We want to see our graduates succeed

Financial Aid Is Available For Those Who Qualify:

When choosing to attend school, financial planning is one of the most important steps that need consideration on your part. If you know you are going to need financial assistance in order to attend school, please discuss your options with our Admissions/Financial Aid Director during our personal interview. Sumter Beauty College is approved by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in a variety of programs on both the Federal and State Levels:

- Pell Grants

- SEOG Grants

- VA

- Vocational Rehabilitation

- Scholarship Programs

- MYCAA Program (for spouses of military personnel)

Financial aid programs do not usually cover the entire cost of the program. You are going to owe some money yourself. A variety of monthly payment plans can be arranged as well … with NO finance charges if paid during your enrollment. Our motto is: Where there is a will, there is a way! We will do our very best to help you make the plans for yourself so you are able to afford the education you want. 

Are there steps you can take to apply for financial aid yourself?
