Consumer Information


Paul Mitchell The School Madison is accredited by the COE and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Both agencies require that we provide you with important information regarding our school's outcome rates in the areas of completion, placement, and licensure. Paul Mitchell The School Madison is a main campus. If you have any questions regarding our outcome rates, please don't hesitate to contact our admissions team for assistance.

On-time completion is defined by the U.S. Department of Education as anyone who graduates within the normal completion time. When a student completes their graduation requirements, including all theory and practical assignments, and the required number of clock hours without missing any time, that student is considered to have graduated on-time. If a student misses any time for any reason, such as family responsibilities, day care issues, and other life events, they are not considered an on-time graduate. The school's on-time graduation rate is listed on each course paged under Gainful Employment. Please note that our graduation rates that are provided in the school catalog are based on how many students started the program and how many completed within the reporting period.

In order to pay for the cost of education, many of our students apply for student loans through the U.S. Department of Education or through private institutions. Student loans go into repayment after a student leaves school. The median loan debt refers to the amount of money the typical student owes once they have graduated from their program of study. Private Education Loan debt is loans obtained from a bank or credit union. Institutional financing is money owed directly to the school upon completion of the program.
