Admission Policy

Admission Requirements

Enrollees are admitted as regular students once one of the following criteria has been met.
graduation1A) Applicant must provide a copy of his/her High School Diploma, GED or its equivalent, and pass an admissions test, SLE test (Scholastic Level Exam) Form IV. Asel Beauty College will verify the authenticity of the diploma prior to enrolment. If the diploma cannot be verified, the student may be asked to provide a final high school transcript showing the dates of entrance and graduation and courses completed. If transcript is not available, the student will be required to meet the Ability-to-Benefit (ATB) requirements or take and pass GED test prior to enrollment.

Students admitted under this criteria, will be required to pass one of the Ability-to-Benefit tests approved by the US Department of Education administered by an independent proctor. Students subject to these criteria are referred to as students admitted under the Ability-to-Benefit criteria guidelines. Currently, our school is using the CELSA Ability-to-Benefit. The school’s admissions personnel will provide applicants with additional information as to how to arrange for the Ability-to-Benefit test. All Ability-to-Benefit students must take and pass the test prior to admissions. If you do not pass the exam, re-testing is available after one week waiting period and the independent proctor will explain and provide you with the re-testing procedures.
C) Student must show English language proficiency. A passing score on either the SLE admissions test or the CELSA Ability-to-Benefit test will be acceptable in showing English language proficiency.

Transferability of Credits Earned

Students previously enrolled in an accredited school of Cosmetology may submit their academic records to Asel Beauty College for review and possible transfer of credit.
The College will either:
1) Accept the transfer credit based upon a review of the official transcript from an accredited institution provided those courses are part of the College’s approved curriculum for that program of study, or
2) Administer a comprehensive exam for each course that measures and affirms the student’s previous education. A score of 75% or better is required for each such exam in order to receive credit for that particular course. It may be necessary to administer a series of examinations both in theory and hands-on in order to validate the granting of credit for previous education. If a satisfactory result is achieved, the student’s training period may be reduced proportionately. Students who are granted such credit may have their tuition reduced proportionately.
All out of state applicants must furnish the FORM C of credit hours from the California Board of Barbering/Cosmetology and it must be notarized from the previous school you attended.
The transfer hours from another institution that are accepted toward the student’s educational program are counted as both attempted and completed hours for the purpose of determining when the allowable maximum time frame has been exhausted. SAP evaluation periods are based on actual contract hours at the institution.
The college does not award credit for prior experiential learning.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

Asel Beauty College expects all of its students to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) as established by this institution. Any prospective student should read and consider the SAP policy before enrollment. The college’s SAP policy is applied consistently to all students enrolled in a specific program and scheduled for a particular category of attendance (part-time/full-time).
The student must:

1. Maintain a cumulative academic average of “C” (70%) or better on all tests, work projects (operations) and other required course work.
2. Maintain a cumulative average attendance level of at least two-thirds (2/3) (67%) of the scheduled hours indicated on their enrollment contract. For example, a student scheduled to complete 30 hours per week would have to maintain an average weekly attendance of at least 20 hours per week (2/3 x 30 = 20).
Regardless of the average level of attendance, students who have more than two consecutive weeks of absences (14 calendar days) will be dismissed. This standard shall apply to all students except those on an approved Leave-of-Absence (see LOA policy). Students who expect to be absent 14 or more days up to 180 days are encouraged to request a Leave-of-Absence. In addition to attendance standards relating to Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), students are also required to adhere to certain other general institutional policies relating to attendance and tardiness. These policies are outlined in the “School Policies” section of this catalog on pages 17-19.
3. Complete the course within one and one-half times (150%) the length of the course as defined in the catalog. For example, a student who enrolls in a 400 hour/ 20 week long Manicurist program must complete within 30 weeks. For the purpose of determining the maximum time frame, transfer hours from another institution that are accepted toward the student’s educational program are counted both as attempted and completed hours.
4. Students must meet minimum academic and attendance requirements for each evaluation period of the course to be considered as making satisfactory academic progress until the next scheduled evaluation.

Evaluation Periods

SAP evaluation periods are based on actual contracted hours at this school.
Students’ compliance with the Satisfactory Academic Progress is assessed as follows (all hours are scheduled hours completed and based on actual contracted hours at the college):
Cosmetology: When a student is scheduled to complete 400, 800, 1200 and 1440 hours
Esthetician: When a student is scheduled to complete 300 and 540 hours
Manicurist: When a student is scheduled to complete 200 and 360 hours

Grading System

Students are evaluated on a regular basis on theory, practical and clinical work. The evaluations are measured on a standard percentile basis and the percentage equated to a letter grade. All copies of evaluation forms are issued to students upon completion of each increment of the course hours as explained above for students’ review. This evaluation form reflects the overall Attendance and Academic progress of the student. Students must maintain a minimum of “C” (70%) cumulative grade average or practical evaluation to maintain satisfactory academic progress status. The system detailed below is the system utilized in the school.

Academic Grading Point Grades for Practical Work 
100% – 90% A…..Excellent  (GPA 4)   4 POINTS = A
 89% – 80% B…..Above Average   (GPA 3)   3 POINTS = B
 79% – 70%  C…..Average   (GPA 2) 2 POINTS = C
 69% – 60%  D…..Unsatisfactory   (GPA 1)   1 POINTS = D
 59% – 00 % F……Fail   (GPA 0)   0 POINTS = F
Attendance Status

Full time: Any student scheduled to attend 24 hours or more per week are considered to be full-time students. Half time enrollment requires a minimum of 12 hours per week. Part-time enrollment is defined as more than 12 but less than 24 hours per week. Less than 12 hours per week is less than half time.

Academic Probation

Students who meet the minimum requirements for attendance and academic performance are considered to be making satisfactory academic progress until the next scheduled evaluation. Students who fail to meet SAP standards during a given evaluation period will be placed on satisfactory academic progress probation for one additional evaluation period, if the student appeals the negative progress determination, and if the college determines that SAP can be met by the end of the subsequent evaluation period or the college develops an academic plan for the student, if followed, will ensure that the student is able to meet the college’s SAP requirement by a specific point within the maximum timeframe established for the individual student.
For the students under SAP probation, satisfactory academic progress will be reinstated only after the student has re-established SAP in accordance with the attendance and grading standards indicated in STANDARDS 1, 2, 3 & 4 of SAP standards as described on page 15 of the school catalog. Probationary students who meet SAP by the conclusion of the probationary period will be removed from academic probation and will be considered making SAP.
Probationary students who fail to meet SAP by the conclusion of the probationary period will be deemed not to be making satisfactory academic progress, and may be terminated at the discretion of the institution. In the event a student is terminated due to not making Satisfactory Academic Progress, all policies regarding the institution’s refund policy will apply.

Appeal Procedures

Students who wish to appeal the decision that they are not making Satisfactory Academic Progress must submit a written request to the institution’s administrator. The letter should be received within ten (10) days of college’s determination and must describe any circumstances related to the student’s academic standing, which the student believes to deserve special consideration, such as but not limited to, an injury or illness of the student, death in the family. The student can attach documentation regarding why the student failed to make SAP and what has changed in the student’s situation that will allow the achievement of SAP at the next evaluation period, such as but not limited to doctor’s note, death certificate etc. The administrator shall evaluate the appeal within a reasonable time frame (5-10 days) and notify the student in writing of the administrator’s decision. Should the student’s appeal be denied, he or she may appear before a school committee to present his or her case. The committee shall provide written notice to the student of its decision within a reasonable time frame (5-10 days). The decision of the committee shall be final. All the results of the appeal procedures will be documented in the student’s file. All the copies of student’s request and college’s decisions will be kept in the student’s file.

Transfer Hours

Transfer hours from another institution that are accepted toward the student’s educational program are counted as both attempted and completed hours for the purpose of determining when the allowable maximum time-frame has been exhausted.

Re-entering Students

Students, who are re-entering after a period of withdrawal, re-enter in the same academic progress status as when they left.

Leave of Absence

Occasionally, students may experience extended personal, medical or other problems which make it difficult to attend class. The institution may allow a student under such circumstances to take a Leave of Absence (LOA) from the program for up to 180 days in a 12 month period. The LOA must be requested in writing by the student and must be approved by the school officer. The LOA request form must be filled out and the date of leave and return must be stated on the form prior to the officer’s approval of the LOA. Do not request a Leave of Absence unless you absolutely need one. Students on LOA’s will not be assessed any additional charges of tuition. Students returning from an authorized LOA will retain all credit for clock hours and work projects completed and will be returned to the academic progress status they held prior to the start of the leave of absence. In addition, students returning from a LOA will have his/her maximum time frame to complete the course and the period covered by the enrollment agreement (contract) extended by the same number of days taken in the leave of absence. Contract addendum will be prepared to reflect the changes, which should be initialed and signed by both the student and a school officer. Students who fail to return from a LOA will be considered withdrawn as of the last class day of attendance prior to the start of the leave and the official determination date will be the expected return date of the leave of absence. The refund calculation will be performed and all refunds due will be issued to the student or appropriate agencies and paid within 45 days of the official determination date.

Course Incompleteness

Course incompleteness, repetitions and non-credit remedial course are not applicable to this institution’s form of instruction. Thus course incompletes, repetition and non-credit remedial courses have no effect upon the college’s SAP standards.

School Rules and Regulations
Diplomas and Certificates

Upon satisfactory completion of the required course hours, and the student has maintained a satisfactory grade on all subjects covered, a diploma will be given to the student. Also a proof of Training Record will be issued. This record will then become part of the application for examination for your State of California License.

Neither Diploma nor Certificate of Completion will be issued unless all monies have been paid in full.

Attendance, Tardy and Make-up Policies
” Attendance must be maintained at an average of 67 percent of the scheduled attendance if the student is expected to complete the course of study within the 1.5 times of the period of time stated in the enrollment agreement.
” An absence may be excused by calling-in the same day prior to the beginning of class.
” Frequent tardiness and/or absences are cause for disciplinary action such as probation or dismissal.
” All lesson assignments which were missed during any period of absence must be made up. Make-up work will not be permitted during class hours. A record of make-up work is maintained for each student who is required to perform this type of work.
” Students with fourteen (14) consecutive days of absences, in any program of study, will be withdrawn by the College.

Student Clock Hour Policy

The Board of Barbering and Cosmetology will only recognize time-clock punched hours of attendance, as a result of this requirement this school can only give clock hour credit to students who record their attendance by using the time clock to punch in and out at the start and end of their class day and lunch period. You will be given up to seven (7) minutes to clock in and receive credit for the quarter (1/4) hour. This seven minute period applies to starting of the class day. A thirty (30) minute lunch break shall be taken when a student attends a 6 hour class day or more. If you are attending less than a 6 hour class day and desire to take a lunch break (30 minutes), then the half hour must be deducted from your daily total and you must clock in/out on your time card for the lunch break. Once theory classes have been started no one will be allowed to enter the theory classroom. At the completion of the day, your time card is prepared from the current weekly time card. The daily hours and operations earned are added to the totals in the prior column and final totals transferred to the cumulative column. These cumulative figures are then entered in the prior column on the weekly time card. The time card must be signed by the student and the instructor daily. Instructors may not sign a student in or out and if a student does not clock in our out at lunch, 30 minutes for lunch will be deducted.

Time cards reflect the student’s daily record of hours and operations. It is important that all of your hours and operations are recorded properly and accurately. The attendance personnel must be able to read your time card so that the hours and operations are transferred correctly to the roster. The time cards are the property of the school and must remain in the school at all times. Time cards must be maintained in their entirety for 6 years by the school. After clocking in you are required to maintain applied effort, personnel grooming, leaving the building, reading material not related to your training or activity not related to your training is not tolerated. If this occurs you will be ask to stop such activity or to punch out for the remainder of the day. Continued activities of this nature could result in your termination.

Time Card Credit

The following is a guideline for the instructor to issue credits.
1. Each Theory must be initialed in the proper category. If that category is complete, the instructor may issue credit in a comparative category.
2. The portion of the time card reflecting hours are in the Theory hours earned and any classes the instructor has demonstrated.
3. The portion of the time card concerning operations is to be applied efforts of the students as they manually perform practical subject.
4. Some practical operations may take longer to perform according to the student. Note the following time frame the Program gives for each operation: Shampoo/set = 1 1/2 hours, Scalp Treatment = 1/2 to 1 hour, Permanent
Wave = 2 to 2 1/2 hours, Facial = 1 1/2 to 2 hours, Manicure = 1/2 hour, Hair cut = 1/2 to 1 hour. Using the above, the Board would understandably not consider a student capable of performing more than 3 permanent waves per day.

Student Conduct

As adults, it is expected that students will conduct themselves in a mature and professional manner, giving the proper respect and courtesy to his/her classmates, the clients, and the staff of the school. Disruptions of class will not be tolerated at any time. Any such conduct will result in termination from the training program in which he/she is enrolled.

Students are encouraged to return for placement assistance by reviewing the listings of salons seeking employees and the requirements, salary, and other pertinent information. Students are sent on interviews and the results of these interviews are recorded in the student register. The school may show prospective students this register upon request. The college assists students in placements as often as needed; however, the college does not guarantee employment to any student.
