Scholarships and Financial Aid

Trend Setters has several options to assist with the cost of tuition. Interested students are encouraged to contact the school’s Financial Aid Director for more information.

Trend Setters School is pleased to offer scholarships on a rotating basis. All students enrolling with the September 11th Cosmetology class are eligible for a one-time $4,900 scholarship award to reduce the total cost of tuition to $3,600. All students enrolling with the August 29th Barber class are eligible for a $3,175 full-coverage scholarship award to reduce the total cost of tuition and supplies to $3,000. Space is limited for all classes.

Balloon Payment

For students who prefer to minimize student loan debt, “balloon payment” financing options are available to lower the cost of the program to $300 per month. The full remainder of the tuition balance will be due on completion of the program for either plan. Students will not be permitted to sit for state board license exams until all tuition due to Trend Setters has been fully paid. For students who qualify, a private loan may be available to cover the balloon payment balance through First State Community Bank in Cape Girardeau, Missouri (disclosure: FSCB is affiliated with Trend Setters School of Cosmetology, Inc).

Some additional forms of financial assistance are available. Please contact the school for details.
