HOW DO I ENROLL IN THE PAYMENT PLAN?
Click the blue payment plan button to make your down payment in the Enroll page. You will be instantly redirected to create your online study account and start study (when ready) immediately after making a down payment. The first monthly payment is due to attend the first class day.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCIAL AID TO GO TO NAIL SCHOOL?
No. Virginia does not offer financial aid to go to Nail School. You can get aid to go to Hair School (cosmetology/barbering) but we do not teach hair here. We specialize in Nail Training only. If you have military aid check into schools at high military populations like the NOVA or Norfolk/Virginia Beach areas. We do not take military aid benefits. We are state licensed/approved for those with approved aid from VA Social Services (with available funds for job training).
ARE YOU GOING TO CHECK MY CREDIT FOR APPROVAL?
No. Anyone that makes a down payment will be approved for this in-house financing option. Anyone making a down payment is 100% approved for the payment plan. We do not report any payments to the credit bureaus.
DO YOU HAVE A SMALLER DOWN PAYMENT OPTION?
No. We have an initial cost to cover to enroll students into the online study. Students are usually ready to take their state exams within 5-6 months of starting the course. If students wait too long to take their exams (after starting a course here) they will be taking a new updated harder exam and could fail. We can not release students to take their exams until the course is paid for so our monthlly payments are 3-5 months based on your down payment amount. Students need to take their exams within 8 months of starting a course here to be ready to pass the most current exam to get their license. Our course study is updated every 6 months to prepare students to get their license by passing the newest exam. We care about getting our students actually licensed not just taking their money and handing a certificate to them!
Students have the option to make payments with multiple cards or get help from family/friends by building up their down payment amount in our payment page or at the school by appointment. When their chosen minimum down payment is made they can start their course study within a few hours to make monthly payments later. We also offer a discount for those making a down payment with cash at the school by appointment since we would not be paying the credit card fees.
WHEN CAN I ENROLL WITH THE PAYMENT PLAN?
Students can enroll anytime 24/7. Just make the down payment to be automatically enrolled. The special offer is valid during the advertised time. As soon as you pay you will be redirected to start your online study when ready. Online study is self paced to study when you want anytime 24/7. Our course cost varies each month to keep our enrollment low each year to focus on each student.
CAN I BUILD UP A DOWN PAYMENT OVER TIME?
Students that want to build up a down payment with multiple payments can do so at the payment page by clicking the credit card logo picture. When the down payment is build up for the month you are enrolling you can start your online study. Down payments range from $750-1,000 based on enrollment during the year. It will never be more than $1,000. Down payments should not take longer than 3 months to pay. Course costs here can change based on the content for new exams within the 6-8 months of starting the course study. We are SERIOUS about getting students here licensed, not just handing them a certificate.
WHEN ARE PAYMENTS DUE IF I ENROLL TODAY?
We do not keep card/bank information on file. Students make their payment each month online or at the school. The minimum monthly payment is due by 11:59pm on the first of each month. The first payment is 30-50 days from the day on enrollment depending on when the down payment is made, check the "enroll" page for the due date when enrolling this month. Payments can be made earlier as desired. Students can pay more as desired to decrease the next month's minimum payment due. Students are free to make multiple payments during the month to reach the minimum monthly payment by the first. Students on payment plans can not attend their first class day until they have made their first monthly payment.
HOW DO I PAY?
CAN I GET A KIT ON THE PAYMENT PLAN?
Kits are optional and not included in the course cost. If students want a kit then the full cost is added with the down payment for purchase. We do not have payment plans for our kits. Students can get supplies on their own since items are not specific. Students need sanitation, mani & pedi supplies after finishing about 10 hours of online study first. A recommended list is provided in the online study. They will need Acrylic supplies after attending the first class day (after 50 hrs of online study is done). Kits stay home with the student. Students only bring an acrylic brush on acrylic training days.
DO YOU HAVE LONGER PAYMENT PLANS?
No. Students need to take the state exam to get their license as soon as possible after finishing their training here. The state updates it's exams regularly. A course taken today won't let you pass an updted state exam to get a license after a year from starting a nail course. Students should be taking their exams within 8 months of starting our course (to be ready for the current exam). Most students pay their course off early when they finish early to be released to take the exams right away to get their license. We are not using a lender to keep our course cost low.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE IN THE PAYMENT PLAN THAN PAYING IN FULL?
Students on payment plans can not attend the class days until their monthly payments have been made. The payment plan will cost more than the pay in full from added installment payment fees depending on which down payment you made. Students on payment plans that finish the course early will not have their paperwork released to take the state exams until the course is paid in full. Students on payment plans can quit anytime without owing future monthly payments but previously paid costs are not refunded. Signing up for the payment plan allows students to pay the down payment to try the course (no refund) and if they don't want to finish the course they can quit and not owe the future monthly payments. For students trying to finish fast the payment plan will delay their completion to get licensed until the course is paid for.
WHAT IS THE LATE FEE?
Students on payment plans that do not pay their monthly payment by 11:59pm on the first of each month have a late fee applied to their balance. On the 2nd (if the minimum is not paid when due) there will be a $35 late fee applied. If the minimum due is still not paid by the 15th of the month then on the 16th another $35 late fee is applied. Late fees will apply to the next month's payment to increase the minimum due for the next month. Early communication is important to get help when there are financial issues.
DO YOU KEEP MY CARD INFO ON FILE TO AUTOPAY?
No. You have to go to the MAKE A PAYMENT page to pay your payment online or pay at the school.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE THIS COURSE TO GET A NAIL LICENSE?
To get a nail license (required to sell nail services in Virginia) a state approved course must be completed at a state licensed school to sit for the state exam to get licensed. We have a state licensed and approved nail course. Also instead of paying to go to nail school, a one year PAID at least a minimum wage per hour apprenticeship can be completed in a DOLI approved licensed registered salon with an added passed vocational theory course to sit for the state exams to get a nail license.
CAN I QUIT THE COURSE?
Students can quit the course anytime with all future monthly payments not required to be paid and future payments due will
not be collected through judgements. There is no refund of payments already made. Notification is considerate (when a student decides to quit) to help the school know when
to file away documents for archive (to accept other students for open space to enroll) and save the information in case there is a re-enrollment later. Payment plan is a option to enroll into the
course with the ability to drop out within 30 days and not owe any future payments but all previous payments made are not refunded.
All paid costs made to this school are not refunded.
Students with medical or personal issues can request a pause in their course. Students are suppose to finish the course within 6 months of paying in full or making a down payment to be ready for the most current exam (they are updated regularly). Pause times are only given during the first 120 days from the day they paid in full or made a down payment. Students can get a maximum of 60 days to pause their course and extend their finish time up to 8 months from the day they paid in full or made a down payment. A request must be made by email or in person with an approval by our board to allow this. Long pauses are not recommended because the study changes every 3-6 months here to prepare students for upcoming updated licensing exams. Early communication is the key in getting accomodations!
