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 an extensive number of students.

So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. 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 educational institutions.

[ ATTENTION FUTURE STUDENTS ] ‼️ I really hate to leave this review only on my educators behalf but empire Beauty school is pretty bogus!! I was dropped from the program THREE months before my graduation because my attendance percentage was a 72.50. I was told my attendance had to be a 75% in order to stay at that location or go on a complete opposite side of town to their other location which is nearly impossible being that I have a little one. Things at this school started off ok and went down hill from there. My entire time there we had no academic advisor, front desk personnel etc. The school is full of drama and small minded individuals. It almost reminded me of being back in high school. From coming in everyday sitting in assigned seats to the “director” picking about the dress code. [dress pants only], not having product, be prepared for a lot of unexpected expenses & twist and turns. The school is a bottomless money pit. Please don’t quit your job to come here!! You’ll regret it . I would NOT recommend this school or ANY of there schools to anyone who’s actually looking to become a cosmetologist!! It’s not worth the headache. Empire I would like to thank you for dropping me three months before graduation. Thank you for this student loan I’ll have to pay back w/o the license!! Thank you for pushing me into the career I actually wanted to be in to start with.

Love going to this place! I have thick, curly hair and people love to charge an arm and a leg for a thermal! Here I get the benefit of great prices while students are learning.

The only things that are good about this place is the location and the prices. Everything else is God awful. I have scheduled an appointment once a month for the past 6 months. Every time I arrive,my appointment has either been cancelled, moved to someone that I didn't originally schedule it with or the student doesn't show up. Management is no better because they always make excuses and don't hold them accountable. When you complain they make it seem like you are the issue. My time id valuable and I won't waste it, waiting to see if someone may or may not show up. This place is a joke. I have recently started going to aveda. They are knowledgeable, professional and seem genuinely happy to be learning. This place needs to get it together before they get closed down.
