Crisis Plan

Beauty Anatomy Institute has a standing Crisis Management Team that actively monitors, measures and enhances the school’s emergency response capabilities and infrastructure. This team is comprised of administrators, staff and faculty representing virtually every area of school, including the Director’s Office, Security Personnel, and among many others. Beauty Anatomy Institute team utilizes a comprehensive, three-part Crisis Management Plan, to guide the school’s response to threats ranging from hurricanes to epidemic outbreaks. This plan, which was built specifically for the Beauty Anatomy Institute, is continually updated to assure the crisis team is armed with the best information to assure the safety and security of its students, employees and facilities.

Communication is the key

Beauty Anatomy Institute has gone to great lengths to ensure the safety of its students and staff, while being mindful to maintain the collegiate environment that makes our school a home away from home for our students, and our employees. Should an emergency occur on the campus, the security personnel is able to articulate emergency information to the entire campus via a campus-wide voice alert intercom system. At the same time, the school‘s crisis response team utilizes an emergency text system to alert and update students, faculty and staff of any campus events that may affect them or the school’s calendar (such as tropical weather-related closings). This system allows the school to issue updates and alerts via the appropriate combination of social media, e-mail, voice and text messages.

Everyone has a role to play

One of the main tenets of the plan is that every member of the Beauty Anatomy Institute has a role to play when it comes to safety. One small thing that every student and employee can do is keep their emergency contact information up-to-date. That information can be updated at the front office at any time. All students and staff are able to include up to four phone numbers (including numbers for parents and or friends).

Desired Student Characteristics

Characteristics of a Successful Student

Many students new to Vocational School do not know what it takes to be successful in a Vocational School environment. They understand good and bad grades in a general way, and they sense that they should attend classes, but that is where their knowledge begins and ends.

Most instructors know what a good student is – and is not. For one thing, a good student is not necessarily the most intelligent individual in the class.

The following is a list of some characteristics of good students. This list is a description of what a hard-working student does and what a teacher likes to see. By learning these characteristics, you may better understand the day-to-day and class-to-class behavior of successful students. The idea is to provide you with guidelines you can follow which will help you get down to the business of becoming a serious, successful student.

1. Successful students attend classes regularly. They are on time. They listen and train themselves to pay attention. If they miss a session, they feel obligated to let the instructor know why before class begins, if possible, and their excuses are legitimate and reasonable. They make sure they get all missed assignments (by contacting the instructor or another student), and understand specifically what was covered in class. Successful students take responsibility for themselves and their actions.

________________________________________

2. Successful students take advantage of extra credit opportunities when offered. They demonstrate that they care about their grades and are willing to work to improve them. They often do the optional (and frequently challenging) assignments that many students avoid.

________________________________________

3. Successful students are attentive in class. They don’t talk, read, or stare out windows. In other words, they are polite and respectful, even if they get a little bored. They also participate in class even if their attempts are a bit clumsy and difficult. They ask questions that the instructor knows many other students may also have.

________________________________________

4. Successful students see their instructors before or after class or during office hours about grades, comments on their papers, and upcoming tests. Successful students end up at their instructor’s office door at least once during the semester. They’ll go out of their way to find the instructor and engage in meaningful conversation. These students demonstrate to the instructor that they are active participants in the learning process and that they take the job of being a student seriously.

________________________________________

5. Successful students turn in assignments that look neat and sharp. They take the time to produce a final product that looks good, and reflects of a care and pride in their work. Successful students seem driven to complete their assignments. All work and assignments are turned in, even if some of their responses are not brilliant.

Disbursement For Books Supplies

All books, supplies and equipment necessary for all programs is provided by the school and or included in the student kit. It is the student’s responsibility to replace any equipment as necessary to complete work assignments, if such equipment becomes lost, stolen, or broken. Students should have all equipment they might need, to complete any assignment, available at all times.
Students have the option to buy their books from the school, or from outside vendors such as www.amazon.com and www.cengagebrain.com.
Students must purchase their kits from the school as they are customized for our programs. We offer a payment plan available to students called “Monthly pay to own”. Your equipment must be left at the school at the end of your class, which will be inspected. If you elect to pay the balance early, you may take it home. If you stop your education and no longer want to attend classes, you may pay the balance and keep the equipment. If you do not pay the balance on the equipment, it will be forfeited back to the school. The equipment is not returnable to the school because there is no way to evaluate if any of the items have been damaged by looking at them. If they were dropped there may be concealed damage therefore making them unsuitable for return and resale to another student.

Disciplinary Policy

Students must be courteous to instructors, administrators, classmates and clients. If a student does not comply with the rules and polices of the school he/she may be subject to immediate suspension from the school.

If a student receives 3 or more suspensions he/she will be dismissed from the school.

Any student who has been dropped from school due to any reason and wishes to return, must request in writing to request a meeting with the President. The President’s decision is final.

Dress Code

Uniforms: Cosmetology, Facials, Massage, Nail and Barber students receive two sets of school scrubs.

Shoes: Flat, closed toe are the ONLY acceptable shoe.
Students may not sign in without a clean, pressed uniform.

Drug Free Workplace Policy

No student or employee shall use any illegal drugs; alcohol or tobacco products while on School property or attend School under the influence of such substances.

Florida Laws are passed and the school follows the laws to protect the public. Any person engaging in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of any type of controlled substance on school property or as a part of a school’s activities will be subject to termination and the proper authorities will be notified.

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ABUSE PREVENTION POLICY

Applicability

This policy is relevant to members of Beauty Anatomy Institute including all students, faculty, staff and all visitors, contractors and guests to Beauty Anatomy Institute facility and events.

This policy is to edify and to prevent harm due to alcohol or illegal drug use. It’s intent is to promote the growth of student personal accountability by facilitating conditions or order and safety. Our Students are expected to act responsibly while enjoying the autonomy that comes with Beauty Anatomy Institute.

General Policy Statement

Beauty Anatomy Institute is devoted to providing an environment that is free of the abuse of and illegal use and possession of controlled substances.

Sale and delivery of such substances are prohibited unless authorized by law.

Health Risks

The use of illegal drugs and the misuse of prescription and other drugs pose a serious threat to health. The use of marijuana (cannabis) may cause impairment of short-term memory, comprehension, and ability to perform tasks requiring concentration. Marijuana use also may cause lung damage, paranoia, and possible psychosis. The use of narcotics, depressants, stimulants, and hallucinogens may cause nervous system disorders and possible death as the result of an overdose. Illicit inhalants can cause liver damage. Additional risks associated with the use of drugs include impaired academic or work performance; lost potential; financial problems; poor concentration; blackouts; conflicts with supervisors, co-workers, friends and others; vandalism, theft and murder; sexual assault and other unplanned sexual relationships; spouse and child abuse; sexually transmitted diseases; and unusual or inappropriate risk taking which may result in physical or emotional injury or death.

Alcohol and health risks

Alcohol is a depressant drug that is absorbed into the bloodstream and transmitted to all parts of the body, most significantly affecting the brain. It is classified as a psychoactive drug because of its effects on the mind and the behavior.

The impact of alcohol varies among individuals, but even moderate doses reduce physical coordination and mental alertness, making certain activities dangerous. Larger doses of alcohol cause staggering, slurred speech and slowed reaction time. Even larger doses can cause mood swings, memory blackouts, unconsciousness and even death. Health risks involved with long-term heavy drinking include: addiction, liver damage, heart disease, circulatory problems, peptic ulcers, various forms of cancer and irreversible brain damage. High risk drinking also known as “binge drinking” is defined as an occasion in which the drinker consumes five or more drinks at one sitting. This behavior is a significant concern when one con-sider that alcohol overdoses is a medical emergency. Despite a national minimum drinking age of 21, alcohol remains the most widely used drug among American college students. As a result, alcohol abuse is a contributing factor in many campus problems. Recent national campus statistics published by the American College Health Association reveal that alcohol is involved in:

 

  • Approximately 66% of all violent behavior
  • Approximately 75% of all suicide attempts
  • Approximately 90% of all reported “date rape” incidents
  • Approximately 50% of all traffic fatalities in which victims were between 16-24 years of age
  • Approximately 30% of all academic difficulties

 

Students and employees can receive individual consultation sessions, assessment and counseling or be referred to community providers or agencies for assistance in dealing with drug abuse by calling the 2-1-1 Broward Assistance Help Line at 954-537-0211 or TDD 954-390-0942.

Such disciplinary actions also may include reprimand or suspension. Student organizations may also be sanctioned for violation of these policies and laws.

Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

We will follow the FERPA Policy.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.”

•Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student’s education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.

•Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.

•Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student’s education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):

◦School officials with legitimate educational interest;

◦Other schools to which a student is transferring;

◦Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;

◦Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;

◦Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;

◦Accrediting organizations;

◦To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;

◦Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and

◦State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.

Schools may disclose, without consent, “directory” information such as a student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.

For additional information, you may call 1-800-USA-LEARN (1-800-872-5327) (voice). Individuals who use TDD may call 1-800-437-0833.

Victims now have an official right to have a supporter present during the exam. In order for police to collect evidence of the assault, it is best if you do not bathe, shower, douche, brush your teeth, urinate, defecate, change, or launder clothing or bedding. Clothing and/or bedding may be taken as evidence. You will receive a physical exam, and pictures will be taken as evidence. If you wish assistance in notifying Beauty Anatomy Institute School’s security or other law enforcement agencies about a sexual battery or other crime, you may contact the school directly at (954)972-0635.

Loan Related Disclosure Requirements

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF DIRECT LOANS

Governing Law

The terms of this Application and the Master Promissory Note (MPN) will be interpreted in accordance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (20. U.S.C. 1070 et seq.), the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED’s) regulations, as they may be amended in accordance with their effective date, and other applicable federal laws and regulations (collectively referred to as the “Act” ). Applicable state law, except as preempted by federal law, may provide for certain borrower rights, remedies, and defenses in addition to those stated in this MPN.

Disclosure of Loan Terms

This MPN applies to Federal Direct Stafford/Ford (Direct Subsidized) Loans and Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford (Direct Unsubsidized) Loans. Under this MPN, the principal amount that I owe, and am required to repay, will be the sum of all disbursements that are made (unless I reduce or cancel any disbursements as explained below under Loan Cancellation), plus any unpaid interest that is capitalized and added to the principal amount. At or before the time of the first disbursement of each loan, a disclosure statement will be sent to me identifying the amount of the loan and additional terms of the loan. Important additional information is also contained in the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement accompanying this MPN. The Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement and any disclosure statement I receive in connection with any loan under this MPN are hereby incorporated into this MPN. Loans disbursed under this MPN are subject to the annual and aggregate loan limits specified under the Act. I may request additional loan funds to pay for my educational costs up to the annual and aggregate loan limits by contacting my school’s financial aid office. My school will determine if I am eligible for any additional loan funds. I will be notified of any increase or other change in the amount of my loan. My eligibility for Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans may increase or decrease based on changes in my financial circumstances. My school will notify me of any changes in my eligibility. I will be notified of any increase or decrease in the amount of my loan. I understand that each loan made under this MPN is separately enforceable based on a true and exact copy of this MPN.

Loan Cancellation

I may pay back all or part of a disbursement within the timeframes set by the Act, as explained in the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement and in a disclosure statement that I will receive. If I return the full loan amount within those timeframes, I will not incur any loan fee or interest charges. If I return part of a disbursement within those timeframes, the loan fee and interest charges will be reduced in proportion to the amount returned.

Interest

Unless the Department of Education (ED) notifies me in writing of a lower rate, the interest rate for any loan I receive under this MPN is determined using a formula specified in the Act. As explained in the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement, I will be notified of the actual interest rate for each loan that I receive. ED does not charge interest on a Direct Subsidized Loan during an in school grace, or deferment period, and during certain periods of repayment under the Income-Based Repayment Plan. ED charges interest on a Direct Subsidized Loan during all other periods (including forbearance periods), starting on the day after my grace period ends. ED charges interest on a Direct Unsubsidized Loan during all periods (including in-school, grace, deferment, and forbearance periods), starting on the date of the first disbursement. I agree to pay all interest that is charged to me. I will be given the opportunity to pay the interest that accrues during grace, in school, deferment, forbearance, or other periods as provided under the Act. If I do not pay the interest, I understand that ED may capitalize the interest at the end of the grace, deferment, forbearance, or other period.

Loan Fee

A loan fee is charged for each Direct Subsidized Loan and Direct Unsubsidized Loan as provided by the Act, and will be deducted proportionately from each disbursement of each of my loans. The loan fee will be shown on disclosure statements that will be issued to me. I understand the loan fee may be refundable only as permitted by the Act.

Late Charges and Collection Costs

ED may collect from me: (1) a late charge of not more than six cents for each dollar of each late payment if I fail to make any part of a required installment payment within 30 days after it becomes due, and (2) any other charges and fees that are permitted by the Act related to the collection of my loans. If I default on my loans, I will pay reasonable collection costs, plus court costs and attorney fees.

Grace Period

I will receive a six-month grace period on repayment of each loan made under this MPN. The grace period begins the day after I cease to be enrolled at least half-time at an eligible school. I am not required to make any payments on my loan during the grace period. However, interest will accrue on my Direct Unsubsidized Loan during the grace period and will be capitalized if I do not repay it.

Repayment

I must repay the full amount of the loans made under this MPN, plus accrued interest. I will repay each loan in monthly installments during a repayment period that begins on the day immediately following my 6-month grace period on that loan. Payments made by me or on my behalf will be applied first to late charges and collection costs that are due, then to interest that has not been paid, and finally to the principal amount of the loan, except during periods of repayment under an Income-Based Repayment Plan, when payments will be applied first to interest that is due, then to fees that are due, and then to the principal amount. ED will provide me with a choice of repayment plans. Information on these repayment plans is included in the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement. ED will provide me with a repayment schedule that identifies my payment amounts and due dates. If I am unable to make my scheduled loan payments, ED may allow me to temporarily stop making payments, reduce my payment amount, or extend the time for making payments, as long as I intend to repay my loan. Allowing me to temporarily delay or reduce loan payments is called forbearance. ED may adjust payment dates on my loans or may grant me forbearance to eliminate a delinquency that remains even though I am making scheduled installment payments. I may prepay all or any part of the unpaid balance on my loans at any time without penalty. If I do not specify which loans I am prepaying, ED will determine how to apply the prepayment in accordance with the Act. After I have repaid in full a loan made under this MPN, ED will send me a notice telling me that I have paid off my loan.

Acceleration and Default

At ED’s option, the entire unpaid balance of a loan made under this MPN will become immediately due and payable (this is called “acceleration”;) if any one of the following events occurs:

1) I do not enroll as at least a half-time student at the school that certified my loan eligibility

2) I do not use the proceeds of the loan solely for my educational expenses

3) I make a false representation that results in my receiving a loan for which I am not eligible

4) I default on the loan. The following events will constitute a default on my loan:

1) I do not pay the entire unpaid balance of the loan after ED has exercised its option under items 1, 2, and 3 in the preceding paragraph

2) I do not make installment payments when due, provided my failure has persisted for at least 270 days

3) I do not comply with other terms of the loan, and ED reasonably concludes that I no longer intend to honor my repayment obligation. If I default, ED may capitalize all the outstanding interest into a new principal balance, and collection costs will become immediately due and payable. If I default, the default will be reported to national consumer reporting agencies and will significantly and adversely affect my credit history. I understand that a default will have additional adverse consequences to me as disclosed in the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement.

Legal Notices

Any notice required to be given to me will be effective if mailed by first class mail to the most recent address ED has for me. I will immediately notify ED of a change of address or status as specified in the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement. If ED fails to enforce or insist on compliance with any term of this MPN, this does not waive any right of ED. No provision of this MPN may be modified or waived except in writing by ED. If any provision of this MPN is determined to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in force. Information about my loans will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). Information in NSLDS is accessible to schools, lenders, and guarantors for specific purposes as authorized by ED.

LOAN REPAYMENT OPTIONS

The repayment period for each Direct Subsidized Loan and Direct Unsubsidized Loan that you receive begins on the day after your grace period ends. The Direct Loan Servicing Center will notify you of the date your first payment is due. You must make payments on your loan even if you do not receive a bill or repayment notice. Billing information is sent to you as a convenience, and you are obligated to make payments even if you do not receive a notice or bill. You may choose one of the following repayment plans to repay your loan:

Standard Repayment Plan

With the standard plan, you’ll pay a fixed amount each month until your loans are paid in full. Your monthly payments will be at least $50, and you’ll have up to 10 years to repay your loans. The standard plan is good for you if you can handle higher monthly payments because you’ll repay your loans more quickly. Your monthly payment under the standard plan may be higher than it would be under the other plans because your loans will be repaid in the shortest time. For the same reason—the 10-year limit on repayment—you may pay the least interest.

Graduated Repayment Plan

With this plan your payments start out low and increase every two years. The length of your repayment period will be up to ten years. If you expect your income to increase steadily over time, this plan may be right for you. Your monthly payment will never be less than the amount of interest that accrues between payments. Although your monthly payment will gradually increase, no single payment under this plan will be more than three times greater than any other payment.

Extended Repayment Plan

With this plan you must have more than $30,000 in Direct Loan debt and you must not have an outstanding balance on a Direct Loan as of October 7, 1998. Under the extended plan you have 25 years for repayment and two payment options: fixed or graduated. Fixed payments are the same amount each month, as with the standard plan, while graduated payments start low and increase every two years, as with the graduated plan below. This is a good plan if you will need to make smaller monthly payments. Because the repayment period will be 25 years, your monthly payments will be less than with the standard plan. However, you may pay more in interest because you’re taking longer to repay the loans. Remember that the longer your loans are in repayment, the more interest you will pay.

Income Contingent Repayment Plan – (not available for parent PLUS Loans)

With this plan you have the flexibility to meet your Direct Loan obligations without causing undue financial hardship. Each year, your monthly payments will be calculated on the basis of your adjusted gross income (AGI, plus your spouse’s income if you’re married), family size, and the total amount of your Direct Loans. Under the ICR plan you will pay each month the lesser of: 1. the amount you would pay if you repaid your loan in 12 years multiplied by an income percentage factor that varies with your annual income, or 2. 20% of your monthly discretionary income*. If your payments are not large enough to cover the interest that has accumulated on your loans, the unpaid amount will be capitalized once each year. However, capitalization will not exceed 10 percent of the original amount you owed when you entered repayment. Interest will continue to accumulate but will no longer be capitalized. The maximum repayment period is 25 years. If you haven’t fully repaid your loans after 25 years (time spent in deferment or forbearance does not count) under this plan, the unpaid portion will be discharged. You may, however, have to pay taxes on the amount that is discharged.

Income-Based Repayment Plan (effective July 1, 2009)

Under this plan, your required monthly payment amount will be based on your income during any period when you have a partial financial hardship. Your monthly payment amount may be adjusted annually. The maximum repayment period under this plan may exceed 10 years. If you meet certain requirements over a 25-year period, you may qualify for cancellation of any outstanding balance on your loans.

If you can show to our satisfaction that the terms and conditions of the above repayment plans are not adequate to meet your exceptional circumstances, we may provide you with an alternative repayment plan. If you do not choose a repayment plan, we will place you on the Standard Repayment Plan. The chart at the end of this Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement (“Repaying Your Loans”;) allows you to estimate the monthly and total amounts you would repay under the Standard, Graduated, Extended, and Income Contingent repayment plans based on various initial loan amounts. You may change repayment plans at any time after you have begun repaying your loan. There is no penalty if you make loan payments before they are due, or pay more than the amount due each month. Except as provided by the Act for payments made under the Income-Based Repayment Plan, we apply your payments and prepayments in the following order: (1) late charges and collection costs first, (2) outstanding interest second, and (3) outstanding principal last. When you have repaid a loan in full, the Direct Loan Servicing Center will send you a notice telling you that you have paid off your loan. You should keep this notice in a safe place.

Pay as You Earn Repayment Plan (effective December 21, 2012) 

To qualify for Pay As You Earn, you must have a partial financial hardship. You have a partial financial hardship if the monthly amount you would be required to pay on your eligible federal student loans under a 10-year Standard Repayment Plan is higher than the monthly amount you would be required to repay under Pay As You Earn. For this purpose, your eligible student loans include all of your William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program loans that are eligible for Pay As You Earn, as well as certain types of Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program loans. Although your FFEL Program loans cannot be repaid under Pay As You Earn, the following types of FFEL Program loans are counted in determining whether you have a partial financial hardship:

 

  • Subsidized and Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
  • Federal PLUS Loans made to graduate or professional students
  • Federal Consolidation Loans that did not repay any PLUS loans for parents You also must be a new borrower as of Oct. 1, 2007, and must have received a disbursement of a Direct Loan on or after Oct. 1, 2011. You are a new borrower if you had no outstanding balance on a Direct Loan or FFEL Program loan as of Oct. 1, 2007, or had no outstanding balance on a Direct Loan or FFEL Program loan when you received a new loan on or after Oct. 1, 2007. Your payment amount may increase or decrease each year based on your income and family size. Once you’ve initially qualified for Pay As You Earn, you may continue to make payments under the plan even if you no longer have a partial financial hardship.

 
Addendum to the Direct Subsidized Loan/Direct Unsubsidized Loan Master Promissory Note William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program 

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74), signed into law on December 23, 2011, changed one of the terms of Federal Direct Stafford/Ford Loans (Direct Subsidized Loans). Specifically, the new law temporarily eliminated the interest subsidy provided on Direct Subsidized Loans during the six month grace period provided to students when they are no longer enrolled on at least a half-time basis. This change is effective for new Direct Subsidized Loans for which the first disbursement is made on or after July 1, 2012, and before July 1, 2014.

As a result of this law, the terms of Direct Subsidized Loans that you receive under a Direct Subsidized Loan/Direct Unsubsidized Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) may differ from the terms described in the MPN and the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement. This Addendum modifies the MPN to reflect the change to the terms of Direct Subsidized Loans made by Public Law 112-74. The changes made by this Addendum are incorporated into and made part of the MPN and the Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement.You should keep a copy of this Addendum with your MPN and Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement.

1. MPN, Section E: MPN Terms and Conditions, Interest.

The first sentence of the second paragraph under the heading “Interest” is revised to read as follows: “Except as provided in the Note below, interest does not accrue on a Direct Subsidized Loan during an in-school, grace, or deferment period, and during certain periods of repayment under the Income-Based Repayment Plan.” The following Note is added immediately after the paragraph that begins “If I do not pay the interest…”: “Note: Interest accrues during the grace period on any Direct Subsidized Loan for which the first disbursement is made on or after July 1, 2012, and before July 1, 2014.”

2. MPN, Section E, Grace Period.

The last sentence of the paragraph under the heading “Grace Period” is revised to read as follows: “However, interest will accrue during the grace period on all of my Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and on my Direct Subsidized Loans for which the first disbursement is made on or after July 1, 2012, and before July 1, 2014. Interest that accrues during the grace period on these loans will be capitalized if I do not repay it.”

3. Borrower’s Rights and Responsibilities Statement, Item 9, Payment of Interest. The first sentence of the first paragraph is revised to read as follows:

“Except as provided in the Note below, interest does not accrue on a Direct Subsidized Loan while you are enrolled in school at least half time, during your grace period, during deferment periods, and during certain periods of repayment under the Income-Based Repayment Plan.”

Locker and Personal Belongings

Personal belongings are the student’s responsibility. Locker space may be available and all equipment should be marked for identification and cared for carefully. Lockers and locks are school property.

Personal effects left in lockers after student has dropped below half time attendance may be removed and held for 30 days. During this 30 day time, we will attempt to notify the student to make other storage arrangements.

After 30 days, the school assumes no responsibility for these items and they may be disposed of in any way convenient. All equipment necessary to the programs is part of the student kits or is provided by the school.

Policy on Academic Remediation

Students who are admitted are given the following instructions if the student finds it necessary to obtain extra academic assistance with any program. The administration will set up specific times during the day or night, not to interfere with theory hours or practical skills, to overview material necessary for remediation. The total hours necessary for remediation are determined on an individual basis. Assignments given to the student in need may be completed as homework at school during the student’s free time. Any students that let their grades fall below 80% must be remediated.

Program Objectives

Our objective is to provide students with diversified, integrated theory and practical programs from cosmetology, nails and skin care. This prepares the Cosmetology and Barber Students to sit for a State Exam so that the students may receive a license from the State of Florida, and prepares the Specialty students to sit for a school exam, to apply for a specialty registration. Massage Students are provided theory and practical programs. This prepares the Massage Student to sit for one of the three exams approved for a Florida license.

Re-enrollment Policy

Students who are dropped for making unsatisfactory progress in attendance and/or academics, as well as students who are dropped due to behavioral issues, must wait 90 days to re-enroll.

The waiting period will be waived for students who are dropped due to medical or personal crisis and those students who voluntarily withdrew. All re-enrolls must meet with the President to re-enroll.

Reference Materials/Media Center

Instructors follow Milady Course Outlines. All additional reference books must be approved by the school Director. The school offers computer workstations with internet access and a designated library area that includes book, video and materials for instructors and students to use. If you wish to borrow any of the materials, you need to see your theory instructor or the school manager.

Return of Title IV Policy

The Federal Return of Title IV funds formula (R2T4) dictates the amount of FederalTitle IV aid that must be returned to the federal government by the school and/or the student. The federal formula is applicable to an eligible student receiving federal aid when a student ceases attendance during the payment period/period of enrollment. If a student did not start or begin attendance at the school, the R2T4 formula does not apply.

 

For official withdrawals a student’s withdrawal date is the Last Date of Attendance.

 

Official Withdrawal Process: If a student wishes to withdraw from school, they must notify the Director of the school. The notification may be in writing or orally. The date the notification is received is the date of determination. The Director must begin the withdrawal process.

 

For unofficial withdrawals a student’s withdrawal date is their last day of physical attendance.

 

The school’s determination that a student is no longer in school for unofficial withdrawals is determined after 14 days of non-attendance.

 

The federal formula requires a Return of Title IV calculation if the student received or could have received federal financial assistance in the form of Pell Grants, Direct Loans or Direct Plus loans,FSEOG, TEACH, and Iraq Afghanistan Service Grants. Anytime a student withdraws prior to the end of the payment period the Return of Title IV calculation must be performed regardless of the percentage of the payment period that has been completed. The percentage of Title IV aid earned is equal to the percentage of the payment period that was completed as of the withdrawal date if this occurs on or before the 60% point of time at which time the student has earned 100% of the aid. The percentage that has not been earned is calculated by subtracting the percentage of Title IV aid earned from 100% The percentage of the payment period completed is calculated by the hours scheduled in the payment period as of the withdrawal date divided by the scheduled hours in the payment period.

 

The amount to be returned is calculated by subtracting the amount of Title IV assistance earned from the amount of Title IV aid that was or could have been disbursed as of the withdrawal date.

 

If a student receives less Title IV funds than the amount earned, the school will offer the student a disbursement of the earned aid that was not received at the time of their withdrawal which is a post withdrawal disbursement. Post withdrawal disbursements will be made from Pell grant funds first if eligible. If there are current educational costs still due the school at the time of withdrawal, a Pell grant post withdrawal disbursement will be credited to the student’s account. Any Pell grant funds in excess of current educational costs will be released to the student without the student having to take any action. The funds will be released as soon as possible but no more than 45 days after the date of determination. Any federal loan program funds due in a post withdrawal disbursement must be offered to the student and the school must receive the student’s authorization before crediting their account.

 

If a credit balance still exists on the student’s account after the R2T4 and institutional refund calculations are done, that credit balance must be used to pay any grant overpayment that exists based on the current withdrawal within 14 days from the date that the R2T4 calculation was performed. The overpayment must be eliminated prior to offering a credit balance to a student.

 

The following Title IV return distribution is used for all FSA students.

1. Unsubsidized Direct Loan

2. Subsidized Direct Loan

3. Federal Perkins Loan

4. Direct PLUS Loan(Graduate Student)

5. Direct PLUS Loan (Parent)

6. Federal Pell Grant

7. FSEOG

8. Teach Grant

9. Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant

 

Returns must be made to the federal programs as soon as possible, but no more than 45 days after the date of determination.

 

The statute requires that a student is responsible for all unearned Title IV program assistance that the school is not required to return. This is determined by subtracting the amount returned by the school from the total amount of unearned Title IV funds to be returned.

Satisfactory Progress Standards

1. An overall theory grade average of 80% or higher and passing grades in practical skills must be maintained. If a student does not meet this, they are given remedial training in the areas needing improvement. The student is re-tested and the grades are averaged together.

2. A cumulative monthly attendance average of 67% of contracted hours must be maintained. All students must complete program within the maximum time frame. (See below.)

3. A student returning from a Leave of Absence or reenrolling will return at the same satisfactory progress status as they were prior to the Leave of Absence. A Leave of Absence extends the student’s contract and the maximum time frame by the same number of days in the Leave of Absence.

4. Program incompletes, repetitious and non-credit remedial programs have no effect upon the school’s satisfactory progress standards.

School Reserved Rights

Beauty Anatomy Institute, Inc. reserves the right to make changes in the policies, procedures, schedules and other provisions in their catalog in order to enhance the educational quality and effectiveness of the Institute. Students will always be given notification of any policy change. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.

Signing In & Attendance Policy

Students must sign in and out on the timesheet in their classroom. All attendance hours will be rounded to the nearest quarter hour. A student must maintain a minimum of 67% of his or her contracted hours. Student’s attendance will be monitored monthly.

Absences

Students are allowed three unexcused absences per calendar month. Day students must report absences by 9:00 a.m., night students by 4:00 p.m.

Excused absences are:
• An illness with a doctor’s note.
• A child’s illness with a doctor’s note.
• Court with proper documentation.

Clock Hours/Breaks and Meals Policy

A clock hour is 50 minutes of instruction and 10 minutes of Students who choose to leave the school for lunch must sign out and back in. Students who remain in the school earn the clock hour time. Breaks and meals may be taken only after receiving permission from your instructor

Make-Up Policy

Beauty Anatomy Institute, Inc. is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. , and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Our students are expected to come to school according to their contract. If for any reason a student needs to be excused, he will be expected to make arrangements with the teacher.

Massage Therapy students must make up a missed clinic day on another clinic day. There are no exceptions.

Maximum Time Frame

To be making Satisfactory Progress, students must complete their program within a specified period of time, or maximum time frame. Upon enrollment, each student will be informed of their maximum time frame to complete the program. The maximum time frame shall not exceed 1.5 times the number of clock hours required to complete the program. At each evaluation period, attendance of student will be evaluated as to their ability to complete the program in the maximum time frame. In the event that a student must change their contracted schedule, the student’s maximum time frame will be adjusted accordingly.

At each evaluation period, attendance of students will be evaluated as to their ability to complete the program in the maximum time frame. Probation will apply only to the 300 and 900 hour evaluation. The estimated completion time of a part time student is double that of a full time student. Therefore, maximum time frame must be calculated accordingly.

Example: Stan is a part time day cosmetology student contracted 15 hours per week to complete the 1200 hour program. His estimated completion time is 80 weeks. His maximum time frame is 120 weeks (80 x 1.5). All time is rounded to the nearest whole number.

The following is a time frame chart:

Day 1200 hour students are contracted for 30 hours a week.

Evaluation Est. Completion Time Maximum Time Frame
300 hr. level. 10 weeks . 10 x 1.5 = 15 Weeks
600 hr. level. 20 weeks . 20 x 1.5 = 30 Weeks
900 hr. level. 30 weeks . 30 x 1.5 = 45 Weeks
1200 hr. level . 40 weeks . 40 x 1.5 = 60 Weeks

Night 1200 hour students are contracted for 20 hours a week, therefore their maximum time frame will be different.

Evaluation Est. Completion Time Maximum Time Frame
300 hr. level. 15 weeks . 15 x 1.5 = 23 Weeks
600 hr. level. 30 weeks . 30 x 1.5 = 45 Weeks
900 hr. level. 45 weeks . 45 x 1.5 = 68 Weeks
1200 hr. level . 60 weeks . 60 x 1.5 = 90 Weeks

600 hour students are contracted for 20 hours a week, therefore their maximum time frame will be different.

Evaluation Est. Completion Time Maximum Time Frame
200 hr. level. 7 weeks. 7 x 1.5 = 11 Weeks
400 hr. level. 14 weeks . 14 x 1.5 = 16 Weeks
600 hr. level. 21 weeks . 21 x 1.5 = 32 Weeks

360 hour students are contracted for 30 hours a week, therefore their maximum time frame will be different.

Evaluation Est. Completion Time Maximum Time Frame
180 hr. level. 6 weeks. 6 x 1.5 = 9 Weeks
360 hr. level. 12 weeks . 12 x 1.5 = 18 Weeks

Students will be charged for extra instruction needed to complete his/her program if the absences allowed within the contract period have been exhausted.

EXTRA INSTRUCTIONAL CHARGES POLICY

Each course/program has been scheduled for completion within an allotted time frame. It is not realistic to expect to receive an education for free. The school has reserved space, equipment, and licensed instructors for each student and course/program. If a student does not graduate within the contract period, additional training will be billed the programs contracted rate per hour, payable in advance, until graduation. Students will not be allowed to clock in until applicable daily payments are made.

Student Body Diversity

Pursuant to the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008, Colleges and Universities must make available to current and prospective students information about student body diversity, including the percentage of enrolled full-time students who are male, female, self- identified members of a major racial or ethnic group, and those who receive a Federal Pell Grant. The information is as follows:

Male – %

Female – %

Black or African American – %

Asian – %

White – %

Foreign National – %

Hispanic or Latino – %

American Indian or Alaska Native –%

Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander –%

First-time Undergraduate Pell recipients –%

*Student Body Information reported in IPEDS

Diversity is a multidimensional, all-encompassing concept that recognizes and embraces the richness of human differences. As a practical matter, it is important that Beauty Anatomy Institute define diversity with sufficient clarity, given the inherent obscurity of the term and the frequently mis-informed discussions that surround it.

 

The term “diversity” is not a code for race, ethnicity, or gender by themselves. While Beauty Anatomy Institute board’s concept of diversity may include these factors, it is far more inclusive, surrounding significant qualities and capabilities that can influence learning in and out of the classroom.

 

Beauty Anatomy Institute’s Workplace Equity and Performance seeks to embrace diversity and strengthen our community across local, national and global settings. In an educational institution, the diversity of experience, diversity of opinion and diversity of culture background not only enrich our quest for knowledge, they are vital to our success.

 

Beauty Anatomy Institute recognizes the significance of honoring differences year-round by creating a comprehensive environment that fosters appreciation and respect for the varied celebrations related to holidays and other events.

VACCINATION POLICY

Although not a requirement to gain admissions into the school, Beauty Anatomy Institute strongly recommends for young adults to be up to date with the following immunizations listed below:

MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)

Measles, mumps and rubella are serious diseases. The Measles virus can cause rash, coughing, runny nose, eye irritation and fever. It can lead to ear infection, pneumonia, seizures (jerking and staring), brain damage, and death. Mumps virus causes fever, headache, and swollen glands. It can lead to deafness, meningitis (infection of the brain and spinal cord covering), painful swelling of the testicles or ovaries, and, even death. Rubella Virus (German Measles) can cause rash, mild fever, and arthritis (mostly in women). If a woman gets rubella while she is pregnant, she could have a miscarriage or her baby could be born with serious birth defects. You or your child could catch these diseases by being around someone who has them. They can be contracted by another person through the air. Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine can prevent these diseases. Children should get 2 doses of MMR Vaccine, the first at 12-15 months of age and the second at 4-6 years of age. These are recommended ages. Children can get the second dose at any age, as long as it is 28 days after the first dose.

Meningococcal Meningitis

Meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial illness. It is a leading cause of bacterial meningitis in children 2 through 18 years old in the United States. Meningitis is an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Meningococcal disease also causes blood infections. Anyone can get meningococcal disease, but it is most common in infants less than one year of age and people with certain medical conditions, such as a lack of a spleen. College freshmen who live in dormitories and teenagers 15-19 have an increased risk of getting meningococcal disease. There are two kinds of meningococcal vaccines in the U.S. Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) was licensed in 2005. It is the preferred vaccine for people 2 through 55 years of age. Meningococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine (MPSV4) has been available since the 1970s. It may be used if MCV4 is not available, and is the only meningococcal vaccine licensed for people older than 55. Children 2 years of age and older should get 1 dose. Sometimes a second dose is recommended for people who remain at high risk. MPSV4 may be recommended for children 3 months to 2 years of age under special circumstances. These children should get 2 doses, 3 months apart.

Hepatitis B 

Hepatitis B is a serious disease that affects the liver. It is caused by the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV). HBV can cause acute (short-term) illness and can lead to loss of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting, tiredness, jaundice (yellow skin and eyes), pain in muscles, joints, and stomach. Acute illness is more common in adults. Children who become infected usually do not have acute illness. Chronic (long-term) infection can cause some people to go on and develop chronic HBV infection. This can be very serious, and often leads to liver damage (cirrhosis), liver cancer and death. Chronic infection is more common among infants and children than among adults. People who are infected can spread HBV to others, even if they don’t appear sick. The Hepatitis B virus can spread through contact with the blood or other bodily fluids of an infected person. The Hepatitis B vaccine can prevent Hepatitis B, and the serious consequences of HBV infection, including liver cancer and cirrhosis. All children should get their first dose of hepatitis B vaccine at birth and should have completed the vaccine series by 6 to 18 months of age. Children and adolescents through 18 years of age who did not get the vaccine when they were younger should also be vaccinated.

Title IX Policy

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities.

Transfer of Credit Policy

Students entering our programs who have earned hours from a previous school must provide Beauty Anatomy with a certified transcript from a state licensed school. Programs for which clock hours are granted shall parallel in content and intensity to the program offered by our school. Transfer hours will only be evaluated prior to enrollment. The hours accepted will shorten the program at Beauty Anatomy (subject to a $100 fee).

Students leaving our program have the responsibility to confirm whether or not clock hours (credits) will be accepted by another institution of a student’s choice.

Trial Enrollment Period Policy

A person who enrolls in the school will be offered the opportunity to attend certain programs for 14 days, without incurring a financial obligation beyond the registration fee.

During this period the school will ensure that students have the necessary books and materials needed to succeed during the trial period.

Students that continue attending class beyond the trial period are considered regular students and accepted into their selected program of study. Such students may not receive any federal financial aid until all required documentation and information is submitted and the student is admitted as a regular student.

 

In any event, a student still attending school after 14 days after the official start date of the program is deemed to have confirmed their intention to continue the program as a regular student and thus will be classified as such.

 

Any student who wishes to apply for federal financial aid after becoming a regular student must meet the student eligibility criteria as provided in the federal regulations. If the student qualifies for federal financial aid, the federal aid will apply from the beginning of the enrollment period, which includes the trial as applicable.

 

The Trial Enrollment Period is not applicable to transfer, reentry or 2nd and/or subsequent academic year continuing students.

A student must successfully complete the Trial Enrollment Period to be accepted by the school as a regular student.

 

On the last day of the trial enrollment period the students will make their decision whether or not they wish to continue with their program. If a student does not wish to continue with the training he/she will notify the school in writing and have no further financial obligation, and the school will retain the $150.00 registration fee.

Also, at this time the Beauty Anatomy Institute will make a decision based on the above criteria as to whether the student will be a good candidate for our training program. If the student chooses to continue with his/her program the enrollment agreement will be finalized at this time, and he/she will be considered a regular student.

No student will be eligible for financial aid until he/she is a regular student. Should a student choose to withdraw from school after becoming a regular student he/she will follow the withdrawal procedure covered in the school’s catalog and on the student’s enrollment agreement.

 

Beauty Anatomy Institute does not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, color, religion or ethnic origin. We do not recruit students already attending or enrolled at another school offering a similar program of study. The school reserves the right to refuse admission to any person who shows an inability or unwillingness to successfully complete the program and gain employment in the field of cosmetology.

Students who have attended more than three post-secondary schools without completing a course of study (obtaining a degree, certificate or diploma), will need to submit a statement explaining why they feel they will successfully complete the program for which they are enrolling.

Beauty Anatomy Institute may extent this period of time for up to an additional 30 days if the school deems it nessesary to further evaluate the students commitment to the program.

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN REAUTHORIZATION ACT (VAWA)

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a landmark piece of legislation that sought to improve criminal justice and community-based responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking in the United States.

The passage of VAWA in 1994 and its reauthorization in 2000, 2005 and 2013, has changed the landscape for victims who once suffered in silence. Victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking have been able to access services, and a new generation of families and justice system professionals has come to understand that domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking are crimes that our society will not tolerate.
