Your Dreams Are Possible With Financial Aid

Don’t let the financial stresses of school be your reason for not pursuing your dreams. At American Institute of Beauty (AIB), we believe in the importance of investing in yourself and your passions. An education can be a powerful tool for anyone who wants to create a better future for themselves.

As a beauty, barber, and massage therapy school, we understand that navigating how to fund your education can feel difficult. That’s why our Financial Aid Team is here to help educate you on the different types of financial aid that are available, how to complete a FAFSA® form, and answer any questions you may have!

To learn more about what types of Financial Aid and Assistance are available, continue reading below. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.

Types of Funding

AIB is proud to offer a variety of ways to pay for your education:

Financial Aid

We offer financial aid to those who qualify in eligible programs. When you think of financial aid, do you think of loans? You might be surprised to learn that loans aren’t the only types of aid available through the federal government. Learn more about types of aid below.

Pell Grants

A Pell Grant does not have to be paid back. This is a way of funding your education that doesn’t affect your credit. To find out if you qualify for a Pell Grant, you are required to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). If you want assistance in filling out your application, our Financial Aid Officer can assist you. To learn more about Pell Grants, visit the FAFSA® website.

Student Loans

Loans are a type of aid that will need to be paid back. The amount you receive will be determined by how much you qualify for. To start the process of finding out more about what you may be able to receive, you’ll need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). There are different types of loans available, so visit the FAFSA® website to learn more. Need help? Contact us!

Florida Prepaid

Do you have a Florida Prepaid account? You can use it at AIB! These savings accounts are not limited in their use to traditional colleges or university. You can utilize the money your parents have been saving for post-secondary education for beauty school. If you need help understanding or figuring out how to use your Florida Prepaid, just contact us!

Veterans’ Benefits

AIB has been approved for veterans’ training for education benefits. Veterans, dependents of veterans, and survivors of veterans may be eligible. Speak to one of our Admissions Reps for more information regarding veteran benefits. Visit the Veterans Affairs website to learn more about applying for benefits.
