Joining the beauty industry starts with affording cosmetology school. That’s where we come in.
Our central financial aid center is staffed with knowledgeable representatives ready to guide you through the financial aid process.
Wondering how you’ll afford school? We’re here to help. Our team of counselors focuses on financial aid every day. You’ve got questions. They’ve got answers.
Each Regency Beauty Institute campus is accredited1 by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). That means we can offer federal financial aid to those that qualify.
Once you enroll at Regency, you’ll be partnered with an Admissions Representative, who will advise you as you get started on your financial aid application. You will complete and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA). Follow the checklist included in your student visit kit.
We’ll use the expected family contribution that was calculated on your FAFSA application to determine how much aid you can expect through loans and grants.
Once we know your status, we’ll create a tuition payment plan that’s personalized for you.2
