Enrolling in Cosmetology School? Let Our Checklist Help You Out!

Are you seriously considering cosmetology school at Elevate Salon Institution (ESI), Cleveland? Good for you! We think this is a great gateway to future opportunities! Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s talk about the enrollment process. There are a few key steps to follow when enrolling in our cosmetology program. We know that starting your education can feel overwhelming, so we’ve broken the steps down for you in a simple checklist!

ESI Cleveland enrollment checklist for students.

1. Preparation and Research

It is required to have a high school diploma or high school equivalency to obtain a cosmetology license. When you apply to our program, you’ll need to send us proof of your diploma or GED, along with your high school transcripts. Once this step is taken care of, start researching the beauty industry and learning more about our financial aid options, application process, and cosmetology program curriculum! While we highly encourage that you do research your own, you can always feel free to contact us with any questions. We want to make sure you are well-informed when you make the decision to enroll.

2. Schedule a Tour of Our School

You wouldn’t make the big decision to buy a brand new car without visiting the dealership to check it out first, right? Choosing to attend cosmetology school is another big decision. Scheduling a tour of our school is the best way to get a solid picture of what our program is like and what we can offer you as a student. During a tour you can meet staff and students, ask your most pressing questions about the program, and see the tools and facilities you would be using on a daily basis in cosmetology school. A tour shouldn’t feel scary or overwhelming. At ESI Cleveland, we’re a friendly bunch of beauty lovers who are always excited to welcome new students to our school. At the end of the day, a tour is a friendly conversation and a great chance for us to get to know you!

3. Get Help With Financial Aid

As a potential cosmetology student, tuition and other financial concerns can be a significant stressor. That’s why we are thrilled to offer financial aid to those who qualify! ESI Cleveland believes every student who wants to pursue an education in beauty should be able to achieve that goal without being hindered by financial stress. If you are interested in our program and want to learn more about financial aid, set up an appointment with our Financial Aid Administrators. We’re here to help qualifying students navigate financial aid and develop a solid plan for the future.

4. Apply to the Program

When you’ve done the prep work and research, attended a tour, and gotten advice on financial aid, it’s time to apply to the cosmetology program! To get started on the process, visit our application page. Next, contact us to make sure you have the current enrollment application and to ensure that your high school diploma, transcripts, and post-high school transcripts have been received. After this, fill out the online form. Once you’ve done that, someone will contact you for next steps.

5. Plan Out Your Schedule

One of the best parts about cosmetology school is the scheduling flexibility it can offer. ESI Cleveland offers both full-time and part-time cosmetology programs. That means if you’ve got a family to take care of or you have a full-time/part-time job, cosmetology education can fit into your busy schedule. The program is 1,500 hours, which means it can be completed in as little as 10 months with a full-time schedule, or 21 months with a part-time schedule. When you consider how long other degrees and certifications can take to complete, cosmetology can be a great option if you’re looking to kickstart a career!
