Students selected by CPS (Central Processing System) for the process of verification are  frequently required to submit additional information and/or parent’s financial & household information to the Financial Aid Office. The verification procedures will be conducted as follows: 

  1. When selected by CPS for the process of verification, the student must submit all required documentation to the Financial Aid Office within 14 days from the date the student is notified that the additional documentation is needed for this process

  2. If the student does not provide all of the required documentation within the 14 days time frame, the student  will be  required  to make  other  payment  arrangements  until  the  documentation   is received and the student’s eligibility for federal student aid has been established. 

  3. The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to make exceptions to the policy stated above on a case by case basis for extenuating circumstances. 

  4. The Financial Aid Office will notify the student of any changes to their financial aid award resulting from corrections made due to the verification process. An adjustment will be made to the student’s financial aid award as required by federal regulations and an addendum to the existing award letter or a new award letter will be issued. 



The US Department of Education has established new regulations to prevent fraud and abuse in the Federal Pell Grant Program by identifying students with unusual enrollment histories. Some students who have an unusual enrollment history (UEH) have legitimate reasons for their enrollment at multiple institutions. However, such an enrollment history requires our office to review your file to determine future federal financial aid eligibility. If selected by the Department of Education students will have to provide requested official academic transcripts for the previous (4) four award years and they must be in original sealed envelopes and must be received before you will be approved for financial aid.  

If the student did earn academic credit at all of the schools previously attended for a relevant award year, no further action is required unless Hogan Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics has reason to believe that the student has had a practice of enrolling just long enough to receive credit balances before withdrawing.  

When academic credit is not earned at a previously attended school, and, if applicable, at Hogan Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics, the institute must obtain documentation from the student explaining why the student failed to earn academic credit. Hogan Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics must determine whether the documentation provided supports the reasons described by the student and that the student did not enroll only to receive credit balance funds. Hogan Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics will, to the maximum extent possible, obtain third party documentation to support the student’s claim.   



Students are able to appeal the financial aid denial by submitting a letter explaining the unusual enrollment history; and documentation to support the explanation provided in the appeal letter. This documentation will be reviewed by Hogan Institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics and we will notify you with the decision within 14 business days. 



The specific pattern the Department of Education uses to select students includes those students who have received a Federal Pell Grant at multiple institutions during the past 4 award years prior to the current award year. Once the Department of Education indicates that a student has an unusual enrollment history, the financial aid office must then take action and review the academic history by requiring the student to provide official/unofficial transcript prior to determining federal financial aid eligibility for that student.  



Hogan institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics educates students and/or parents in all options of financial aid available to those who qualify. And financial aid is available to all those that apply and qualify. We understand that all student’s/family’s needs are unique. We are committed to the student’s educational success, a part of which includes securing the proper funding. The information from the FAFSA, provided by the student and/or parent, in conjunction with state and federal regulations determines eligibility for available programs. Many parents borrow money to help cover educational costs and living expenses for their daughter/son. Hogan institute of Cosmetology and Esthetics encourages parents of eligible dependent students to apply for the Federal Parent Plus Loan. 



Federal Pell Grant (Need Based Aid) 

Pell Grants provide a foundation of financial assistance that may be supplemental by other resources and doesn’t have to be repaid after graduation. Pell Grants are determined after the financial status of  a student is fully reviewed. Based on a student’s financial circumstances, a specific amount of money is disbursed annually toward the student’s education through the Pell Grant. How much you can expect to receive from a Pell Grant is solely based on your financial situation and other criteria.
