A new federal report says two New Mexico for-profit career schools failed to prep their graduates to find jobs that would adequately pay off their student debts.
But the administrators at the Southwest Acupuncture School’s programs in Santa Fe and the Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy’s cosmetology program in Albuquerque have challenged the Department of Education’s findings. They say the classification either fails to represent their individual programs or is based on bad data.
Additionally, the Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s cinematography and film and video production, and the Pima Medical Institute’s now-defunct massage therapy and therapeutic massage programs received a “zone” rating, which is essentially a warning category.
