Dual Credit Ė High School Program

Regular class attendance is important to the attainment of the educational objectives of the college. The cosmetology program has formulated an attendance policy that is consistent with the objectives of the program and the needs of the student to accumulate clock hours.

In order to fulfill state licensing requirements, and the fact that becoming deficient in clock hours will affect your ability to progress in the program.

Students must clock 1000 hours to qualify for the state written and practical examination. If a student exceeds the required absences in each semester, they will fall short on clock hours for completion of the TDLR required 1000 clock hours.

TDLR Rule: 83.72 (j) Responsibilities of the School:
(j) Schools using time clocks shall post a sign at the time clock that states the following department requirements:
(1) Each student must personally clock in/out for himself/herself.
(2) No credit shall be given for any times written in, except in a documented case of time clock failure or other situations approved by the department.
(3) If a student is in or out of the facility for lunch, he/she must clock out.
(4) Students leaving the facility for any reason, including smoking breaks, must clock out, except when an instructional area on a campus is located outside the approved facility, that area is approved by the department and students are under the supervision of a licensed instructor.
The afternoon cosmetology studentís class time is 12:30 - 4:30, Monday -Thursday
Students are tardy at 8:00 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
Upon clocking in, the student must be on the lab floor on task.
Each student is assigned a code to clock in; it is your responsibility to clock in and out each day.
No student may clock in or out for another. This is considered stealing and both students will be written up and removed from the program.
Students are responsible for all materials covered in class. If you quit coming to class and do not officially drop, your grades will be averaged, and you will receive the grade represented by this average.
Administrative details are your responsibility (You must officially drop the course).
Make-up exams will NOT be given. If you miss an exam BECAUSE of an EXCUSED ABSENCE, your lowest Unit Exam grade will be used for the missed exam.
You can only miss one exam per class with an excused absence (excluding the final).
Student must be present for all final exams.
Excused absences include medical and family emergencies and are determined at the instructor's discretion. Written proof from a physician will be required for medical and family emergencies in order to substitute the score for missed exam ONLY.
In reality, there are no excused absences in Cosmetology. TDLR requires that a student can only acquire clock hours if they are under the direction of a licensed Cosmetology instructor and show proof of their clock hours. If you are not in attendance, you will fall short on your hours and education.
Students must make every attempt to be on time and in class each day. Itís the studentís responsibility to make up missed time.
Students are NOT to leave the campus while on break (On or Off the Clock)
Students are not to go to their cars while on the clock and on break.

Attendance Disciplinary Action:

Students are allowed two (2) days or 4 half days absence. If a student exceeds the required days by a half day or more:
1st Offense: Verbal & Written Notification
2nd Offense: Verbal & Written notification and the student will one (1) hour off the clock..
