Federal Pell Grant

A Pell Grant is money you don’t have to pay back. It is a grant you can get from the federal government for post-high school education based on your financial need.

Federal Direct Student Loan Program

EQ School of Hair Design has been selected by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in this governmental student loan program. This is a loan program where you must pay back the money that you borrow. The amount you borrow depends on need and the amount of help you get from other sources. On subsidized loans, the federal government pays the interest on the loan as long as you are in school. Six months after you graduate, you will begin a payment program.

Federal PLUS Loan

Your parents can get this loan if you are not eligible for other types of financial aid or you haven’t gotten enough from other sources to pay for school. If you are certified to be a dependent student, your parents can apply for a PLUS Loan.
