Beauty School Enrollment Checklist
Enrolling in beauty school is exciting and fun. And while you will work hard during your beauty education, we want to help make the process of the not-so-fun stuff as smooth as possible. That’s why we want to help you avoid any of the confusion around scholarships, financial aid, and the application process itself. Here’s a list of the different steps you can expect to take when looking into a beauty school:
- Reach out to the school by filling out a form on their website or calling them directly.
- Take a tour of the school.
- Fill out financial aid and application paperwork.
- Begin your beauty school program!
The process may vary school by school, but most cosmetology schools follow this pattern so that you can get to know the school, experience a little of it for yourself, and get the help you need when applying for financial aid and filling out paperwork.
Why Touring The School is Important
Would you buy a car that you have never driven before? Of course not! And the same approach should be applied to beauty schools. Most cosmetology and esthetics schools offer tours specifically so you can get an idea of what the school is like, ask any questions that may be on your mind, as well as provide any other information you might need before the next step in the process. Common questions people ask on their tours include:
- How many students are in each class?
- How does this school prepare me for my career after beauty school?
- What financial aid or scholarship opportunities are available?
- What can I expect to learn in this program?
- What do I need to do to be ready for this program?
The tour is an exciting opportunity to ask any and all questions you might have on your mind. You could have the opportunity to see the student kits, see what the student salon is like, and even meet some of the staff or instructors that would have a hand in helping you learn beauty!
Paying For School
Students are frequently anxious about figuring out how to pay for their beauty school program, so that’s something we’re ready to help you with! There’s no need to try to figure it out on your own. Our admissions team has been working with students for a long time to make their dreams happen, so you’re in good hands.
Making beauty school happen is all about finding the payment options that work best for you. Of course you can pay for your program in cash, but we’ve found that most students need a few more options. Our programs are accredited, which means our students can apply for federal financial aid if they are eligible. Other options include grants, scholarships, student loans, college savings plans, and more. Our staff can help you evaluate all of your options to find the best plan for your situation!
Enrollment & Orientation
Once you have a financing plan in place, that’s when you can move ahead with enrollment and getting ready for orientation! The enrollment paperwork is a relatively simple and straightforward contract that holds both the school and the students to standards that can allow everyone to be successful. From there, your journey begins!
Things To Look Forward To
The beauty school journey is full of exciting milestones along the way, and enrollment is just the first one. During your first several weeks at beauty school, you’ll spend most of your time in the classroom coming to grips with the beauty basics. During this time is when you’ll receive the kit for your selected program, which is one of the most exciting days at beauty school! The next milestone is when you start working on the salon or spa floor. It can be intimidating, but it’s where our students start to find themselves. The most exciting milestone comes at the end when you graduate. It’s where your beauty school journey comes to an end and the journey of a lifetime as a beauty professional begins!
