Can you clarify the statement for me for our school? If I am reading the highlighted correctly, the (10) day attendance rule no longer applies to students after they have past the point of a refund? Am I right to assume that schools no longer need to drop a student based to attendance after they are past the point of a refund? The last term of our Medical Assistant program has an externship/internship component that extends past the point where a refund is due (generally after the first week of externship has been completed by student). At times we have had student's that need to be… >>>
I am opening my first cosmetology/esthetics/nail tech/massage school and it will be opening in Texas. I am a novice and need some help.

Is there certain important documents I… >>>
With smaller schools in mind, does a designee need to register as a representative if they in the absence of a school director, the designee is meeting with presepective students and approving enrollment contracts?

The only answer that fits is the one reguarding two substantial complaints regarding programs in the previous year, after reviewing section 807.5 Exemptions or page 9 of the pdf link provided at the top of the quiz, yet I got this counted against me. Does anyone know why? Or is this just a known trick question.
If a representative heard someone at restaraunt or store talking about being recently laid off, could that representative offer their business card to the laid off individual, or would that fall into unallowed?
As a school with program hours greater than 200 hrs, and regular attendance recorded and tracked,students are at risk for attendance probation when they exceed 20% absence of the course scheduled time. QUESTIONS: (1) is that 20 % of the entire course time scheduled for the term or at the point where the student has exceeded 20% absence relative to the completed scheduled time to date? That is...after 5 weeks of classes the calculated absence to scheduled time exceeds 20%...should the student be placed on attendance probation or terminate at that point? (2) Are there "mitigating" circumstances that can be… >>>
