Graduation Guidelines


Placement Assistance

Upon nearing completion of a course, our employment service assists you in finding a job. The College will generally encourage a student to start considering salons to interview prior to graduation. The College will contact salons to set up an interview for the student and/or will supply the student with a list of prospective salons. While this service is provided, it is understood that Mims cannot promise or guarantee employment to any graduate.
