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.

I'm finding it convenient that the most recent reviews are trying to paint a different picture of an owner that has a proven track record of being unprofessional, dishonest, disengaged etc. Seems a bit staged.... Just like the photo of her cutting hair....try palm to palm, it will help the students learn the correct technique. 🤷‍♀️
