Financial Aid

Financial Aid at the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics Financial aid is available for eligible applicants and students of the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics to meet all or part of the costs connected with attending the Institute. Both federal and state grants are available to those who qualify, as well as student loans. Beginning in January 2010, the School will participate exclusively in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan program in which borrowers will obtain Stafford and Parent PLUS loan funds directly from the US Department of Education rather than from private lenders. We believe that the Direct Loan program will offer our students and parents a more stable, streamlined, and predictable borrowing experience.

In order to determine an applicant’s or student’s potential aid, a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed. You may do so directly online at Our federal school code is 015768. Given that the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics accepts students year-round, there is no deadline for filing; however all appropriate forms must be submitted in a timely manner to coincide with class start dates.

Should prospective students desire additional information, a financial aid representative will be available to answer your questions on the date of your scheduled tour.
