The support staff efficiently addressed all other needs from financial aid to job placement.

Gainful Employment Information The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), has long provided for the extension of financial aid to students attending postsecondary programs that “lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation,” including nearly all programs at for-profit institutions and certificate programs at public and non-profit institutions. For-profit institutions, in particular, are a diverse, innovative, and fast-growing group of institutions. Below is the pertinent information as pertaining to the Esthetics, Skin Care & Make-up (CIP code – 12.0401) Program at Shear Ego International School of Hair Design. On-time Graduation Rates / Placement Metrics / Median Loan Debt Colleges, universities, and proprietary schools like Shear Ego International School of Hair Design are required to disclose On-Time Graduation Rates, Placement Metrics, and Median Loan Debt for each program offered for each award year. The on-time graduation rate is calculated by dividing the number of on-time completers by the total number of graduates for the specific year. These on-time graduation rates are based on perfect attendance and do not account for holidays, school closings, leave of absence or minimum absent time. Shear Ego International School of Hair Design provides the number of graduates during an award year who completed their program within 150% of the normal program length. This metric is in line with reporting graduation rates to other federal reporting and accrediting agencies. Federal regulations also require colleges, universities, and proprietary schools like Shear Ego International School of Hair Design to disclose placement rate information about the population of students counted as “on-time” completers. In addition to these rates, Shear Ego International School of Hair Design collects and reports placement (employment) rates annually to our accrediting agency, the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences (NACCAS). Median loan debt is based on the number of students who completed their program in the specific financial aid award year, and has been calculated by comparing the total amounts that students borrowed for each loan type, starting with $0 up to the maximum amount borrowed.
