ACCREDITATION

What does accredited mean?

If you're considering more than one beauty school, be sure to ask each one whether they're an accredited beauty school. Empire Beauty Schools are accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences. All of the offered programs are also approved by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences.

According to the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences website, “accreditation means that a school has met national standards of educational performance that have been established by an impartial nongovernmental agency. The accrediting of schools by professional, national, and regional associations of like schools (schools with similar objectives and subject content) has long characterized the American educational scene. Through the years, accreditation of schools has been the most authoritative and reliable index of a school's concern for integrity toward its students and quality education.”

Every Empire Beauty School is held to high standards. We are licensed in each state we call home, and maintain NACCAS (National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences) accreditation. This means that we uphold our reputation for excelling at educational performance and maintaining the quality of your education at all of our schools.

PLACEMENT RATE METHODOLOGY

Accreditor Rate:

The placement rate is based on graduates from the NACCAS graduation cohort (student scheduled to graduate from the program in 2015) who are employed in a field for which their training prepared them prior to November 30, 2016. 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.

STATE RATE (APPLICABLE TO MARYLAND AND NEW YORK ONLY):

State of Maryland

The placement rate is based on graduates from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 that are employed by September 30, 2016. There are no exclusions to the placement cohort.
