|Required Textbooks||Milady's Standard Cosmetology 2016 Edition, Theory Workbook, Exam Review Book, and The Texas Department Licensing and Regulations Book|
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. ( High school students 900 hours) 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.
As a courtesy, an instructor will make every attempt to open the clock at 7:30 a.m. to allow students the opportunity to make-up additional minutes.
Note: This is a courtesy, not a requirement.
The afternoon cosmetology students class time is 12:30 - 5:30, Monday -Thursday
Students may clock in as soon as the clock is turned on until 8 a.m. or 12:30
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. It's the students responsibility to make up missed time.
Monday through Friday
15 minute breaks and a 30-minute lunch break.
P.M. Break 2:00-2:15
Lunch Break 11:00-11:30 or 11:30-12:00
Before going on break and /or lunch, work stations and supplies must be cleaned.
Cell phones are permitted on break ONLY. While on break, students are permitted the use of their cell phones in designated areas ONLY (theory class, the break room, and gazebo).
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: Written notification and the student will lose a half day of clock time.
2nd. Offense: Written notification and five (5) points off your final grade.
3rd. Offense:Written notification and five (5) additional points off your final grade.
4th. Offense: Written notification and one (1) day loss of hours.
1. 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 with less than 500 clock hours, will not be allowed to progress in the program.
2. Students must earn a minimum grade of Ă˘â‚¬ËśCĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ in all technical courses in the Recommended Program of Study.

Some material in this course may be copyrighted. They may be used only for instructional purposes this semester,
by students enrolled in this course. These materials are being used fairly and legally.
No one may distribute or share these copyrighted materials in any medium or format with anyone outside this class,
including publishing essays with copyrighted material, uploading copyrighted material to Facebook or YouTube, or
painting or performing copyrighted material for public display.
Copyright violation is not the same thing as plagiarism. Plagiarism is intellectual dishonesty. Offenses of plagiarism result in lower grades or failing scores, and professors and the college strictly enforce plagiarism rules. There is never any acceptable use of plagiarism. Copyright violation is a legal offense, punishable by large fines and penalties.
Copyrighted material can be used if permission from the material’s creator is obtained, or if its use meets the standards of fair use in an educational setting. For example, a student can quote a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a report without violating copyright but still be guilty of plagiarism if the quotation is not properly documented.
If you are in doubt about what material can be freely used, ask your professor or contact the Dean of Library Services, at (409) 984-6216.
Assessment is a process by which LSCPA can help you learn better and gauge the level of progress you have made to
attain knowledge, skills, beliefs, and values. It also helps your professors understand how to improve teaching
and testing methods in your classes, and it helps each department understand and improve degree and certificate
Periodically LSC-PA will collect assessment data for research and reporting purposes, including statistical data and sometimes copies of your work. Be assured that all material the college uses for assessment purposes will be kept confidential. To ensure anonymity, your name will be removed from any material we use for assessment purposes, including video-recorded performances, speeches, and projects.
If you object to allowing LSC-PA to use your material for assessment purposes, submit a letter stating so to your professor by the 12th class day. You will still be required to participate in whatever assessments are being done; we just won’t use your data.
What’s the difference between assessment and grades? The grades you get on papers, projects, speeches, and assignments are specific types of focused assessment. LSC-PA’s assessment efforts include class grades, surveys, standardized tests, and other tools.
Federal privacy laws apply to college students. This means that college employees, including instructors, cannot
divulge information to third parties, including parents and legal guardians of students. Even if the students are
minors, information about their college work cannot be shared with anyone except in very limited circumstances.
Anyone requesting information about a student should be referred to the Registrar. Instructors will be notified in writing by that Office about what information may be released and to whom.
Please remember that releasing private information about a student, however innocuous it may seem, can be a violation of federal law, with very serious consequences.
Circumstances under which information may be released:
An adult student may submit, to the Registrar, a handwritten, signed note granting permission for release of
information. The note must specify what information may be divulged, and it must specify the name of the person
to whom the information may be given.
The Registrar’s office is located in the Student Center room 303B, and can be reached at (409) 984-6165.
This course helps add to the students’ overall collegiate experience in the following ways:
|Degree Plan Evaluation||
