdrawal shall be the earlier of the date of expiration of the leave of absence or the date the student notifies the institution that the student will not be returning.
  6. A student is expelled by the school. (Unofficial withdrawals will be determined by the institution by monitoring attendance at least every 30 days.)
  7. In type 2, 3, 4 or 5, official cancellations or withdrawals, the cancellation date will be determined by the postmark on the written notification, or the date said notification is delivered to the school administrator or owner in person.

 

  • For students who enroll and begin classes but withdraw prior to course completion (after three business days of signing the contract), the following schedule of tuition earned by the school applies. All refunds are based on scheduled hours:

 

                PERCENT OF SCHEDULED TIME                                                TOTAL TUITION SCHOOL

 

ENROLLED TO TOTAL COURSE/PROGRAM                           SHALL RECEIVE/RETAIN

 

                                0.01% to 04.9%                                                                                     20%

 

                                 5% to 09.9%                                                                                        30%

 

                                10% to 14.9%                                                                                        40%

 

                                15% to 24.9%                                                                                        45%

 

                                25% to 49.9%                                                                                        70%

 

                                50% and over                                                                                          100%

 

  • All refunds will be calculated based on the students last date of attendance. Any monies due a student who withdraws shall be refunded within 45 days of a determination that a student has withdrawn, whether officially or unofficially. In the case of disabling illness or injury, death in the student's immediate family or other documented mitigating circumstances, a reasonable and fair refund settlement will be made. If permanently closed or no longer offering instruction after a student has enrolled, the school will provide a pro rata refund of tuition to the student. If the course is canceled subsequent to a student's enrollment and instruction has begun, the school will provide a pro rata refund for all students transferring to another school based on the hours accepted by the receiving school. The school does not participate in any teach-out agreement with another institution.
  • Students who withdraw or terminate prior to course completion are charged a cancellation or administrative fee of $150.00. This refund policy applies to tuition and fees charged in the enrollment agreement. Other miscellaneous charges the student may have incurred at the institution (EG: extra kit materials, books, products, unreturned school property, etc.) will be calculated separately at the time of withdrawal. All fees are identified in the catalog and in this enrollment agreement.

 

The student’s withdrawal date, for the purposes of calculating returns to Title IV, shall be the last date of academic attendance as determined by the institution from its attendance records. Attendance is monitored on the 15th of each month to determine unofficial withdrawals for students who have been absent for 30 consecutive days without prior approval.

 

If a Title IV financial aid recipient withdraws or is terminated prior to program completion, a calculation for return of Title IV funds will be completed and any applicable returns by the school shall be paid, as applicable, first to unsubsidized Federal Direct Student Loan Program; second to subsidized Federal Direct Student Loan Program; third to Federal Pell Grant Program; fourth to other Federal, State, private or institutional student financial assistance programs; and last to the student. After all applicable returns to Title IV aid have been made, this refund policy will apply to determine the amount earned by the school and owed by the student. If the student has received personal payments of Title IV aid, he/she may be required to refund the aid to the applicable program.

 

Collection: If a student defaults on his/her monetary obligations to the School, student will be responsible for collection costs, interest, and attorney fees.
