The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

There was a job position available and I applied for it. I called to inquire a little bit more regarding the job and the school left my number with the front desk. The person in charge of the hiring process was supposedly in a meeting. Never got back to me. Never called me back then got an email saying they kept going to the next hiring person and I wasn't selected. I am not upset that I was selected. It's part of the process but at least follow through with your words. If someone was to call me back and never did just speaks about how unprofessional this school is. I been rejected for other job positions and that's fine but at least give me a courtesy call back when I had called previously.

What a poor excuse for a school. I’m pretty sure the people at super cuts are more Qualified to teach. The owner Philyis of how ever you spell her name is the most disgusting human being on this planet. She does not care about anything but your money. Do not waist your time or money here go to a school that can actually teach you something. I wouldn’t recommend this place to my dog. You must be pretty terrible at hair if this is the only job you can get teaching at this poor excuse for a school.

I took my Son here today for the free back to school hair cut. Guess you should be careful what you get for free. I couldn't stay with my Son and they told me to wait in the waiting room. They took over 45 mins to cut his hair. He barely had any to begin with. When he finalky came out they barely spoke to me. My Son had hair all over his face, eyes and mouth and the back of his neck was cut several times .They couldn't even tell me they cut him and say sorry. My Son told me the guy cutting his hair barely spoke to him and was talking Spanish the whole time. He said he told him he was hurting him twice and the guy didn't say anything. Horrible place even if it was free
