Attendance & Graduation Requirements


Cosmix students are expected to have the professional dispositions necessary to be successful in the industry. This includes arriving early and being prepared for class. Academic progress is measured by clock hours, so a student's physical attendance in class is necessary for it to count towards the cumulative attendance. Tardiness and absences will not be excused. In the case of illness; a student must attend unscheduled hours to cover lesson material, practice applications, and be evaluated as deemed necessary by the Instructor.

A student whose attendance falls below 95% at the program midpoint will receive a Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning. A student who is still below the Satisfactory Progress standards at the end of the next evaluation period is subject to termination and overtime charges.

A tardy is being late for the start of class or returning from lunch late, or leaving class early. Students who are tardy more than five times are subject to withdrawal.

Making up Missed Hours & Work
Evaluations & Tests
In the case of illness- written tests or quizzes must be made up on the day of return to school. There is a 10% point deduction for taking a test or quiz late. Makeup evaluations must be arranged with the instructor and made up within the week.

Hours & Makeup Practice Sessions
In the case of illness-students must attend unscheduled hours within the week of their absence.

Leave of Absence
A student who must take a Leave of Absence (LOA) may do so provided he/she has first received approval by the School Administration. Students who are granted a Leave of Absence must state their estimated date of return within 120 days to complete the enrolled program. Students may take more than one LOA providing the maximum amount of time may not exceed 120 days per program. Any student who does not return following the Leave of Absence period will be refunded in accordance to our refund and cancellation policy and withdrawn from the program.

Re-entry Students
Terminated or withdrawn students may apply for re-entry. Such students will be evaluated for placement and a determination of their satisfactory academic progress.

Overtime Charges for Extended Hours
Evaluation periods are divided into our program modules-Beauty, Fashion, Character, Film, TV & Theater, and Special FX. Any student whose attendance falls below 95% during any module will receive a Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning. And if below 95% at the end of the next module is subject to overtime charges of $10 per hour. Students will be advised of the cost and are required to pay the additional charges within 30 days. The Director determines whether a student with low attendance must repeat a course before progressing in a program. If allowed to continue, the student must correct the deficiency by the next consecutive evaluation point.
