How To Choose The Right Beauty School

Posted on: February 4th, 2018

As a future student, deciding what beauty school is the right choice for you takes time and effort. In your research, visit all schools that interest you. During your search, you may come across the term “Nationally Accredited“. This accreditation process is completely voluntary and currently not a requirement to operate a school in the state Illinois.

 

What to look for when choosing the right beauty school.

  • The curriculum. Does the school offer a curriculum that will not only teach the skills needed for your career but prepare you for life outside of school?
  • Nationally accredited. As stated above, it is a choice for a school to have this accreditation. When a school is Nationally Accredited, it means: 1. The US Dept of Education may recognize the school for participation into Title IV financial aid programs. 2. The school has successfully met national standards of educational performance for its curriculum’s. 3. A financial audit has been completed to ensure that the institution is financially sound to operate and students tuition is not at risk.
  • Tools and Aid. Does the school offer the right tools for you to be successful? Do they offer financial aid or any discount programs? These are all questions to research and find answers for.
  • Job placement success. What is the beauty school’s graduation, licensure and placement rate? These statistics should be revealed for potential students to review. These same statistics at USTA are posted, and reported to NACCAS.
