(x) Services for Individuals with Disabilities.
All facilities and programs have been designed for the accommodation of all our employees, students, and patrons. We do realize, however, that all needs may not be met for those who are disabled, including without limitation, those with intellectual disabilities. If there is an unmet need that we can remedy, please contact the lead instructor at his or her respective campus during regular business hours to discuss measures to make our facilities and services more accessible for all people. If a prospective or current student has a disability requiring an academic adjustment, he or she should notify his/her lead instructor, an Admissions Representative and/or a Student Services Representative. Upon receiving a request for an academic adjustment, Texas Barber College will require the student to provide documentation prepared by an appropriate professional, such as a medical doctor, psychologist, or other qualified diagnostician, which should include the following: (i) a diagnosis of the student’s current disability; (ii) supporting information, such as the date of diagnosis, how the diagnosis was reached, and the credentials of the diagnosing professional; (iii) information on how the student’s disability affects a major life activity; and (iv) information on how the disability affects the student’s academic performance. Texas Barber College may request additional information if necessary to determine what is an appropriate academic adjustment. Students are expected to engage in an interactive process with Texas Barber College to help determine the most appropriate and effective accommodation, including without limitation, suitable auxiliary aids. Accommodations will be determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the documentation, the student’s history and specific functional limitations.
Service animals are welcome in all Texas Barber College facilities. A “service animal” is defined any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability.
(xi) Career and Placement Services Offered to Students during and after Enrollment.
Job Placement: The Student Services Department is willing to assist its graduates in finding suitable employment. However, Texas Barber College cannot and will not guarantee a job to any student. Job placement statistics are obtained by the Student Services Department through written responses provided by TBC students who are close to completion of their program as well as post-graduation confirmation by phone.The primary type of employment obtained by TBC graduates are stylist positions at barber shops and salons.
Student Counseling: Counseling services are made available to students approaching completion. Elements of this counseling include: tips on interviewing, writing a résumé, and professional appearance.
Continuous Listing of Job Opportunities: Job leads will be documented by the Student Services Representatives and will be made available for review in their office during normal business hours for all students approaching graduation. Additionally, these leads may be posted in the senior theory classroom and/or break room.
Placement Rate: The job placement rate as reported to TBC’s accreditor, The Council on Occupational Education (COE), for 2021-2022 was 72%. The numerator for TBC’s placement rate calculation is the total number of licensed TBC graduates who are employed in an occupation related to the field of barbering. The denominator used to calculate the placement rate is the total number of licensed TBC graduates, but excludes graduate completers waiting to take the licensure exam, graduate completers unavailable for employment, and graduate completers who refused employment.
(xii) Policies Relating to Transfer of Credit from Other Schools
Credit from a previous enrollment from any institution, including a program from TBC, for a student enrolling with TBC is subject to approval by the Student Services Department. The student is responsible for submitting an official transcript from TDLR. All transfer students must purchase a complete kit, Students are encouraged to purchase their kit directly from TBC, but they can opt out and purchase their kit from another source. If the re-enrollee opts out of purchasing a kit from TBC, he or she must obtain approval of his/her kit from a Campus Director.
Students must have their transfer hours posted and marked as “paid” on TDLR’s website before beginning their enrollment. Failure to do so will result in the rejection of a student’s transfer hours. Barring special circumstances, and subject to the discretion of TBC, TBC will not recognize transfer hours that have been posted and/or marked as “paid” after a student’s start date.
If a student has recognized transfer hours from another school, he/she will be charged a prorated portion of the program tuition. This prorated amount will be calculated by dividing the total amount of hours the student needs for licensure by the total amount of hours for the full program. This percentage will then be multiplied by the total amount of tuition for the full program.
Students who wish to transfer between two TBC campuses may do so once per calendar year. Requests for transfer are made to a Student Services Representative. Transferring students will be charged $100 transfer fee.
