RULE §117.67Massage School Student Progress Requirements

(a) Appropriate standards must be implemented to ascertain the progress of the students enrolled. Each massage school shall have a progress evaluation system of a type and nature to reflect whether the student is making satisfactory progress to the point of being able to complete all subjects within the allotted time provided in the pre-enrollment information.

(b) Massage schools must submit to the department an electronic record of each student's successfully completed clock hours at least one time per month in a manner and format prescribed by the department. The department may require massage schools to identify the location where hours were completed or if hours were completed through distance learning. A massage school's initial submission of clock hours shall include all hours successfully completed at the school. Upon department approval, a massage school may submit data required under this subsection in an alternate manner and format as determined by the department, if the massage school demonstrates that the requirements of this subsection would cause a substantial hardship to the school.

(c) Except for a documented leave of absence, a massage school shall electronically submit a student's withdrawal or termination to the department within ten (10) calendar days after the withdrawal or termination. Except for a documented leave of absence, a school shall terminate a student who does not attend a massage school for thirty (30) school days.

(d) Upon a student's completion of the massage therapy educational program, the school shall notify the department that the student has successfully completed the required number of hours and is eligible to take the appropriate examination.

(e) Upon notification from the massage school, the department shall make the student eligible to take the appropriate examination.
