General Institutional Information

Privacy of Student Records
Each student has the right to gain access to her/his cumulative record by appointment under the supervision of an authorized staff member.  Any information pertaining to a student’s cumulative record will be released to a third party only up on written instruction for each request. All of the above rights apply to the parent/guardian if the student is a minor.  School employees, schools to which a student is transferring, certain government officials, parties connected to financial aid, organizations doing studies for a school, accrediting agency, individuals with a court order or subpoena, persons who need to know for health or safety emergencies and state and local authorities to whom disclosure is required are all exempt from obtaining written permission.

Schools may also disclose, without consent, “directory information” such as student’s name, address and phone number of student, date and place of birth, honors and awards and dates of attendance.  However, the school must tell parents and students of the information that is designated as directory information and provide a reasonable amount of time to allow the parent of eligible student to request that the school not disclose that information about them.


FERPA (SAFEGUARDING CUSTOMER INFORMATION)
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)
The FERPA is a Federal law designed to protect the privacy of a student’s educational records.  The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program from the U.S. Department of Education.
The FERPA gives certain rights to parents regarding their children’s educational records.  These rights transfer to the student or former student who has reached the age of 18 or is attending any school beyond the high school level.  Students and former students to whom the rights have transferred are called eligible students.
Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review all of the student’s educational records maintained by the school.  Parents or eligible students must send a written request to the school and identify the records requested.  The school will notify the parents or eligible students about the date and time the records will be available.  This will be done within 45 days of the receipt of the request.  Records will be maintained by the school for five years.  Schools are not required to provide copies of materials in education records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to inspect the records personally.  The school will charge a fee for copies.

Parents and eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records believed to be inaccurate or misleading.  If the school refuses to change the records, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing.  After the hearing, if the school refuses the correction, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement in the records commenting on the contested information in the records.
Generally, the school must have written permission from the parent or eligible student before releasing any information from a student’s record.  An appointment must be made with the admissions office to review the files in their presence.  The law allows schools to disclose records without consent to the following parties:

– School employees who have a need to know.

– Other schools to which a student is transferring.

– Parents when a student over 18 is still dependent.

– Certain government officials in order to carry out lawful functions.

– Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student.

– Accrediting organizations

– Individuals who have obtained court orders or subpoenas.

– Persons who need to know in cases of health and safety emergencies.

– State and local authorities to whom disclosure is required by state laws adopted before November 19, 1974.

Schools may also disclose without consent, directory type information such as a student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, the school must tell the student’s of the information that is designated as director information and provide a reasonable amount of time to allow the parent of eligible students the school will disclose that information about them.

If you have any questions about the FERPA, or if you have a problem in securing your rights under this Act, you may call (202) 410-2057 or write to: Family Policy Compliance Office, Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue S.W., Room 3017, and Washington D.C. 20202-4605.

On-Line FAFSA
You can file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Financial Aid Office.

School Code: 042048

Assistance Available
Financial aid is available, for those who qualify, from a variety of sources. Applicants will be given information and assistance in filling out all necessary forms when receiving grant and loan awards. A private meeting with the Financial Aid Department will be scheduled after the submission of the Application for Admission.
Here is a list of just some of the possible sources for assistance from Federal, State, Local, and other programs. Click on the links for more information.
There are two types of federal aid available to the American College of Barbering students who qualify:
Grants – financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid (unless, for example you withdraw from school and owe a refund)
Loans– allow you to borrow money for your education which must be repaid, with interest, back to the Federal Government.

FEDERAL PELL GRANT (PELL)
Pell grants are the foundation of federal student financial assistance to which aid from other and nonfederal sources might be added.  These grants are generally awarded to undergraduate students and the award amounts can change yearly.  The maximum award for 2013-2014 award year is $5645.00.  unlike loans, grants are not repaid unless, for example, your withdraw from school prior to the program completion date.  All federal grants are awarded to students with financial need.  The amount of your Federal Pell Grant depends on your cost of attendance, expected family contribution, enrollment status (full or part-time), and weather you attend for a full academic year or less.

WILLIAM D. FORD FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN PROGRAM
Student loans, unlike grants, are borrowed money (monies) that must be repaid with interest.  Loans made through this program are referred to as Direct Loans.  Eligible students and parents borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education.  There are two types of loans in the program:

SUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOAN
A student can borrow this type of loan to cover some or all of their school expenses.  The U.S. Department of Education pays the interest whole you’re in school at least half-time.  The amount of the loan cannot exceed a student’s financial need.  The fixed interest rate for 2013-2014 is 3.96 percent.

UNSUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOAN
A student can borrow this type of loan to cover some or all of their school expenses.  The U.S Department of Education does not pay interest on unsubsidized loans.  A student is responsible for paying the interest that accrues on the loan from the time the loan is disbursed until it’s paid in full.
The fixed interest rate of 3.86 percent can be paid while attending school, during a period of deferment or forbearance, or it can be accrued and the interest added to the principal amount of the loan.

PLUS LOANS
Parents of dependent students can borrow form the PLUS Loan Program.  The terms and conditions of this type of loan include a requirement that the applicant have a favorable credit history, a repayment period that begins on the date of the last disbursement of the loan, and a fixed interest rate of 6.41 percent for the Direct Loan.

SEOG
SEOG funds are awarded to students who also demonstrate exceptional financial need; however, unlike the Pell Grant Program, SEOGs are not entitlements.  The school has a set amount of funds for SEOG’s and cannot award any more funds once the allocation is used up.  The school will select the neediest of its students for this award (with priority given to Pell Grant recipients).  Due to the minimal amount of money allocated to the school, student awards will average between $100 and $500.

Veterans’ Education Benefits
American College of Barbering is approved for veteran’s
educational benefits for veterans, eligible dependents of deceased or
disabled veterans and active status National Guard and Reserve personnel.
Any student interested in this type of benefit must verify with the school
representative that the school is eligible for Benefits.

PENALTIES FOR DRUG LAW VIOLATIONS
Notice to Students Concerning Penalties for Drug Violations
Students are hereby notified that federal guidelines mandate that a federal or state drug conviction can disqualify a student for Federal Student Aid funds. Convictions only count if they were for an offense that occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving Title IV aid–they do not count if the offense was not during such a period. Also, a conviction that was reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record does not count, nor does one received when he/she was a juvenile, unless the student was tried as an adult. The chart below illustrates the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, depending on whether the conviction was for sale or possession and whether the student had previous offenses. A conviction for sale of drugs includes convictions for conspiring to sell drugs.

  Possession of Illegal Drugs Sale of Illegal Drugs
1st Offense 1 year from date of conviction 2 years from date of conviction
2nd Offense 2 years from date of conviction Indefinite period
3+ Offenses Indefinite period Indefinite period

 

If the student was convicted of both possessing and selling illegal drugs, and the periods of ineligibility are different, the student will be ineligible for the longer period.
Students denied eligibility for an indefinite period can regain it only after successfully completing an approved rehabilitation program or if a conviction is reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for possession remain on the record. In such cases, the nature and dates of the remaining convictions will determine when the student regains eligibility.
