Options and Terms Of Payments For Tuition

Currently, Tanya’s Beauty School does not participate in federal financial aid programs. For your convenience, however, the school offers in-house, no-interest loans to help students pay for their tuition and expenses. For example:

TABLE***

Total deposit is due before the class start of any program. If the student wants to move seamlessly through each of their programs, the total deposit due is the combined deposit. If students prefer to pay the deposits as they go through their programs, they have the option to pay prior to the start date of each of their additional programs.

Deposits and payments:
Deposits and monthly payments will be 100% applied to kits and books. Once the costs of books and kits have been paid in full, 70% of payments will go to supplies and lab fee, 30% will be applied to tuition. Once the supplies and lab fee have been paid in full,100% of payments will go to tuition. The school offers a 10% discount for tuition to students who complete their program within the time frame agreed upon in their enrollment contract.

Course extension cost:
Any student who does not finish the course of studies by the contracted graduation date will be charged an hourly rate of $9.00 an hour for the additional time they require, as stated in the Extended Fees contract. The maximum amount of time given to students to complete their course of study may not exceed 150% of the standard length of the course.

Policy for return of books, supplies, or other materials:
Students have the option of purchasing books or materials on their own rather than from the school. Students who obtain required materials from an outside source will have the appropriate deduction in total fees. If students decide to sell or return their books and supplies back to school, the refund will not exceed 50% of the original price.

Fee waiver policy:
Currently, the school does not have a form or policy for fee waiver requests. However, if a student experiences severe economic hardship, immediate family death, or a serious medical situation, a fee waiver may be granted.
