Graduation Rate


International Beauty School graduation rate is above the national average.

76% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to International Beauty School completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

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 an extensive number of students. This index 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 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 schools.

I have had both terrific and not so great experiences here. I've been going here monthly for about 3 years and only had 2-3 bad experiences with students. I did have some issues with supervisors not wanting to properly honor a gift card but when I pushed the issue, they did honor it.

I had such a miserable experience (rude, bitter "instructors" and a poorly trained student) that I quit going to hairdressers entirely. Thanks, International, for helping me save a ton of money and learn to appreciate my natural, healthy hair with no weird styling or coloring. It's so enjoyable (and financially beneficial) not being part of the mindless, look-alike herd, haha!

My name is Lesa and I went for the first time today to have my hair highlighted, cut and styled. My appointment was for 10:00 with Amanda P. who did not show up and the staff, very friendly, stated she had not called in. They put me with Rachel at 10:15 and it was so meant to be!!! Rachel did an amazing job with my highlights and got me to the exact color I had been wanting. Rachel did a very nice cut and style for me. I so appreciate all that Rachel did for me. The salon was very clean and the front desk staff were all friendly. The teachers were always making sure everything was how I wanted and were also very friendly.
