Financial Aid

The Financial Aid process does not have to be daunting.  French Academy of Cosmetology is so pleased to participate in this federal tuition aid program.  Our Financial Aid Director will offer each student direction and counseling through every step of the process.

Financial Aid is available only to those who qualify.

 

STEP ONE:  APPLY FOR YOUR PIN

(Personal Identification Number)

If you have never filled out a FAFSA you will need to apply for a PIN.  Log on to fafsa.ed.gov and select “PIN site” along the top tool bar.  Set up your PIN number.  You will be using this PIN number several times throughout the financial aid process.  Please keep it safe and memorize it!

STEP TWO: FILLING OUT THE FAFSA

(Free application for federal student aid)

Log on to fafsa.ed.gov to fill out your application.  This step usually takes 15-30 minutes.  You will be asked to enter schools that you are considering for enrollment.  Please add French Academy of Cosmetology (code: 041411).  You will be asked to link to the IRS electronically to transfer your tax information.  You will use your PIN number to transfer to this site.

After you fill out the FAFSA, you will electronically sign using your PIN number.

 

STEP THREE: FINANCIAL AID REPORT SENT TO FRENCH ACADEMY OF COSMETOLOGY

Now the process is in our hands!  Three to five business days after you have completed your FAFSA, French Academy will receive a report in the Financial Aid Office.  Our director will call you (or email you) to see how we can assist you in your schooling decision.  Your Student Financial Aid Report gives our French Academy Financial Aid Director all the information needed to develop an estimated financial plan with you.
