Our schools are all designated Institutions of Higher Education by the United States Department of Educations and, as such, are classified “Eligible Institutions” for participation in Federal Financial Aid programs for Advanced Cosmetology, Cosmetology, Hair Designer and Advanced Esthetics (at The Spa School only).
For those who qualify, we offer:
Pell Grants are a great way to help pay for your beauty school education. These are typically awarded to those with financial need but don’t normally have to be paid back like student loans.
Depending on your financial situation, there are multiple types of loans that could help you pay for your education. Here are some of the loan options that might be right for you.
The Parent PLUS loan can be given to parents of dependent undergraduate students to help pay for their student’s education. Parents must have qualifying credit to be approved for this type of loan. To find out more about PLUS loans and start filling out the application, click here.
If you’ve never applied for or received a direct loan before, the federal government requires you to complete entrance counseling. This is so you can understand more about the financial aid process and what you would be agreeing to if you decided to take out a loan. This can be completed in one session and should only take you about 20-30 minutes.
Every student who has taken out a loan needs to take exit counseling to help them prepare to repay the amount borrowed. Students will be required to take this if they leave school or have graduated. Like entrance counseling, this can be completed in one 20-30 minute session.
*Master Promissory Note (MPNs)
Depending on your financial situation, it’s possible that you can get back some of the money from your education’s tuition or your loan payment through tax benefits. Read more about how this could help you pay for your education.

"Very Thorough & a Great Value. I’ve only been once for a hair cut & a wash, but am already planning my spa side visit. Treated myself, my daughter & my mother & the ladies we each had were great. They were meticulous & ensured the cuts were just right. Also loved that we had the opportunity to sit next to each other."
"Miss Galiffo’s my fav <3"
"Got a perm today!! Absolutely love it and of course I am going back for my hair care."
"Megan gave me a wonderful facial and my pedicure with Deirdre was the best! They were very personable and professional. Clearly, the staff at The Spa School has trained them well! And the prices were a fraction of what you would pay at any other spa!"
