Can a FAFSA be used to Apply to Cosmetology School

The field of cosmetology is always growing and there will always be a demand for career opportunities as beauty professionals. If you have a passion for beauty, creativity, and helping others feel confident and beautiful, Cosmetology is the career for you! 

Deciding to take the leap towards your dream career is exciting, but how will you be paying for school? Is FAFSA an option?

Beauty schools that are accredited, like Aveda Institute accept Federal Financial Aid. If you are eligible, you could receive financial aid grants and loans when you fill out and apply for a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, otherwise known as a FAFSA. 

To qualify for cosmetology licensure, you must attend a licensed school and complete the state’s minimum required training hours and then take and pass the state's cosmetology board exams. Applying for types of financial aid is a great way to start planning for your future. 

Contact a representative at Aveda Institute today to learn how to kick start your future in the beauty industry.
