Financial Aid and Scholarships
TYPES OF FINANCIAL AID
Grants and scholarships are often called “gift aid” because they are free money-financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree. Apply online at https://fafsa.ed.gov
FAFSA SUBSIDIZED AND UNSUBSIDIZED LOANS
Subsidized and unsubsidized loans are federal student loans for eligible students to help cover the cost of higher education at a four-year college or university, community college, or trade, career, or technical school. The U.S. Department of Education offers eligible students at participating schools Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans. (Some people refer to those loans as Stafford Loans or Direct Stafford Loans.) Apply online at https://fafsa.ed.gov
We’re so happy to support our Students! That’s why we offer a number of scholarships at Taylor Andrews. While grants are often need-based, scholarships are usually merit-based. Apply Today!
Additional “outside” scholarships can be found at http://beautychangeslives.org/scholarships/
It is preferred that a student either uses FAFSA, a bank/credit union loan or pays tuition in full. It’s required that a student apply for outside funding before Taylor Andrews will consider an in house payment plan. If an in house payment plan is approved after a student has been denied from a bank (denial letter required) a $3,000 down payment to cover the equipment, books and supplies will be due BEFORE classes begin. Students tuition must be paid in full by graduation and before paperwork for licensure is released.
BANKS, CREDIT UNIONS & PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS
There are some banks, credit unions and financial institutions that may offer loans to help finance your education or continuing education classes. Mountain America Credit Union is one local option but you may choose to work with which ever institution best suits you.
