Financial Aid Eligibility

General Eligibility Requirements​

Eligibility for most financial aid programs is based on demonstrated financial need of the student and/or the student's family, and on the number of clock hours for which the student is enrolled.  Federal financial aid is available for the cosmetology and esthetics programs.

For Federal financial aid programs, a student must be a citizen, nation or permanent resident of the United States.  Certain persons in the process of becoming citizens or permanent residents may also be eligible.
