The National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS) is recognized by the United States Department of Education as a national accrediting agency for post-secondary schools and programs of cosmetology arts and sciences.
PLACEMENT RATE METHODOLOGY
The placement rate is based on graduates from the NACCAS graduation cohort (student scheduled to graduate from the program in 2014) who are employed in a field for which their training prepared them prior to November 30, 2015. Students would be considered ineligible if the graduate:
- Is deceased
- Is permanently disabled
- Deployed for military service/duty
- Studied under a student visa and is ineligible for employment in the United States
- Continued his/her education at an institution under the same ownership
The placement rate is calculated by dividing the number of graduates who were employed in the field by the number of graduates who were eligible for employment and multiplying it by 100. This number is the NACCAS placement rate.
