PROGRAM INTEGRITY & ACCREDITATION
The Professional Cosmetology Academy (TPCA) is licensed by the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR) and nationally accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). TPCA is also subject to the policies and oversight from the United States Department of Education (DE), and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Each agency requires schools to provide valuable information to their current and prospective team members (employees) and all current and prospective students to promote awareness, compliance, and transparency. Such information may also be helpful when questions about policy arise.
Below you will find some helpful links to our school catalog, annual security report, other consumer information documents and disclosures, and other pre-enrollment information that may assist you as you apply for a program or continue your education. For additional information, please reference the school catalog.
SCHOOL CATALOG & CONSUMER INFORMATION
TPCA's School Catalog is a consumer information document that is the official catalog of TPCA and takes precedence over all previously published versions. This catalog is not intended to nor does it contain all policies that relate to students. Students are held individually responsible for complying with all requirements of the rules and regulations of TPCA. Failure to read and comply with policies, regulations, and procedures will not exempt a student from being governed by and accountable to them.
ANNUAL REPORT: GRADUATION, LICENSURE, & PLACEMENT RATES
Each agency requires schools to provide valuable information regarding outcome rates in the areas of graduation, placement, and licensure. TPCA obtains this information by applying quantitative standards to an identified cohort of students each year, then reviewing the performance of that cohort over time to determine how many completed their program within a reporting period. Note: Outcome rates are calculated at the institutional and program level.
