Cosmetology as a career that offers the benefit of growth…..
If you are considering a career in an industry that has grown during these tough economic times, is still growing and will continue to grow for many years to come, use this page to do your homework. The link on this page will connect you to information that is provided by the US Department of Labor. It identifies many characteristics of the industry, not limited to hours of employment, pay scale, job description, advancement opportunities and self employment. This school is licensed by the Indiana Professional LIcensing Agency and nationally accreded by NACCAS. Voluntary compliance with these two agencies allow the DRSHD to offer financial aid to those that qualify.
For the calendar year of 2011, for all courses offered, our combined completion rate was 67.35%. For this same period of time, 100% of those that took their licensing exam were successful and 81.82% of our graduates found employment. The 18.18% that were not placed chose not to be employed in industry-related positions. As required by NACCAS, all graduates completed the program within 150% of their course length.
At DRSHD we understand that life happens and that many times plans to start a new career are redirected by life. Some of our graduates have experienced a program longer than planned. It has been our experience that the exception to the rule is perfect attendance. This is a sad truth. Employers in our industry tell us the same, they do not expect perfect attendance, but do grafefully accept it.
The acceptance to the rule, which is what the vast majority of students are able to do, is to complete within the terms of their enrollment contract. This population too, is to be congradulated!
To accomodate this need, all enrollment contracts, regardless of course length, full or part time, have always and will continue to allow for a 10% absence period/90% required There is NO additional charge for these personal days/emergencies. Additionally each student is allowed one LOA, not to exceed 6 months in length, that does not involve additional educational charges. There are two table below, each is identified by course offered and specific to the attendance of each group.
|On Time Completion Rates/Requires Perfect Attendance||100%||100%||100%||100%|
|Median Federal Student Loan Debt||$4000||$9500||$4500||$4000|
|Median Non Federal Private Loan Debt||0||0||0||0|
This information is be made available yearly, as the infomation is calculated, reviewed and made avaialble to the US Department of Education. This on time completion rate, in accordance with the USDE regulations only reflect students who have maintained perfect attendance throught their enrollment. Actual completion rates covering all graduates are significantly higher. These scheduled completions for perfect attendance do not include the schools scheduled holidys/breaks.
