Paying for school doesn't mean you have to have the money up front. There are many ways you can pay for your education.
Federal Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. This aid comes in a few forms:
- Pell Grants are free grants that are based on family size and income, and do not have to be paid back. A full Pell may entitle you an estimated $9600 in grant money, paid in 4 payments over 2 or 3 Financial Aid years, for the entire 1500 Cosmetology course. A 600 clock hour course may entitle you to up to $3877.
- Subsidized Loans are loans from the government, and have to be paid back. The government pays the interest on these loans while you are in school. A cosmetology student may borrow up to $6500 total for the entire program. A 600 clock hour student may borrow up to $2300.
- Unsubsidized Loans are also loans from the government, and have to be paid back. The government does not pay the interest while you are in school. An cosmetology student classified as Independent may borrow up to $10,000 for the entire program; a Dependent student may borrow up to $3300.
