How to Enroll:
Enrollment, instructional and graduation policies of this school do not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, color, religion or ethnic origin. We do not recruit students already attending or enrolled at another school offering a similar program of study. The school reserves the right to refuse admission to any person who shows an inability or unwillingness to successfully complete the program and gain employment in the field of cosmetology.
STEP 1 - APPLY FOR ADMISSION:
Interview with the school's admissions representative and receive a tour.
Review the Catalog at www.nationalbc.com or request a hard copy from the admissions office.
Complete an Enrollment Application.
Provide a valid high school diploma, high school transcripts showing a graduation date, GED certificate, a parent certified diploma or transcripts, if home schooled or an academic transcript that indicates the student successfully completed at least a two-year post-secondary program. For students who completed secondary education in a foreign country, a copy of the “secondary school leaving certificate” or other similar document, translated into English and certified to be equivalent to a United States high school education. GED certificates from the state of Ohio can be requested online at www.education.ohio.gov.
Provide a photo ID with proof of age (a valid driver’s license, state issued ID, passport, etc).
Set up payment arrangements through financial aid, a monthly payment plan, or a combination of both.
Notify the school of the planned program, schedule and enrollment date.
Students meeting the above requirements will be accepted into the school's Trial Enrollment Period for their chosen program and enrollment date. Students will then schedule a time to sign their Enrollment Agreement and pay their $100.00 non-refundable application fee. A student must then successfully complete the Trial Enrollment Period and be accepted by the school as a regular student.
Students who have attended another cosmetology school and wish to transfer hours must meet all the admissions requirements stated above as well as the following:
Submit a transcript of theory and practical grades by subject from the previous school or pay a $150.00 Transfer Evaluation Fee.
Complete a Request for Transfer of Clock Hours form with our admissions representative. The school cannot enroll any transfer student until the official breakdown of hours has been received from the Ohio State Cosmetology and Barber Board.
If the student cannot provide a breakdown of grades by subject area, theory and practical evaluations must be completed prior to enrollment. There is a $150.00 fee for this evaluation. This school reserves the right to refuse acceptance of any hours of a transferring student. We do not enroll any transfer students for less than 300 hours for the cosmetology program, and 100 hours for the esthetics or advanced manicurist programs.
STEP 2 - APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students should apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA via www.fafsa.gov. The school code for National Beauty College is 011744. You will need your federal tax return to complete the FAFSA. You will also need an FSA User ID to complete the FAFSA online. Apply for your FSA User ID at fsaid.ed.gov. Dependent students will need a parent to sign the FAFSA with an FSA User ID; a parent will need to apply for his/her own FSA User ID.
FAFSA follow-up - Once your FAFSA has been processed, you will receive confirmation from the U.S. Department of Education.
Once National Beauty College receives your FAFSA information, you will be notified of any additional required documentation. If you are asked to submit additional documentation, please do so as soon as possible. Your financial aid cannot be processed without the requested documentation.
Initial offer - After all your documentation has been reviewed, you will receive your initial offer showing the types and amounts of aid available for your selected program of study.
Once you select your program and enrollment date, you will receive detailed information about your offer and disbursements. You will review and accept your final offer with a financial aid counselor prior to your trial enrollment period.
