The school requires that each student enrolling in the programs must:
- Provide proof of secondary or Post-secondary education (e.g a high school diploma, a GED certificate, an official transcript showing secondary school completion, a state certification of home school completion, college diploma, or college transcripts). Should an enrolling student provide a foreign high school diploma, the institution will work with the student to obtain an English translation of the document along with confirmation that the education received is equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma. This documentation must come from an outside agency. The Esthetic Institute does not accept ATB tests. However, for programs equal or longer than 600 clock hours, in the absence of a high school diploma, the school may apply the NACCAS 225 rule, whereas the student enrolls and must be in SAP at 225 hours in order to continue. Students using the NACCAS 225 rule cannot qualify for Financial Aid.
- Present a Valid Photo ID as proof of identification (see below for acceptable items):
valid state identification
b. valid driver’s license
c. valid military identification
d. valid passport
- Be at least 17 years of age or older
- Provide a Social Security number and/or proof of eligible non-citizenship status if applicable.
If the prospective student is a transfer, additional documents may be required such as Official Transcript from previous school. (See section Transfers from other Schools below). If the prospective student is a returning student all previous financial obligations must be cleared before re-enrolling.
Esthetics Institute complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990; the school facility is wheelchair accessible. Esthetics Institute does not offer a Comprehensive Transition Postsecondary Program for students with intellectual disabilities.
Regulation 34 CFR 668.16 (p) requires Title IV schools to establish policies and procedures to confirm the authenticity of high school diplomas in the event that the school or the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education has reason to question the validity of a student’s high school diploma. The school may require further documentation in the form of a certified copy of final high school transcripts for the high school in question or information from a company that evaluates foreign diplomas (in the case of a foreign diploma). Student self-certification is not considered sufficient proof of validity. In addition to checking online for further information about the high school issuing the diploma and its accreditation or lack thereof, the school may also contact the Department of Education in the state in which the diploma was issued to determine if the school listed on the diploma is on the state’s list of recognized schools. Lack of accreditation does not necessarily make a high school ineligible. The school maintains a list of possible known diploma mills for the admissions staff to check when receiving a diploma from an unknown and questionable source. It is understood that this list may not necessarily be 100% accurate and may not be all inclusive as there are hundreds of diploma mills some known and some not currently known. It is also understood that the list of schools in the FAFSA drop down box online also may not be all inclusive. The school makes every reasonable effort to verify the validity of questionable high school diplomas.
All prospective students of the Esthetic Institute are invited to visit the school and arrange for a personal tour and counseling session prior to enrollment. A catalog detailing all aspects of the school will be furnished to each student (hard copy or electronic), including schedule of tuition and fees, methods of payment, School’s Graduation, Licensure and Job Placement Rates, Licensure Requirements, Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy and more. Student will complete an Application for Admission and submit it along with a $100 non-refundable Application fee to be considered for enrollment. An Enrollment Agreement is required for each student registering for a program, and must be signed at the time of registration. The student must agree to comply with the tuition payment schedule documented on their contract. The fees paid for books, kit and supplies (when applicable, as noted in the individual program outlines) are non-refundable once issued to student, as they become the property of the student.
Acceptance of transfer hours is at the discretion of the school. The school does not recruit students already attending or admitted to another school offering similar programs of study. The Esthetic Institute does not offer a Comprehensive Transition Post secondary Program. The school complies with the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and is wheelchair accessible. Students may not be accepted for enrollment if they cannot prove credit worthiness (Please see Method and Terms of Payment below). Providing false information for the purpose of gaining admission or access to financial assistance is a violation of law and could result in criminal prosecution as well as denial of admission or termination from school.
