Barber School Financing

Tuition & Financing Options


Barber students may be qualified to receive grants and financial aid from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Department of Education.  To expedite your enrollment, you can submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid online or by mail. Click here for instructions. Our Financial Aid officers can help you explore your financing options, and to fill out applications and paperwork.


You can register for the barbering exam online (Tennessee or Mississippi) and prepare for the licensing exam with information from State Board of Barbering & Cosmetology’s website. Because it takes a few weeks to receive your test date, you should register early prior to completing your required hours of barber training. The instructors and school staff at Gould’s Academy are happy to assist in completing your application.
