Financial Aid at International College of Cosmetology is intended to assist students with educational expenses. Financial Aid Funds are awarded primarily on the basis of financial need* and are coordinated to supplement parental support, student employment earnings, savings and assistance from other sources.
This financial need* is what determines the amount of aid. Every student, every family and every financial aid package are different. The Federal Financial Aid Programs available to International College of Cosmetology students include Pell Grants and FSEOG Grants. Our Financial Aid Department will assist every student that needs help with a customized and hands-on approach.
* Financial Need – Federal Student Aid is awarded on the basis of financial need. Financial need is the difference between your cost of education at International College of Cosmetology and an amount (determined by the government) that you and your family are expected to contribute towards your education. A standard formula used for all applicants determines this amount, which is called the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The information you report on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid Application (www.fafsa.ed.gov) is used to calculate your contribution. The amount remaining after subtraction the expected contribution from your cost of education is considered your financial need*.
