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.

I would recommend that you not go here. I just wanted a quick trim and thought I'd try it out. I called to make sure they were still open and had openings (I was going there with 2 other people and I let them know that). Before I could even finish asking if there were openings, the lady who answered the phone cut me off saying that they only do walk-ins. When I went in, they asked if I made an appointment. When I told the lady at the front about my conversation on the phone, she deliberately gave me an attitude saying "OH. I guess three people are getting their haircuts now." But long story short, one of the people I was with was not old enough to sign the release form for herself. When the lady found this out she gave my even more attitude and dirty looks. I said never mind and walked out. She was VERY RUDE and had a SUPER GHETTO ATTITUDE. No thanks.
