Financial aid is available f or those who qualify. Each student is unique; they have different goals and lifestyles, and that may extend into the financials of beauty school. The Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy financial aid staff is here to help you with what you need. Below are some resources to get you started. Calling or booking an appointment online is the easiest way to get your questions answered.

What is FAFSA?

Before applying for our financial aid options, you first have to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your FAFSA application combined with your tax return information will decide whether or not you’re qualified for a number of financial aid options like Federal Grant money, Parent PLUS Loans, and more. FAFSA is an important step in the financial aid process and it’s why you should do this early on in the application process for our beauty school. If you have any questions about this process, our team would be happy to meet with you and give you any advice!

After completing this, there are a few federal aid options available for you to look into.


Federal grants are a part of the financial aid package and may not have to be repaid. The amount you can receive will be dependent on financial need.


Federal loans are monies borrowed to help pay for school and must be repaid. You can apply for both subsidized and unsubsidized loans.

Parent PLUS Loans

Parent PLUS loans is made for parents who have qualifying credit to borrow from the government to help pay for their dependent child’s education tuition. This type of loan will be in the student and parent’s name.

My time at Artistic Nails and Beauty Academy has been quite a learning experience. I've met some nice people who were always willing to help me out when I had any questions. I never felt out of place or out of the loop with anything. From the Instructors down to the students, I always felt I had a friend. My experience at ANBA has been one to remember.

- Ruben – Massage Therapy

Artistic Nails & Beauty is on of my biggest life changing moments. The staff is so eager to be supportive and very helpful. I so love the productiveness of the receptionist Tamara, she makes my day very well. I love my school and really recommend this to anyone!

- Kmart – Cosmetology

My time at ANAB has been a great learning experience and has been a great new start for me. All staff is very helpful, full of ideas and will help you with as much as they can. To me ANBA is a fun environment. On each holiday, they do something creative to celebrate, food, dress up or a competitive competition. It's a great school to come to if you're ready for a change on life and a kick start on being creative in your career.

- Ashley – Full Specialist

Artistic Nails and Beauty has given me the opportunity to achieve my dreams while attending school in a fun, eventful environment. Instructors and staff are hand on and very informative. ANAB Academy has overall helped me perfect my skills and become more educated in my field of study. I now feel confident to utilize what I have learned in the working field.
