Empire Beauty Schools are accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS) and approved for use of Federal Government Loan and Grant Programs. Students seeking financial aid assistance should consider the various programs available to qualified applicants.
- Federal Pell Grant: The government has supplied money for post secondary education, which does not have to be repaid. Available to qualified students. Grants are based on financial need.
- William D. Ford Subsidized Direct Student Loan Program: This loan can be obtained with the school's help. If you qualify, the Federal Government pays the interest on these loans while the student is in school. You are not obligated to start payment until six months after you leave school. This loan may be borrowed for tuition and fees. The Department of Education determines the repayment schedule.
- William D. Ford Unsubsidized Direct Loan: This loan can also be obtained with the school's help. Eligibility for Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans must first be determined. You are not obligated to start payment until six months after leaving school as your principal can be deferred during the period of enrollment, but the student is responsible for the interest that accrues while in school. This loan may be borrowed for tuition and fees. The Department of Education determines the repayment schedule.
- Parent Loan for Undergraduate Student (P.L.U.S.): This loan is taken out in the parent(s) name to be used for the educational expenses of the student. Approval for this loan is credit-based and is used for dependent students only. Payment begins sixty days after the last disbursement of the loan. Like all Direct Loans, they can be obtained with the school's help or through a local financial institution.
Interest free, in-house tuition payment plans are also available to help make your training affordable.
