These website disclosures are being mandated by ED pursuant to Section 18004(e) of the CARES Act and Section 4(c) of the Certification and Agreement for the emergency student grants portion of an institution’s HEERF allocation.

Within 30 days after the date when an institution received its HEERF allocation for emergency student grants, the institution must provide the following information on its primary website in an easily accessible format and location, and must update the information every 45 days thereafter:

Each student is eligible and will be paid a portion based on where they fall in the number of hours remaining in the Cosmetology Class.

ALABAMA SCHOOL OF NAIL TECHNOLOGY & COSMETOLOGY
NOTICE OF ARBITRATION AGREEMENT & CLASS ACTION WAIVER

As a condition for enrollment in The Alabama School of Nail Technology & Cosmetology (“ASNTC”), students enter into an enrollment agreement which provides that all disputes between a student and ASNTC will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION.

Students thus GIVE UP THEIR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend their rights under their enrollment agreement (EXCEPT for matters that may be taken to SMALL CLAIMS COURT).

* A student’s rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury.
* Students are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT.
* Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.

As a further condition for enrollment, students also agree that any dispute or claim that they may bring will be brought solely in the student’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, representative proceeding, mass action, or consolidated action.

Note withstanding the student’s agreement to resolve any disputes with ASNTC by binding arbitration:

  • ASNTC does not require a Federal student loan borrower to participate in arbitration or any internal dispute resolution process offered by the institution prior to filing a borrower defense to repayment application with the U.S. Department of Education pursuant to 34 CFR § 685.206(e);
  • ASNTC does not, in any way, require students to limit, relinquish, or waive their ability to pursue filing a borrower defense claim, pursuant to 34 CFR § 685.206(e) at any time; and
  • Any arbitration required by the pre-dispute arbitration agreement with ASNTC tolls the limitations period for filing a borrower defense to repayment application pursuant to 34 CFR § 685.206(e)(6)(ii).

Binding arbitration with ASNTC will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), under its Consumer Rules.

You may begin the arbitration process by getting together the following documents:

ALABAMA SCHOOL OF NAIL TECHNOLOGY & COSMETOLOGY NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION & CAMPUS SEXUAL HARASSMENT POLICIES & GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES

I. Policy

It is the policy of Alabama School of Nail Technology & Cosmetology (the “School”) to maintain an environment for students, faculty, administrators, staff, and visitors that is free of all forms of discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment. The School has enacted the Campus Sexual Harassment Policies & Procedures (the “Policy”) to reflect and maintain its institutional values, to provide for fair and equitable procedures for determining when this Policy has been violated, and to provide recourse for individuals and the community in response to violations of this Policy.

The Policy can be found at the School’s website at www.alabamaschoolofnailtechnology.com or obtained in person from the Title IX Coordinator (see below).

The School does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational, extracurricular, or other programs or in the context of employment. Sex discrimination is prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, a federal law that provides:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

This Policy prohibits all forms of sex discrimination, harassment, and misconduct, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The requirement not to discriminate in the School’s education programs or activities extends to admission. This Policy also prohibits retaliation against a person who has made a report or complaint, testified, assisted, or participated or refused to participate in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under this Policy. Inquiries about the application of Title IX may be referred to the School’s Title IX coordinator, the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, or both.

The School also prohibits other forms of discrimination and harassment, including discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, or age in its programs and activities. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies, including Title IX:

Teri McLemore, Title IX Coordinator
202 Commerce Street
Jackson, AL 36545
Phone: (251) 246-9992
Email: terimclemore@aol.com

Inquiries or complaints concerning the School’s compliance with Title IX or other federal civil rights laws may be referred to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.

Office for Civil Rights, Atlanta Office

61 Forsyth Street S.W., Suite 19T10
Atlanta, GA 30303-8927
Telephone: (404) 974-9406
Facsimile: (404) 974-9471
Email: OCR.Atlanta@ed.gov

Alabama School of Nail Technology & Cosmetology desires to create and sustain an anti-discriminatory environment and will not tolerate discrimination of any kind. The School will achieve this through education, orientation, and training for all students, staff, and faculty for the purpose of creating awareness of both the issues surrounding discrimination as well as accountability, sensitivity training, and anti-discrimination training in their classrooms, at least once while the student is in school.

II. Sexual Harassment Grievance Procedure

Reports of sexual harassment should be made to the School’s Title IX Coordinator or Director of Financial Aid. The School will respond promptly when it has actual knowledge of sexual harassment in its education programs or activities. The Title IX Coordinator will promptly contact the complainant to discuss the availability of supportive measures, consider the complainant’s wishes with respect to supportive measures, inform the complainant of the availability of supportive measures with or without the filing of a formal complaint, and explain to the complainant the process for filing a formal complaint.

The School will investigate all formal complaints of sexual harassment. A formal complaint must be in writing filed by a complainant or signed by the Title IX Coordinator alleging sexual harassment against a respondent and requesting that the School investigate the allegation of sexual harassment. A formal complaint form may be obtained from the Title IX Coordinator, although no particular form is required to submit a formal complaint so long as the complaint is in writing, signed by a complainant, alleges sexual harassment against a respondent, and requests an investigation. The School’s Title IX Coordinator oversees the School’s investigation, response to, and resolution of all reports of prohibited sexual harassment, and of related retaliation, involving students, faculty, and staff.

If all parties voluntarily agree to participate in an informal resolution that does not involve a full investigation and adjudication after receiving notice of a formal complaint and if the School determines that the particular formal complaint is appropriate for such a process, the School will facilitate an informal resolution to assist the parties in reaching a voluntary resolution. The School retains the discretion to determine which cases are appropriate for voluntary resolution.

The School will convene a hearing panel following the end of an investigation. The hearing panel determines whether the respondent is responsible or not responsible for a violation of the Policy. If the respondent is determined to be responsible, the matter proceeds to the sanctions stage. The Policy provides that the parties have the right to appeal the hearing panel’s determination under certain circumstances.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT: I acknowledge receiving notice of the School’s Campus Sexual Harassment Policies & Grievance Procedures, including how to report or file a complaint of sex discrimination, how to report or file a formal complaint of sexual harassment, and how the School will respond.
