SHNI does not participate in financial aid through the government. We are taking every aspect to keep our student’s debt free upon graduation. Also, our students tend to be quite serious about their education as they are having to find financial means and methods to achieve their dream of becoming a successful salon professional. No one should fail to apply to SHNI on the basis of financial need.
We have researched several options below for you.
  • In House Financing
    We offer students zero interest in-house payment program. You might want to consider monthly no-interest payments through SweetHead Naturals Institute, instead of taking out a student loan. With a monthly no-interest payment plan, you make an agreement with the school that you’ll pay for your schooling over a specific period of time. For example, this may allow you to pay for your schooling while you’re in school, giving you the opportunity to work part time and go to school part time, using the money to pay for living expenses and your college education. At SweetHead Naturals Institute, monthly no-interest payments may be a part of affordability for many students. It’s a great way to pay off your tuition completely interest-free, but it often requires you to pay tuition back more quickly than you would with a loan, resulting in higher monthly fees over a shorter period of time
