Deciding how to pay for school
The biggest concern for most potential students is "How can I pay for school?" Did you know Apex Academy accepts Financial Aid, V.A. Benefits, Scholarships, Tuition Financing and Self Pay Payments? Let us talk with you about your Financial Options and what may work best for you!
What's financial aid?
Financial Aid also known as Aid, Federal Aid, or Federal Assistance is money available to help assist in School costs. Apex primarily deals with two types of Aid; Loans and Grants. A Loan is something the student will be required to pay back post Graduation while a Grant is money that the student will not have to pay back. Students must be willing to complete the FAFSA to determine if they are eligible for Financial Aid.
What is the FAFSA?
If you are interested in applying for Financial Aid, you must fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Different types of aid (private scholarships, state grants, etc.) have different rules, called eligibility criteria, to determine who gets the aid. There is no age limit when it comes to people who can apply for Aid. Federal Aid is Available for the Cosmetology program only. For additional tips to Filling out the FAFSA Click Tips to Complete FAFSA. When you fill out the FAFSA be sure to keep your login information in a safe place. To ensure Apex can give you an estimate of Aid based off of your FAFSA, enter our School Code 042661 when promoted.

Apex Academy does not offer In-House scholarships at this time. However, Apex Academy will accept scholarships from any outside agency.
Apex Academy is approved by the State Approving Agency of Ohio to accept funding for both the Cosmetology and Advanced Manicurist Programs. A Veteran, spouse or child of a Veteran are eligible to take advantage of these benefits. It is the student’s responsibility to apply for the benefits online at www.gibill.va.gov or by completing the paper form VA 22-1990. Once applied, Apex Academy will need a copy of student’s Certificate of Eligibility (COE) and a copy of the DD-214 discharge paperwork.
Tuition Financing Company
Apex Academy has contracted with a Tuition Financing Company called TFC Credit Corporation. All paperwork will be completed through Apex Academy for payments that will go through TFC. Payments for TFC will be set up with an automatic withdrawal from a checking / savings account. Payment plans will be based on individual needs. Financing will be available with a low interest rate. All students are approved and a co-signer is necessary.
Apex Academy accepts payment in the form of cash, personal check, card, money order, cashiers or bank check. Students have the option to pay in full prior to start date or to pay in payments.
