Financial Aid is not available for nail education in Virginia. Check into hair schools that offer financial aid to get a cosmetology license. Some social service offices might have grant funds to help people trying to get vocational training for a job. Most students scared to ask for help, may not realize that most family members would love to help loved ones getting a career skill. Some companies offer personal loans but avoid interest rates over 20% to avoid financial hardships later.


Kit items are needed within the 30 days of first starting. Supplies stay at home with the student (exception to a acrylic kolinsky brush). Kit includes a table clamp hand, mani, pedi, tip, wrap, acrylic, starter drill and sanitation products. Pro kit adds a few gel polish items with starter LED lamp, pro add ons and dip supply. State supply adds an exam hand and odorless supply. Students can also purchase all itmes in the kit elsewhere. A list is provided after down payment at the welcome page. 


Licensing is obtained when students pass their state exams. Students are released and prepared to take their state exams after they pass testing in the school on online study work and complete class requirements for hands on services. The course must be paid to be released to take the state exams administered in state secured facilities.  Most students on a payment plan will have a 1-2 month delay before they can register for their licensing exams until the course is paid in full.
