Excited to start your education, but worried about tuition? We’re here to help! There are several financial aid and scholarship options available to those who qualify.
What is financial aid?
Financial aid is funding provided to students and families to help pay for post-secondary education expenses.
How do I apply?
To be considered for federal and need-based financial aid, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the FAFSA make sure to add Paul Mitchell Schools code.
What types of aid can I get?
Federal student aid includes:
Grants – financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid (unless, for example, you withdraw from school and owe a refund)
Loans – borrowed money for college or career school; you must repay your loans, with interest.
Federal Student Loans
Direct Subsidized Loans are loans made to eligible undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need to help cover the costs of higher education at a college or career school.
Direct Unsubsidized Loans are loans made to eligible undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, but in this case, the student does not have to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for the loan.
Direct PLUS Loans are loans made to graduate or professional students and parents of dependent undergraduate students to help pay for education expenses not covered by other financial aid.
Private Student Loans
These loans are non federal loans, made by a lender such as a bank, credit union, state agency, or a school.
Do I have to provide my parents information on the FAFSA?
If none of the criteria listed above apply to you, you may be a dependent student and may be required to provide your parents’ financial information when completing the FAFSA.
