 Grading:
 Students will be tested and receive a letter grade after the completion of each theory course module
· In most instances, tests will be graded during class, immediately after the completion of the test, and after recording the results on student’s individual grade sheet, the test will be returned to student.
· Students will be tested on their Basic Practical Operations at the end of the freshmen class hours and upon evaluation by the freshmen class Instructor, will be approved to graduate to work on the clinic floor.
· Students will be assessed at 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of their class attendance (depending upon class
        clock hours) and receive a grade as outlined in the SAP (see page 16 of this catalog)
· Students will receive a copy of their progress report upon the completion of each evaluation period.
· Overall grades are determined on the basis of the student’s attitude and his/her ability to perform
        elements of the course curriculum. Approximately 25 percent of the grade will be based upon written
        tests, 50 percent, upon attendance and the remaining 25 percent is based upon practical performance
        skills.

Letter Grades are determined as follows:

90% to 100% “A” Excellent

80% to 89% “B” Good

70% to 79% “C” Average

60% to 69% “D” Needs to Retake Test

Students need to
retake tests scored below 70%. 70% is the minimum requirement.


Students must maintain a “C” average for successful progression and graduation. Students who meet the minimum requirements for attendance and academic progress shall be considered to be making SATISFACTORY PROGRESS until the next scheduled evaluation. Students who do not meet such requirements shall be deemed to be either (1) On Probation, or (2) Not Making Satisfactory Progress.

 

 

STUDENTS WILL BE EVALUATED AT THE END OF EACH TIME PERIOD TO DETERMINE

WHETHER THIS MINIMUM STANDARD IS BEING MET.

 

The following chart is a guideline to demonstrate the minimum amount of hours of scheduled training,

which must be completed by the end of each evaluation period in order to graduate within the maximum

time frame of 150%. In addition to hours, the academic achievements of the student will be evaluated by a

compilation of examination scores (written and practical), and such other criteria and observations, as the school administration deems appropriate in the training of technical personnel.

SECTION FOUR: ACADEMIC POLICIES

hours per week (2/3 x 30 = 20).  Regardless of the average level of attendance, students who have more than four consecutive weeks of absences (30 calendar days) may be dismissed. This standard shall apply to all students except those on an approved Leave of Absence (see LOA policy). Students who expect to be absent 30 or more days up to 60 days are encouraged to request a Leave of Absence. In addition to attendance standards relating to Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), students are also required to adhere to certain other general institutional policies relating to attendance and tardiness. These policies are outlined in the “Standards of Conduct and Disciplinary Action” notice.

3.         Complete the course within one and one-half (1-1/2) times the length of the course as defined in the enrollment agreement. For example, if the student has contracted to complete the course within 40 weeks, he or she must complete within 60 weeks. If this time frame is not met, the school has the right to charge the student an extra instruction charge calculated on an hourly rate established by the school. (Refer to Enrollment Contract for calculated charges pursuant to individual’s contracted course time).

4.         Students must meet minimum academic and attendance requirements for at least one evaluation prior to the midpoint (50%) of the course to be considered as meeting satisfactory progress at the end of an

            evaluation period. A student will be considered to be making satisfactory progress until the next evaluation.

5. Appeals: Students who feel that they have been given an unsatisfactory report in error may request, in writing, that a review of their academic and attendance records be evaluated by administrative personnel or Director. The review will be conducted and then discussed with the student at a scheduled meeting.  Any findings will be recorded in the student’s record.

EVALUATION PERIODS:

 Student compliance with the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is divided into evaluation periods and may be assessed at each of the following times, based upon the course of study.

 · The point at which 25% of the course is scheduled to be completed:

· The point at which 50% of the course is scheduled to be completed:

· The point at which 75% of the course is scheduled to be completed:

· The point at which 100% of the course is scheduled to be completed:

The point of actual completion or within 150% of scheduled time.

SECTION FOUR: ACADEMIC POLICIES               


ATTENDANCE POLICY

Students are expected to attend classes at the scheduled starting time and to continue as scheduled

throughout the day per their enrollment agreement. All absences and class attendance is regularly recorded. It is the responsibility of the student to telephone in advance to advise administrative personnel if they will be absent or late, as in the same way an employee would be expected to inform his/her employer. Students who are enrolled as full-time students are required to be in attendance a minimum of one hundred twelve hours (160) per month.  Students who are enrolled as 3/4 students are required to be in attendance a minimum of one hundred-twenty hours (120) per month.  Students who do not meet the minimum required hours and have not requested a formal Leave of Absence (LOA) or valid documentation for absences such as a doctor’s note, will be considered over their contract and may be subject to additional fees.

Students are issued a name badge and student ID#. Students are required to use the manual time clock to keep accurate record of their hours.

A.        Absence

Satisfactory attendance must be maintained.  All course work missed due to absences must be made up. Tests may be made up on Mondays.  One unexcused absence or five (5) total absences per month are considered excessive.

B.         Tardiness

Tardiness produces a disruption to a good learning environment and is discouraged. Students are to be in class at the scheduled time. Excessive tardiness is grounds for probation and/or suspension. Any time after 8:07 a.m. is considered tardy.  No admittance to class after 8:15 a.m.

C.         Class Cuts

The only way one can gain from the time and money spent in training is to participate on a regular basis, therefore, a class cut shall be considered equal to an absence. All practical applications and theory hour requirements must be completed before the end of the contract before considered as having graduated.

D.        Leave of Absence (LOA)

A student may request a LOA by notifying the school in person, by mail, fax, or email. The request will be considered and the leave may be granted to a student at the discretion of the school administration. Upon approval, the dates of the LOA will be entered in the student’s computer file and the student will be provided a LOA form for signature. A non-medical LOA should not exceed a period of 60 days in duration and a medical leave may be requested for a maximum of 180 days. Failure to return within the time frame of the leave, or any unexcused, continued absence for 30 days, will result in the student being dropped from the program. Leave length may be extended upon school evaluation of extenuating circumstances and reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
 

SECTION THREE: ADMINISTRATIVE POLICIES

 
BREAK AND LUNCH SCHEDULES

Each student enrolled for eight (8) hours per day will be given two fifteen (15) minute breaks every day.

Students enrolled for six (6) hours a day will receive one (1) fifteen minute break. All students will take their breaks when designated by their instructor. Arrangement for breaks at times other than when designated must be approved by an instructor and acknowledged by the reception desk. Upon enrollment the student will be told the schedule for lunch times. This schedule may vary based upon the number of students enrolled at any given time as space is limited and student convenience and comfort is considered in the scheduling. It may be that students may take lunch at noontime or in between their practical work schedules with customers, or the administrative staff may find it necessary to implement something entirely different.   In any case, all students are encouraged to take a lunch break for their health and well being and it is mandatory that  a half hour break is taken after each six (6) hours of attendance.  Please Note: Clocking in/out for lunch is mandatory.

STUDENT GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

This institution is dedicated to fair dealing and professional conduct. Should any student have a complaint, the student is asked to discuss the matter directly with an instructor or administrator. That instructor or administrator will engage in an informal process endeavoring to settle the dispute in good faith. That informal process will involve three steps: 1: an effort to define the problem, 2: an effort to identify acceptable options for resolution, and 3: an attempt to resolve the conflict through the application of one or more of those options for resolution. The student may thereafter choose to file a written complaint directly with the institution's Chief Academic Officer who will work to resolve the matter. The Chief Academic Officer is the individual designated to resolve student complaints. That individual will investigate all formal (written) complaints, endeavor to resolve all such complaints, and record an entry into the institution's official log. The formal process will involve 1. The student's submission of a written description of the specific allegations and the desired remedy, accompanied by any available documentary items. The filing deadline is 60 days after the beginning date of the term following that in which the dispute(s) occurred or are alleged to have occurred. 2. The student may terminate the formal process should, in the interim, the informal process produce a satisfactory resolution. 3. The Chief Academic Officer will notify all parties involved of the receipt and nature of the grievance. If a policy is being grieved, the administrator responsible for the policy will be notified. 4. A timeline for resolution will be delivered to the principles by the Chief Academic Officer. 5. Interested parties will communicate with the CAO in order to make recommendations to resolve the grievance. 6. The party responsible for implementing the selected method of resolution will notify the principals of the decision reached. In the event that a student does not agree to the resolution proposed, the student retains the right to file a complaint with the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, Sacramento, CA.

STUDENT RECORDS RETENTION POLICY

Student records for all students are kept for five years. Transcripts are kept permanently. Students may inspect and review their educational records. To do so, a student should submit a written request identifying the specific information to be reviewed. Should a student find, upon review, that records that are inaccurate or misleading, the student may request that errors be corrected? In the event that a difference of opinion exists regarding the existence of errors, a student may ask that a meeting be held to resolve the matter. Each student's file will contain student's records, including a transcript of grades earned. The first copy of the official transcript is provided at no charge. Subsequent copies are available upon advance payment of the transcript fee of $25.00 for two copies. Transcripts will only be released to the student upon receipt of a written request bearing the student's live signature. No transcript will be issued until all tuition and other fees due the institution are paid current.  It is strongly recommended that a student retain ALL ENROLLMENT, WITHDRAWAL or COMPLETION papers in their personal files.

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY:

Urban Oasis Academy of Beauty does not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, creed, religion, or physical disabilities.  However, it must be kept in mind that in most aspects of the beauty culture field there is a great deal of standing, walking, pushing, bending and stretching, and sometimes for long periods of time.  A person must consider his/her physical limitations in terms of making a career choice that involves extensive training.  We promote the acceptance of students who may be physically challenged if the student believes he/she can fulfill training demands at our facility and succeed in such a way that would not preclude employment within the student’s area of study, to include areas in administration, counseling, training, placement employment or any other activities.

MANAGEMENT TEAM AND KEY STAFF

 

Robin D. Hunt: President/CEO/Director of Academic Affairs/Owner

Ms. Hunt is a small business owner and educator at San Jose City College, and a single parent here in the Silicon Valley.  After overcoming several adversities in the last two decades with grit and confidence, she has managed to not only rise but also create small successes along the way.  She was featured in the headlines of the San Jose Mercury News in November 2000 for her personal growth and accomplishments in overcoming her adversities and becoming a successful business owner.  A year later, she received the Elks Award for her contributions to the community.  Her passion has been to give her children a better life as well as being a role model for the younger generation in our community.  Her vision and mission in life is to provide training and education for those in the community who have lost their way, hopeless, and are unable to provide for their families; to assist them in becoming productive members of society, instilling in them a sense of achievement, belonging, and worthiness.  It is her soul’s desire to make a difference in the world today, one community at a time.

 

 

Paula Sanchez-Wilson: Lead Educator

Paula started her career in Cosmetology in 1976 at San Jose Beauty College and began teaching in 1982.  She is bi-lingual and has worked in many settings from private schools to community colleges sharing her knowledge and experience with students for 28 years.  She has competed in and won all major hair show competitions in California.  She has found great joy in coaching students to compete.  She feels that when students compete and specialize in a particular area of hair care they enhance their cosmetology careers because it allows them to showcase their artistic skills and thus encourages them to perfect their hair styling techniques — cosmetology is more than just hair care.  Her passion is her career in cosmetology and looks forward to her continued work with students to help them achieve their goals as a cosmetologist.

SECTION FIVE: STUDENT SERVICES

HOUSING

The school does not maintain housing for students, nor does it make specific recommendations regarding housing, however, some accommodations are available within the local communities and information will be provided as available to the school via the internet or media publications.

TRANSPORTATION

Public bus transportation is available throughout the Silicon Valley (city of San Jose) with stops located close to the school facilities. It may also be possible for the School to link students, with similar schedules, together for transportation to and from classes. 

CAREER ADVISING AND PERSONAL ATTENTION

Students are counseled individually, as often as necessary; at least every six weeks, to review the student’s progress and adjustment. Successful salon owners and stylists are scheduled into the school regularly to give demonstrations and discuss career goals, etc. with the students. This activity is conducted in addition to the daily counseling carried out by the educators. Students may request additional counseling sessions at any time. Students are given as much personal attention and assistance as requested at every stage of training from the first day of enrollment to the day of graduation. At predetermined intervals, evaluations are conducted to assess the rate and quality of the student and any remedial assignments are made when required. Particular attention is always given to the preparation for the Bureau of Barbering & Cosmetology Examination.

PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING

The School does not maintain professional counselors at the schools, nor do we recommend students to seek outside professional help.  Regular school staff is not licensed or trained as professional therapeutic counselors and cannot provide professional on-going or long-term counseling for those students needing that type of help. The staff is always willing to listen to a student at any time and provide available information. Any student requesting medical assistance for situations other than the immediate need for first aid or a life-threatening situation will be given a list of public clinics and hospitals in the immediate proximity of the school facility. This list is not to be construed as a recommendation by the school, but rather as a free service provided as a courtesy by the School to its students.

DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION PROGRAM

The School fully supports the Drug-Free School and Communities Act of the United States Congress. In cooperation with other agencies and organizations, the school provides educational materials on the dangers of substance use and abuse.

SECTION THREE: ADMINISTRATIVE POLICIES

 
 Training on quality equipment in pleasant and comfortable surroundings allows students to gain skills and confidence.  Adhering to strict standards of professional behavior enhances their future for quality employment opportunities and aides in developing their skills to the fullest capacity.

 The school does not offer ESL (English as Second Language) courses.  Classes and materials will be given in English and, as the need arises; Spanish translation or interpretation of materials may be made available. However, bi-lingual students are encouraged to practice reading and speaking English during their studies at the school.  Cosmetology students may choose to take the written State Board Examination in Spanish or request an interpreter

EDUCATIONAL METHODOLOGY

The training programs are structured using clinic settings as close to actual working conditions of a salon as
possible.  The practical “hands-on” application accounts for 50 to 60 percent of the training program.  Each
Module within the curriculum is geared toward a specific area in the Cosmetology.  The educators are aware that individuals learn at different degrees of speed and ability, therefore training is on an individual basis.  Educators are aware of the importance of this and makes every attempt to guide students in a unique and thorough, step-by-step, gradual method of learning.  This combination of individual attention and positive motivation is important for reaching the objectives of the training curriculum.  Learning in a safe, friendly, comfortable, and professional atmosphere enables the student to ultimately become a highly qualified professional in the beauty culture field of their choosing.  Those persons who are interested in pursuing a new career are welcomed by UOAB.  Before the beginning of each new class session, interested persons will be encouraged to visit the school and speak with the administrative staff and consider the many advantages awaiting the serious student.

SECTION FIVE: STUDENT SERVICES
PRIOR TO GRADUATION

· The School Administrators maintain a job bank listing by monitoring newspaper advertisements, checking with the local California State Employment Development Department and by networking with salon owners through local professional organizations in an effort to keep informed of available positions within the community and these will be posted for student review.

· The school may also conduct and/or participate in periodic Job Fair Seminars, bringing in local salon owners and managers to talk to the students about the diversity in the positions available at their establishments.  A position at a spa may put emphasis on totally different skills than at a salon, and by providing these guest speakers the students will come to understand the need to take advantage of the diverse and expanded education offered them at this school so that they may be prepared and qualified to acquire stable employment in their chosen fields.

· The school participates with local salons in an Externship Program whereby senior students who have completed 75% of their required course hours can go to a salon and assist a licensed professional for no more than 10% of their total course hours for no more than 8 hours per week. (i.e. Cosmetologist 160 hrs).

Should the student’s GPA fall below that required for graduation, a student may be placed on academic probation. This will result in a formal advisory, which will be sent to the student by mail, explaining the reason for the probation. After the completion of the currently enrolled term, the student will have two additional terms to bring his or her grade point average up to or exceeding the minimum standard of the institution. Thereafter, the student’s failure to achieve satisfactory academic progress may result in dismissal from the program. The Chief Academic Officer will offer assistance in locating a suitable tutor, should such service be requested by the student. Any student seeking a tutor is financially responsible for the cost of all such tutoring.

PROGRESS POLICY:

All students, regardless of their enrollment or the tuition payment classification of their enrollment (i.e. Title IV participant, Private Loan, Private Pay, and State Program etc.) will be evaluated using the criteria of the SAP to receive an academic and attendance evaluation based upon their course hours and schedule of attendance. Students may progress through the phases of the curriculum at a varied pace, however, all students must satisfactorily complete the required amount of subject matter prior to being able to make pre-application for the state board examination and must complete all minimum requirements of hours and operations prior to graduation. (The exception being, when credit is allowed for previous training or experience in a specific subject area then that balance of operations and procedures must be completed prior to graduation).

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP): STANDARDS:

The Chief Academic Officer may place a student on academic probation if the student is not making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) as per this institution's published policy. The student's grade point average will be monitored at the end of each enrollment period as the grades are posted. Should the student’s GPA fall below that required for graduation, a student may be placed on academic probation. This will result in a formal advisory, which will be sent to the student by mail, explaining the reason for the probation. After the completion of the currently enrolled term, the student will have two additional terms to bring his or her grade point average up to or exceeding the minimum standard of the institution. Thereafter, the student’s failure to achieve satisfactory academic progress may result in dismissal from the program. The Chief Academic Officer will offer assistance in locating a suitable tutor, should such service be requested by the student. Any student seeking a tutor is financially responsible for the cost of all such tutoring.

  The student must:

1.         Maintain a cumulative academic average of “C” (70%. or better on all tests, work projects (operations) and other required course work.

2.         Maintain a cumulative average attendance level of at least two-thirds (2/3) (67%) of the scheduled hours indicated on their  enrollment contract. For example, a student scheduled to complete 30 hours per week would have to maintain an average weekly attendance of at least 20
