Financial Aid

 

Sometimes it’s necessary to get a little help when it comes to funding your future. We want every student to be able to thrive both during school and after graduation. That’s why offering financial aid is so important to us.

*For a more detailed explanation of Financial Aid, student loans and grant dollars, please contact our Financial Aid Office at 678-990-0762 ext. 227. Financial Aid is available only to those students that qualify.

Determine Financial Need

The basis of determining a student’s financial needs begins with an analysis of the financial status of the student’s and/or the parent’s income. This analysis is accomplished by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) distributed by the U.S. Department of Education. Learn more on the fafsa.ed.gov website or hotline 1.800.4.FED-AID. When entering your personal information on the FAFSA website, please include our school code: 041509, then we can go over your financial aid options with you.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Have a financial need
  • Have a High School Diploma or GED
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen
  • Have a valid Social Security Number
  • Register with Selective Service

 

About FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at www.FAFSA.ed.gov, or in paper form from high school counselors and at public libraries. The amount of the award depends upon the determination of the student’s eligibility, his or her enrollment status, cost of attendance, and payment schedule issued by the US Department of Education, Office of Student Financial Assistance.

Scholarships

    • June Scholarship

This is available for students who begin during the June class start. The scholarship amount is $2500, though amount varies based on the month it is awarded.

    • Previous Education Scholarship

When a student has had previous education and training in an accredited high school
cosmetology program, with proof of a high school transcript of cosmetology hours of at

    • High School Scholarship (Maxwell/Loganville)

There are certain periods and criteria when scholarships may apply to tuition costs. Students must fill out an application and if they pay cash, the scholarships can apply. In addition, students with proof of a high school transcript of cosmetology hours of at least 350 hair and hair theory hours will receive a scholarship for prior education in high school. These hours cannot be transferred to this school. Unearned scholarships are forfeited when withdrawal occurs.
