Student Code of Conduct

Admission to Victoria’s Academy of Cosmetology carries with it the assumption that the student is committed to a course of study which carries certain rights and responsibilities. These are as follows:
• Assume the major responsibility for self-directed learning.
• Complete in a pre-determined sequence of theory and practical courses, taken concurrently
• Retain and integrate beginning knowledge with subsequent learning
• Achieve the program objectives within the given time frame
• Retain all course materials and textbooks for reference throughout the entire program
• Share information obtained during an analysis with instructors prior to client services

• Participate and attend classes regularly in order to complete the programs curriculum, competencies and required hours in a timely manner
• Cheating and plagiarism will be subject to suspension or dismissal from the student’s program

Please note: It is the responsibility of the student to provide written notification to the school administration of any changes in address or telephone numbers. Having your correct and current address and phone number enables us to contact you if the need arises.

A student may be dismissed for conduct which, in the opinion of the management, disrupts the learning environment in an unfavorable way. Students will not be reinstated unless management is assured that the cause for dismissal has been corrected. Examples are: Being disrespectful to staff, clients or other students, inappropriate appearance, repeated unsafe practical procedures, fresh alcohol consumption, drug use or emotional instability. Unprofessional conduct will not be tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to, swearing, name-calling, gossiping, fighting, and/or yelling. Behavior that is mature, tactful and courteous is expected at all times when dealing with fellow students, staff and clients. All staff and students will treat one another equally, fairly and respectfully at all times.
