RETURN OF TITLE IV FUNDS ADDENDUM

The Title IV law now specifies how our school must determine the amount of Title IV program assistance that you earn if you withdraw. Our institution will calculate the amount of Title IV aid that you have earned based upon a payment period as set forth by Federal standards. Refunds will continue to be calculated by the enrollment period and disbursed within 45 days in the following order: ·PLUS (parental) Loans ·Unsubsidized Loan ·Subsidized Loan ·PELL Grant The student will be obligated for any tuition, fees, books or equipment not covered by Title IV funds. When you withdraw during a payment period, the amount of SFA program assistance that you have earned up to that point is determined by a specific formula mandated by the Federal government. If you have received (or your school on your behalf) less assistance than the amount that you earned for the payment period, you will be able to receive those additional funds. If you have received more assistance than you have earned, the excess funds must be returned. Example: As a clock hour school, the amount of assistance that you have earned is determined on a pro-rata basis. That is, if you completed 30 percent of the payment period, you earn 30 percent of the assistance you were originally scheduled to receive for the payment period. This percentage is determined by dividing the number of hours you should have completed were you present the entire time, excluding any leave of absence, divided by the number of hours in the payment period. For instance, if you were actually present for 200 class hours but were absent for 25 hours that you were contracted and scheduled to be in class, your percentage calculation will be based on 225 hours divided by the number of hours in the payment period. Once you have completed more than 60 percent of the payment period, you have earned all of your assistance and no refund to Title IV is due. If you receive excess funds that must be retuned according to this calculation, your school must return a portion of the excess equal to the lesser of: ·Your institutional charges (which are prorated for the payment period) multiplied by the unearned percentage of your funds, or · the entire amount of the excess funds. If your school is not required to return all of the excess funds, you must return the remaining amount, even if all of the funds were applied to your school account. Any loan funds that you must return, you (or your parent for a PLUS loan) repay in accordance with the terms of the promissory note. That is, you make scheduled payments to the holder of the loan over a period of time. If you are responsible for returning grant funds, you do not have to return the full amount. The law provides that you are not required to return 60 percent of the grant assistance that you receive that is your responsibility to repay. Any amount that you do not have to return is a grant overpayment and you must pay the school that amount, in full, within 30 days or you must make arrangements with the US Department of Education to return the funds This new policy will replace any withdraw calculation or refund policy currently in effect. This applies to cash pay students also.

ADMINISTRATIVE POLICIES

Satisfactory Progress requires a "D" or better average upon completion of 25% of the program and a "C" or better average upon completion of 50% of the program. If the student falls below a "D" average at any time after completing 50% of the program, the student will be placed on probation for the next 30-day period. If he/she does not bring the average up to a "C" within the probationary period, he/she will be terminated and all Federal financial assistance will cease. Students can continue to receive financial aid while on probation. For a student to be eligible to receive financial aid, he/she must be an active student, attending classes on a full time basis. Full time students at the Academy of Palm Beach are expected to attend 24 hours per week. If a student must take a leave of absence, financial aid will cease to be distributed until the student returns to active status. If a student terminates enrollment, financial aid will stop on the last day of attendance and any refunds will be distributed to the appropriate agency. A student must satisfactorily complete a minimum number of hours (percentage of whole) toward his/her educational goal based on time increments and complete his/her course in a maximum time frame, which must be no longer than 150% of the published length of the program. For example, the Beauty Therapy program is 900 clock hours and normally takes 9 months to complete. A student taking 24 hours per week must complete a 451 hour payment period with a "C" average within 6 3/4 months. The entire 900-clock hour program must be completed within 13 1/2 months. This extension is granted only if students qualify. All other programs and schedules will be computed proportionally. Course incompletes, repetition, and non-credit remedial courses generally do not apply and will have no effect on satisfactory progress. TO APPEAL AN UNSATISFACTORY PROGRESS DETERMINATION: A student who has been terminated due to unsatisfactory progress may appeal to the Director in cases of mitigating circumstances (such as illness, death in the family, etc.). This appeal must be in writing. The decision of the Director will be final. TO REESTABLISH ELIGIBILITY OF TITLE IV FINANCIAL AID: A student who does not maintain satisfactory progress must successfully achieve a "C" academic average and be within the maximum time frame to reestablish eligibility for Federal Funds. This may be achieved by making up hours, taking retests, and/or completing practical work satisfactorily. Upon reentry, students receiving Federal Financial Aid will not be disbursed additional funds until hours previously paid for have been completed successfully and the student achieves satisfactory progress as described above.

ADMINISTRATIVE POLICIES

Leave of Absence Policy

The United States Department of Education has mandated a strict policy regarding leave of absences. Therefore, to remain in compliance with the Department of Education's standards, the Academy of Palm Beach's leave of absence policy is as follows. Also, any leave of absences besides the following, must be approved by the director of training prior to the leave being granted:

·Jury Duty · Military Leave · Medical Illness · Family Emergency Child Care ·Vacations ·Other (at the discretion of the director) 1. All leave requests must be in writing and prior to the leave being granted unless unforeseen circumstances arise and prevent this. However, you must come in at the earliest possible time to complete a leave of absence form. Failure to do so will result in absence charges being applied to your account for missed days as set forth in the catalog. If you are a Financial Aid student, you must have the following forms completed and turned in prior to your leave being granted. All forms must be complete with signatures. This is the student's responsibility. ·ISIR · Entrance and Exit forms · Promissory Notes · Credit Balance Holding Authorization

4.

All students requesting a leave must have a 70% grade point average and must not have excessive absence (i.e. not exceeding 10 absences within a 30 day period). Also, all fees must be paid current ( i.e. tuition, absence fees, late fees, etc.).

Any leave request for a vacation will only be granted for 30 days.

Student's who are on leave must return to school on the return date listed on the leave of absence form or call to extend the leave prior to the leave end date or you will be dropped from the program. THIS IS A UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION REQUIREMENT. Students are permitted only one leave of absence unless one is for Military leave and this must be documented with signed affidavit from the Armed Services. Granting leave of absence does not excuse the student from making up promptly all work, tests and quizzes missed for any reason during the course of study and from making tuition payments as required in his/her enrollment agreement.

Special Cases

In the case of prolonged illness or accident, death in the family, or other circumstances that make it impractical to complete the course of study, the school shall charge the student only for the classroom hours attended and clinical/practical hours completed. A certificate of completion will be given to all students who successfully complete the courses of study, pass all final examinations, pay all tuition fees in full and comply with all Academy rules and regulations.

16

ATTENDANCE POLICIES

Students are encouraged to attend classes regularly. The student who is going to be absent is requested to call the school beforehand. Five days of un-excused absence, or 30 hours missed in a 30- day period, may result in a warning. Seven days of un-excused absence, or 42 hours missed in a 30- day period, may result in a student being placed on probation. Ten days of un-excused absence, or 60 hours missed in a 30-day period, may result in a student being dismissed from the program. Excused Absences ­ For an absence to be excused, a student must present one of the following: 1. A note from a physician, dentist, hospital, etc. 2. A note from your employer. 3. A note from court. 4. A note in regards to your child's absence from school. 5. An obituary showing the death of an immediate relative. 6. Travel receipts proving a family emergency. 7. Other excuses will be accepted at the discretion of the campus director. In order to receive credit for an excused absence, the student must turn in written notice of said absence(s) no later than the following Monday from which the absence occurred. If absence notices are received after Monday, the absence will be treated as an un-excused absence and will result in a charge of $6.00 per hour to the student's account. All charges are to be paid promptly as students are not permitted to accumulate a balance. Students missing clinical/practical hours have an option of making up these classes on Saturday, or during another scheduled class with the permission of the Director of Training. Missing clinical/practical hours is discouraged and will not be tolerated if it acts to prolong a student's stay in school thus interfering with the student's expected date of graduation and could cause additional fees in order to graduate.

Tardiness

A Student is considered tardy, if he/she enters class more than five minutes after the scheduled start time. All students are strongly urged to be in class at the time the instruction is scheduled to begin. Students who consistently enter class after the scheduled start time will receive a warning. If a student is tardy, he/she will not be permitted into the class until the class break, which is approximately midway through the scheduled time period. Three un-excused tardies within a 30-day period, may result in a warning to the student. Five un-excused tardies within a 30-day period, may result in the student being placed on probation. Seven un-excused tardies in a 30-day period, may result in the student being dismissed from the program.

Make-up Work Policy

1. A student who is absent from class is required to make-up all: assignments, quizzes, tests, and reports that correspond to that class. 2. A student missing classroom hours of anatomy and physiology will be required to make up those hours, either by attending the specific class missed at another scheduled time by watching the required anatomy and physiology videos from the school's video library, or by completing a project assigned by the Director of Training, corresponding to the specific classes missed (excused or un-excused). In all cases, the Director of Training will determine the method of making up missed classes for the student. 3. A student missing Massage Theory and Clinical Practice hours will be required to make-up the hours by attending Massage Theory and Clinical Practice at another scheduled time. 4. Any hours missed by a student in any other areas of study are required to be made-up on an hour-for-hour basis, by attending the class at another scheduled time, by watching the required videos from the school's video library, or by completing a project assigned by the Director of Training, corresponding to the specific subject missed. 5.
