Course Information
Course Number70156
Course Description A course designed to help students prepare to take the State of Texas examination required for licensure.
Course Prerequisites Must have completed a minimum of 600 clock hours to enroll in Summer 2.
Required Textbooks Milady's Standard Cosmetology Textbook 4th edition, Theory Workbook and Exam Review. A current TDLR Rules and Regulations Book.
Attendance Policy Summer I & II Attendance Policy. Class Schedule : 7:30 to 4:30 - Monday -ThTDLR 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.

(An Amendment of the Student Handbook)

• As a courtesy, an instructor will make every attempt to open the clock at 7:15 a.m. to allow students the opportunity to make-up additional minutes.
Note: This is a courtesy, not a requirement.
• Students may clock in as soon as the clock is turned on until 8 a.m.
• Students are tardy at 8:00 a.m. Students who are tardy will not be allowed to clock in until AFTER first break at 9:45 a.m.
• Tardy students will be counted absent at 9:46 a.m.
• A.M. absences may NOT clock until 12:00 p.m. Upon clocking in, the student must be on the lab floor on task.
• Students must clock out for their lunch breaks. Students not clocking out for lunch will be in violation and written up. Failure to clock in after break or lunch will result in a loss of hours.
• 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.
• You 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 with an excused absence (excluding the final), and you must take the final exam.
• 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. Making up missed hours is a student’s responsibility.ursday 7;30 - 4;30. Refer to student handbook.

Additional Information It is vitally important that you know the Cosmetology Polices. I will not discuss your grade over the phone or by email. If you want to discuss your grade you must come to my office, in person.
Important Information
ADA Considerations The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Special Populations Coordinator, Room 231, in the Madison Monroe Building. The phone number is (409) 984-6241.
Copyright Violations 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 materials 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 Shakespeares 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 Statement 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 programs.

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 wont use your data.

Whats the difference between assessment and grades? The grades you get on papers, projects, speeches, and assignments are specific types of focused assessment. LSC-PAs assessment efforts include class grades, surveys, standardized tests, and other tools.
Privacy Notice 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.

A parent or guardian may be given access to information about a student by providing a copy of a filed tax return that shows that the student was listed as a dependent of that parent or guardian. The tax return must be for last complete tax year. Again, this documentation must be submitted to the Registrars Office.

A parent or guardian may be given access to information about a student if the student logs on to My.LamarPA.edu and sends an email to the Registrar granting permission. The email must specify what information may be given and the name of the person to whom it may be given.

Co-enrollment students are protected by the same privacy laws as adult students.

The Registrars office is located in the Student Center room 303B, and can be reached at (409) 984-6165.

College-Level Perspectives This course helps add to the students overall collegiate experience in the following ways:

  • Establishing broad and multiple perspectives on the individual in relationship to the larger society and world in which s/he lives, and to understand the responsibilities of living in a culturally and ethnically diversified world.

  • Stimulating a capacity to discuss and reflect upon individual, political, economic, and social aspects of life in order to understand ways in which to be a responsible member of society.

  • Developing a capacity to use knowledge of how technology and science affect their lives.

  • Developing personal values for ethical behavior.

  • Developing the ability to make aesthetic judgments.

  • Using logical reasoning in problem solving.

  • Integrating knowledge and understand the interrelationships of the scholarly disciplines.
