PAGE 40 SECTION 10: CAMPUS POLICY AND OPERATIONS

 

General Rules and Regulations

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture upholds a culture of “professional excellence.” All students are expected to maintain their professionalism while attending school. A complete list of our rules and regulations will be distributed at new student orientation and is also available upon request prior to enrollment. All rules and regulations are subject to change without notice.

Smoke-Free Environment

In support of a smoke-free environment, smoking is not permitted in Tricoci University of Beauty Culture. A designated outside smoking area may be provided, depending on building location, logistics, and city ordinances.

Record of Hours

It is a state requirement that each campus provide a controlled and accurate process for recording all student hours. Each campus is equipped with a time clock system. It is the student’s responsibility to clock in at the beginning of the day and out again at the end of the day. A thirty (30) minute meal period is automatically deducted each day for students who attend five (5) hours or more per day. The teacher’s manual attendance records do not affect the official time clock system. The attendance taken in class is for academics and will not be adjusted on the students’ record of hours.

Failure to follow the proper procedures will result in a miscalculation of hours. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture is not responsible for manually adjusting a student’s hours if he or she neglects to clock in or clock out. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture reserves the right to deem miscalculated hours as unofficial hours and reflect the student as absent. Should a student believe the hours did not register correctly in the time clock system; he or she has 24 hours from the date of the punch to report the possible error to Campus Management, who will investigate the possible discrepancy.

Theft of hours occurs when a student is not present at Tricoci University of Beauty Culture or not participating in institution- related activities when clocked in. We do not tolerate dishonesty or theft of any means. Any student guilty of theft of hours may be immediately expelled from the program.

School Calendar

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will publish a School Calendar annually. The campuses are closed for Winter Vacation (typically the last week of December), Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Summer Vacation (typically the first week of July), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. In the Spring Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will also close for annual Instructor In-service days (dates vary each year).

Each year, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture conducts a Constitution Day educational program on September 17 to commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution. If September 17 falls on a weekend or holiday, Constitution Day will be held during the preceding or following week. Students should consult their detailed campus calendar to confirm the specific day each year.

No scheduled hours are accrued during the holiday closures. Starting dates and graduation dates vary by enrollment. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture reserves the right to change scheduled dates and hours without prior notice. See Campus Schedule for the most current holiday schedule. See Program Schedule/Program Costs disclosure for upcoming start dates for each program.

Punctuality Standard

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture approaches each student’s education as the launching of his or her professional career. Therefore, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture expects each student’s punctuality to be at the same standards as his or her future employer. Tardiness will interfere with the quality of education, professional development and ultimate career success. Because of the systematic nature and intensity of the education, frequent tardiness will have a negative effect on a student’s standing and may result in that student having difficulty in maintaining satisfactory progress.

Students must be in their designated class areas and prepared to begin class at the scheduled start time.

Students arriving later than the scheduled start time and up to 30 minutes after the scheduled start time will be considered tardy. Any student arriving 31 minutes or more after his or her scheduled start time will be considered absent and must leave school.

In the rare event a student needs to be late to school due to an emergency situation out of his/her control, the student should be prepared to supply supporting documentation for the tardiness upon arrival to school. The student should immediately meet with Campus Management and provide documentation. The General Manager has final approval and will notify the student if they are permitted to stay at school the rest of the school day.

Essentials Attendance Policy

The Essentials portion of each program is the starting point of the program of study and your career. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture students will learn all foundational skills during the Essentials portion of their program which is the primary factor for success in the industry.  Absences will cause the student to fall behind academically and it will be very difficult to catch up on missed skill sets.  As a result, we have implemented a maximum number of clock hours allowable to miss during the Essentials portion for your program.  Please see table below:

Program of Study

Maximum Number of Clock Hours Missed in Essentials

Cosmetology 38 Clock Hours
Barber 38 Clock Hours
Esthetics 19 Clock Hours
Nail Technology/Manicuring 12 Clock Hours
Barber (Crossover) 19 Clock Hours

Each week, student attendance will be reported and tracked.  Students who have exceeded the maximum cumulative absent hours will be given a final written warning.  Should future absences occur for the duration of the Essentials program, it will result in the student’s withdrawal/expulsion from the institution.

If a student is absent from class for an unavoidable reason (i.e. medical, bereavement, jury duty), the student must provide supporting documentation for the time missed to the Student Success Advisor upon return to school.  The hour(s) missed will not count towards the maximum number of clock hours in Essentials, but will count toward overall absent hours and affect the student’s attendance percentage.

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend Tricoci University of Beauty Culture daily. It is recommended that students notify campus management every day of an absence. Students should contact the campus prior to the scheduled start of class.

In the event a student encounters a situation that mandates missed hours, such as an emergency, illness, vacation, or bereavement, the student is held accountable for any/all education missed as a result of being absent. It is solely the students’ responsibility to obtain the missed information and missed assignments.

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture may determine that any student with fourteen (14) consecutive calendar days of absences to be withdrawn from the program of study and institution. The determination may be made regardless of the student’s notification of absence.  Please note, the summer and winter breaks that are reflected in the School Holiday addendum will not count against students when calculating the consecutive dates due to campus closure.

Jury Duty

Time off will be granted for Jury Duty. However, the Campus Management must be notified in advance and a copy of the jury summons must be submitted. Those chosen to participate on a jury should contact Campus Management as soon as possible after being selected with the estimated length of the trial. Upon return from jury duty, the student must submit a dated certificate of completion to Campus Management, to ensure all hours lost during the dates of the student’s jury service may be adjusted so the overall attendance percentage is not impacted.

Essentials Attendance Policy

The Essentials portion of each program is the starting point of each student’s career and the foundation in which each Tricoci University program is built upon. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture students will learn all foundational skills during the Essentials portion of their program. Absences will cause the student to fall behind academically and it will be very difficult to catch up on missed skill sets.

During the Essentials portion of the program, the student will be expected to attend school every day and in the event of an absence, make-up any applicable assignments and/or exams in a timely manner. Please note, make-up time outside of the student’s regular schedule may potentially be offered, but is not guaranteed and must be done in accordance with the campus make-up time policy, as applicable.

Campus Parking

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will do its best to provide sufficient parking; however Tricoci University of Beauty Culture makes no promise of availability of parking. Students must park in designated areas only.

Emergency School Closings

If a situation arises that may have an effect on normal hours of operation, students will receive instructions from Tricoci University of Beauty Culture Management in person, on Tricoci University of Beauty Culture Campus social media, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture email and/or the Tricoci University of Beauty Culture Student App. Examples of situations include:

  • Power outage
  • Weather (all types)
  • Natural Disasters
  • Potentially unsafe campus environment

In the event inclement weather occurs during scheduled hours and Tricoci University of Beauty Culture does not close early, it is the student’s choice to leave before an official announcement to close. However, hours lost in this circumstance may affect your Satisfactory Attendance Standing (See SAP Policy).

Student Leave of Absence (LOA) Policy

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture encourages students to make steady progress toward completing their program. Thus, leaves of absence may be granted only under the following unusual circumstances:

  • to care for the student’s child after birth or adoption: maternity or paternity leave;
  • to care for the student’s spouse, partner, child, or parent who has a serious health condition; and/or
  • due to the student’s own illness, injury, or serious health condition that prevents him or her from being able to continue with his or her education;
  • death of an immediate family member;
  • enrolled students who are members of the military and receive official military orders

A leave of absence (LOA) will require a student’s contracted graduation date to be revised based on the terms of the LOA. A LOA will extend the student’s contract period and maximum time frame by the same number of days as the LOA. All students, when placed on a LOA, will return with the same academic and attendance status as when they began their LOA. A student who is granted an approved LOA is considered to remain in an in-school status for Title IV loan repayment purposes and is not considered to have withdrawn. No additional institutional charges will be assessed to students granted a leave of absence.

LOAs may be granted for no less than seven (7) consecutive calendar days and may not exceed sixty (60) consecutive calendar days for bereavement, when caring for the student’s adopted child, or what is deemed necessary by the student’s or student’s spouse’s, partner’s, child’s, or parent’s healthcare provider, as applicable. If an enrolled student who is a member of the military receives official military orders, the LOA may be granted for no less than seven (7) calendar days and may exceed sixty (60) days but not exceed one hundred eighty days (180) in a twelve (12) month period. Supporting documentation will be required for all LOA requests (see below in “Procedures for Requesting a LOA” for documentation details).

Based on the student’s academic progress, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture may require the student return when the curriculum is at or near the same point of education as when the LOA began. This may extend the LOA beyond the timeframe requested by the student, to ensure quality education. However, students will not be permitted leave(s) of absence that extends beyond one hundred eighty (180) days in any twelve (12) month period, regardless of the reason for the LOA. Students are encouraged to request the least amount of time needed, due to the likelihood of the LOA being extended to ensure quality education and maximum allowable timeframe for LOAs.

A leave of absence may only be granted where there is a reasonable expectation that the student will return from the leave of absence. Additionally, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture makes no guarantee a leave of absence request will be approved. A leave of absence should be requested only when truly necessary and is at the student’s risk. When a LOA request is unable to be accommodated and a student is obligated to withdraw from his/her respective program, the student is encouraged to apply for readmission by following the current Re-Admission Policy.

Procedures for Requesting a LOA: Students requesting a LOA must complete the LOA Request Form, sign, and submit to Campus Management in advance, detailing the reason for the LOA, the exact period of the LOA, and provide supporting documentation (i.e., note from qualified healthcare provider or adoption certificate/decree, obituary or official military orders documents). When requesting a LOA for medical reasons, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will not extend a LOA beyond what is requested by a healthcare provider, unless it is necessary to ensure quality education. When requesting a LOA for death of an immediate family member, an obituary or another official document must be provided. Please note the start of a LOA must be on a day the campus is open and the student is normally scheduled.

The LOA Request Form and supporting documentation should be submitted within 24 hours of the requested LOA start date. In the event of unforeseen circumstances preventing the student from submitting the requested LOA within 24 hours, the complete paperwork should be submitted as soon as possible.  However, students must be mindful of the attendance policy as any student absent for 14 consecutive calendar days may be expelled from his/her program.  The approved LOA start date will be determined by Tricoci University of Beauty Culture to be the first scheduled date the student was unable to attend school because of the qualifying incident.  Any student that is unable to request a LOA due to unforeseeable circumstances prior to being expelled for being absent 14 consecutive calendar days is encouraged to follow the current Expulsion Appeal and/or Readmission Policy.

The Student Success Manager will review and determine approval or denial for all requests on an individual basis.  The LOA Request Form will be returned to the student with a denial or approval. Approved LOAs will contain the student’s scheduled return meeting date and time.  If the student has been on LOA due to a medical reason, including pregnancy/childbirth, he or she must submit a signed release from a qualified healthcare provider indicating the student is able to return to school as of or prior to the scheduled return date.  Students who fail to provide this release upon return from LOA will not be permitted to attend class and may be counted absent. If the medical release is not provided within 48 hour of the return date the student can be withdrawn from his or her program.

Procedures for Requesting to Extend a LOA: Students requesting a LOA extension must contact the Student Resources Office in writing (email to StudentResources@tricociuniversity.edu or fax to (630) 574-1510), detailing the reason for the request and the date in which the student is requesting to return to school, no later than 24 hours prior to the scheduled return date and time, to allow sufficient time for processing. However, if the student is unable to submit his or her LOA extension request at least 24 hours prior due to extreme unforeseen circumstances, such as injury or illness affecting the student or his or her dependent child, the student will be permitted to require an extension up until his or her scheduled return time. The student must submit all supporting documentation to the Student Resources Office to validate the need for the extension at the time of his or her request. If approved, Student Resources will schedule a new return meeting and update all paperwork. The student will be notified in writing of the outcome of the extension request.

Procedures for Returning from an LOA: Changes to the contract period on the enrollment agreement must be initialed by all parties or an addendum must be signed and dated by all parties upon return. Students returning from a medical leave must provide a medical release from a qualified healthcare provider, indicating the student is able to return to school as of or prior to the scheduled return date, upon returning from LOA. Students who fail to provide this release upon return from LOA will not be permitted to attend class and may be counted as absent. If the medical release is not provided within 48 hour of the return date the student can be withdrawn from his or her program. Based on a student’s academic progress status and LOA, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture reserves the right to have a student test upon reentrance or repeat a level of education.

Failure to Return from a LOA: Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will officially withdraw students who do not return on their scheduled return date. For the purpose of calculating a potential refund, the withdrawal date will be the student’s last date of attendance. For students receiving Title IV loans, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture will report the change in enrollment status to the holder of the loan, which could reduce and/or exhaust the student’s grace period.

Students are responsible to receive approval to participate in Make-Up Time with their General Manager. Any questions regarding student Make-Up Time should be addressed with the Campus Director. Should a student violate the Make-Up Time guidelines at their Campus, they may become ineligible to participate in future Make-Up Time opportunities.
