Financial Aid

An education in the beauty industry is an investment, whether it’s in cosmetology, esthetics, or another trade. At Tricoci University, we provide a great return on your investment, but we also understand the costs of an education can be tough to manage alongside all your other life expenses. Financial aid options can vary by type and school location, and working with our financial aid professionals is the easiest and quickest way to find out precisely how much financial aid you qualify for.

We offer a wide variety of payment options.

At Tricoci University, our students typically use a combination of payment options to create a plan that works for their financial circumstances and other financial aid as they qualify Read on to learn some of the financial aid options we use to help make beauty school more affordable so that you can focus on achieving your dreams instead of the financial burden a career in cosmetology or another field in the beauty industry might bring.

Financial Aid

To apply for Direct Federal Stafford loans you need to complete the Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note. Please visit Student loans are only available for those who qualify.

We allow students to pay their tuition or required “gap” funding in equal installments spread over their enrollment period. These payments have no interest charges.

Where federal student aid is not available or not sufficient to cover total need, we work with students (and their families, as needed) to help them apply for private student loans with financial institutions such as Sallie Mae (the nation’s largest provider of student loans). To apply please visit

Use our Net Price Calculator to submit your information in an online calculator (developed by the U.S. Department of Education), which then uses historical financial aid information to help estimate the net price you might pay for our full-time Cosmetology program at each campus.

Financial aid options may vary by state or location. For questions regarding any of our options or financial aid assistance, please contact us online or at 888.395.1013.
