Full Version: Paying for school...
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am a week away from finishing the Nail Tech program in Ohio. Since the program is only 300 hours, it is ineligible for federal loans or grants (which I knew going into the program). However, a loved one has fallen severely ill and I am left without a way to pay for school.

Does anyone have any ideas or sources that I could use? I have tried One Stop here, but I am ineligible for that because I have already started the Nail Tech program.

Any and all feedback would be SO helpful!!!
don't get it. Your a week away from completion and you still owe the money? Tuition is usually collected in full before the class starts.

Can you work for the school somehow to pay off your debt?
If you only have one more week I can't imagine you owe much. Could you do some manicures for friends/coworkers for $10 each? My school required all payments finish 2 weeks before the program ended.
I didn't attend beauty school for the education; I did it so I could become licensed and legally charge for performing services. I'd encourage you to find another way without breaking the law. Offer your friends and family some incentive to support you now that can be repaid when you get your license.
I get it.... My school was a 6 week course, and I had 12 weeks to pay. Just ask your school if they can put you on a payment plan, most will as they want the $. HTH
My school had a payment plan. I had to do 600 hours so I did part of it with student loans and part of it on a payment plan. Good luck.

I need to practice what I learn in school which I do on friends, family, coworkers. I've spent about $200 on products to practice with along with with my weekly tuition and babysitting (which are equal to my tuition) so I guess the incentive is a manicure and the donation is the amount they give me. I don't actually charge anything but sometimes you have to use your talent to continue through school.
