|Why can't I just register for this program?
This program is highly competitive and requires a selection process for registration. By submitting your pre-registration form, for each registration date, you will be put on a list that will enable MTECH to electronically select students who will be approved to register. You will be notificed via email, on the indicated registration date, of your status. If you do not have all required steps completed you will lose your ability to register. If you do not pay your tuition (if applicable) and fees, by the date indicated, you will lose your ability to register. A list of alternate students, who will be allowed to register if someone forfeits their spot will be chosen and students will be notified in order of selection. REMEMBER-you must fill out the pre-registration selection form for EVERY registration date to be eligible for the selection process. Prior submissions will give you an advantage in selection. However, if you skip a registration, your prior registration attempts will return to ZERO. All pre-registration forms must be submitted by 5:00 pm the Friday before the registration date. No submissions will be accepted after that date and time.
|How long does this Program take me?
Depending on the schedule you choose (Day or Night) you can expect anywhere from 12-18 months to complete the Cosmetology Program, 9-12 months to complete the Hair Design Program and 3-4 months to complete the Nail Technician Program. This program is a Dedicated Entry/Open Exit program which means you may start with one group but at about 900 hours, you will begin to move at your own pace. This means you may move faster or slower depending on the time you are engaged in the Program
|I am a Junior in HS-Can I take this program?
Because this program is highly competitive, we do not allow Juniors to enroll. You may attempt to be selected for enrollment as soon as you complete your junior year.
|Which location should I choose?
This all depends on you? Normally, the choice is determined by where you reside. However, there are some prospective student who don't care where they attend and will attend any location that they are selected for. Please know that you will not be able to change locations once you are selected and registered for a specific location.
|How can I pay for this program?
The Cosmetology and Hair Design program are Federal Financial Aid eligible. The Nail Technician is not Federal financial aid eligible. If you are an Adult, you need to follow the steps found on the Financial Aid webpage to determine if you are eligible for funding prior to filling out your pre-registration selection form. If you are in High School and have a fee waiver, please make sure you have arranged to have that communiated to MTECH once you have been selected and prior to the deadline of the specific registration period you are submitting your pre-registration selection form for. If you have any other third party sponsors, they must be ready to also submit payment prior to the deadline of the specific registration period you are submitting your pre-registration selection form for. If you do not have any of the above, if you are selected you have until the Friday after the registration date to complete your registration and submit all payment for tuition (if applicable) and program fees or you will be removed from the selection and an alternate will be put in your place.
