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 take into account 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.

We go here at least once a year depending on what we need done. I love getting my full foil highlights as well as,my daughter. My other daughter always does something different and really likes it each time. The prices can't be beat but you do. get what you pay for which means they are students, they are learning And it takes time. My highlights took about 3 hours and my daughter's over 4 so be prepared to spend your whole morning or afternoon at the salon. I would love to try ax massage or facial sometime. Definite recommend and will be back.

Don't waste your time....Would go there, but they are impossible to book an appointment. Their website allows you to "request" an appointment - but that's a misnomer, as there are restrictions on being able to actually book (they only let you book 6 weeks out but you have to call and actually talk to someone to make an appointment). Those who call to "confirm" an appointment aren't much help. It took two different people to actually be able to explain the policy, as one girl couldn't get past the "ums" and "likes" to put together a clear sentence.If you don't book the day any of the spa appointments become available (take your current day and add 6 weeks and that's what's available) you won't get one. I've tried a few times to get appointments but have never had any luck, but I guess you have to call within a day or two 6 weeks in advance and hope they are not booked up. The request for service then online doesn't mean anything as the girls who call to "confirm" your appointment tell you "sorry our books aren't open that far and you need to call back 6 weeks out." Despite having the ability to "request" service online, it's your responsibility to call exactly 6 weeks out to the day, hoping that you actually get someone on the line, and also someone on the line who is competent. Oh well, there are plenty of other places in the Twin Cities to get services, this place is not worth the hassle of having to figure out the exact moment to call to make an appointment...it's supposed to be a relaxing day at the spa, not rocket science.

I love Aveda beauty school. I’ve had numerous appointments there for haircuts, color, highlights and waxing. The students have always been friendly and respectful, professional, and I feel confident that I’ll get what I want. I like the instructors as well and the suggestions they have for the students. They are really good at checking the cut and giving a final touch if needed. I highly recommend services there.

I’ve been going to Aveda since 2009 for relaxers and I have enjoyed the service I get there. The students are well trained and attentive to the needs of their clients. Kathy and Sandra, the instructors are caring to both the students and clients. I have the peace of mind of knowing that with the guidance of experienced instructors, the students give me top notch service. I always look forward to going back to Aveda.

I've been going to Aveda Institute in Minneapolis for about 14 years. I've had facials, haircuts and partial foils and all but one time had wonderful service and great cuts. The one time I didn't have a good cut I went back back in the next day and they were great about. The "fix" was just what I wanted! That was the only time in 14 years. I love Aveda products and the women working in the store are excellent!
