SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS AND GRADING SYSTEM PROCEDURE
At Trend Barber College Inc. progress is not measured in grades alone. Progress towards the Program objective is most accurately measured by faculty evaluations which are based on data gained through daily individual faculty/student interaction. The standard is the same whether the student is receiving federal financial aid or not. The components of progress which weigh equally in student evaluation are: -

a. Attendance 34%
b. Grades 33%
c. Adherence to school rules and regulations 33%

A student's poor performance could warrant his/her being placed on probation and could cause dismissal from school. Professional judgment of the management team will decide whether or not a student is progressing satisfactory in his field.

Trend Barber College Inc. uses the following grading system.

Exam, Written and Practical           G.P.A.
A     90-100                                         4.0
B     80-89                                           3.0
C     75-79                                           2.0
D     60-74                                           1.0
F     59 and Below                              FAIL

Students are evaluated on a continuous basis. Students are tested each week and scores-evaluated with performances each time. The daily and weekly evaluations are compiled on monthly progress reports. Any student not making a satisfactory progress is warned and counseled and must make satisfactory attendance and maintain a better grade point average. During this evaluation a student is considered to be making satisfactory progress if they demonstrate the following:

A. Adherence to their proposed attendance schedule.
B. Maintain an average of 75% or better
C. Adherence to the school's rules

Any student failing to meet the above requirements will not be making satisfactory progress and will be notified by the financial Aid Officer. No Federal financial Aid will be paid during the probation period. The student's progress will be reevaluated at the end of the probation period. To be removed from probation, a student must maintain a 75% or better grade point average and must not miss more than five (5) days of unexcused absences for the probationary period. If after the probationary period, they do not get a 75% (C-Level), the student will be terminated.

In addition, students are making satisfactory progress as long as the Program objectives for graduating are completed with 1-1/2 times the stated program length.

Maximum Time                                 Times                                      Maximum
Barber Styling                                     2250 clock hours/                    18 months
Teacher                                                1500 clock hours/                   12 months
Manicure                                              900 clock hours/                     10 months

Minimum Time                                                                     
Barber Styling                                      1500 clock hours/                   12-1/2 months
Teacher                                                1000 clock hours/                   8 months
Manicure                                              600 clock hours/                     5 months

Satisfactory academic progress is checked at 450,750, 900, 1200 actual hours for Barber Stylist, 450 and 900 actual hours for teacher and 300 and 500 actual hours for manicure. Genesis School Management software service helps to generate a satisfactory progress check form.
By the time the student reaches the midpoint of their program they must have met satisfactory progress on at least one evaluation period.

A leave of absence may extend the student's contract period and maximum time by the same number of days in the leave of absence. The student will return in the same status at which he/she departed. Program incompletes, repetitions, and non-credit remedial Programs have no effect on satisfactory academic progress because Trend Barber College does not offer them.

Clarification- Monthly Progress Reports are generated by Genesis school management software monthly, and used as a counseling tool to inform students of their academic and attendance progress as well as a host of other useful information.

Satisfactory academic progress check form- generated by genesis school management software at 450,750, 900, and 1200 actual hours and is used to determine satisfactory academic progress for barber program. This form is used to evaluate both students on Federal Aid and those that are not on.

APPEAL PROCEDURE

A student whose training has been interrupted for failing to meet satisfactory academic progress may appeal to the chief executive officer for reenrollment into the program. Students seeking re-entry will be counseled by their Faculty Advisor before they are re-admitted. A student will not be making satisfactory academic progress until they meet the satisfactory academic progress standard or until they win an appeal. A student who wishes to file an appeal of the school decision must do so within ten (10) days of receiving the decision.  The school president will present the appeal to the Financial Aid Committee for review. The committee may call the student forward for further investigation on the case. The committee will report the findings to the school president for a final decision. The decision of the president is final.  A student's aid will be reinstated only if an appeal is won or the student returns to satisfactory academic progress.

The Financial Aid Officer will place the student on the Warning List, provide the student with a written Warning Letter, and inform the student that their SAP will be monitored for one payment period.  If the student’s SAP improves after the payment period, then the student will be back in good standing with the school.  If the student fails to meet the SAP requirement, he or she will be placed on probation for 60 days and he or she will not be able to receive Financial Aid unless he appeals to the school
president in writing. The appeal should state their reasons for not meeting SAP requirements, with evidence if needed. If the president of Trend Barber College approves the student’s appeal, then the student would be able to receive financial aid if he maintains a good attendance record and completes or makes up any outstanding academic work if needed.

If the student still fails to meet SAP requirements after being allowed to receive financial aid, they must provide a written explanation, and they will be placed on the warning and monitoring list.  The student will be provided a schedule that he or she will need to adhere to for 90 days.  If the student still fails to meet the SAP requirements, his or her appeal will be denied and they will dropped from the program.
