Financial Assistance

The L Makeup Institute understands that financing an education can be one of the most complex and important issues that applicants face. For this reason, the L Makeup Institute’s Financial Aid Department can provide information and assistance to all applicants and families concerning a variety of finance options for their education including federal grants and federal loans for their direct and indirect cost of education. Available resources include federal grants and student loans administered through the U.S. Department of Education, VA Benefits and/or private institutional private financing. If an applicant obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, he or she will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund.
