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 fulfill all necessary requirements needed.

Poor attendance is a leading reason for termination from a job in all areas of employment. With this factor in mind, the instructor monitors student course activity daily.

Attendance is 10% of your overall grade, and will be monitored daily. (Online & Face to Face)

Face to Face/Lab Times: 9 a.m. 3:30 p.m. Lunch Schedule: 11:00 11:30 or 11:30 12:00. Afternoon Break: 1:30 1:45

Cosmetology Students may clock in as soon as the clock is turned on until 9:a.m. At 9:05 a.m. students will be marked absent.
