Professional Standards Policies and Procedures
To help you achieve excellence in Barbering, we have established these guidelines to ensure fairness, understanding and positive work habits among our future professionals. To help prepare you for the workplace, Graham’s Barber College operates much like a professional salon environment. Late arrivals, absences and other interruptions in your training have a significant effect on your achievement- just as they would if you were an employee in a salon, day spa or other professional environment. By law, we must keep track of your training hours for licensure or certification.

Attendance Progress

For a student to be deemed making satisfactory attendance progress (quantitative), the student must maintain a minimum attendance average of 67%. Evaluations are conducted at the end of each evaluation period to determine if the student has met the minimum requirements. The attendance percentage is determined by dividing the total hours accrued (clocked by the student), by the total number of hours scheduled. At the end of each evaluation period, the school will determine if the student has maintained at least 67% cumulative attendance since the beginning of the course which indicates that, given the same attendance rate, the student will graduate within the maximum time frame of 150% times the length of the course.
