Placement rates are calculated on students based on their contract date. Students are considered placed if they are employed within their field of study.

All graduates must be declared eligible for placement unless they meet one of the following five conditions for ineligibility:

  1. The graduate is deceased
  2. The graduate is permanently disabled
  3. The graduate is deployed for military service
  4. The graduate studied under a student visa and is ineligible for employment in the U.S.
  5. The graduate continued his/her education at an institution under the same ownership (e.g., a graduate of your cosmetology program subsequently enrolled in the instructor program of an institution under the same ownership)

Please note that being unlicensed is not a valid exclusion/exemption for employment.
