What would you tell someone who was considering beginning their cosmetology education at The Temple?

I graduated from The Temple – Frederick location – in 2006. I see a big difference comparing The Temple to other cosmetology schools that I’ve either visited as a potential student or ones that I’ve now visited as a presenter.

I would almost compare The Temple to a four-year university where some of the other schools are more along the lines of being a trade school. Trade schools are very focused on “checking the boxes” and doing the things needed to get a cosmetology license. But I really felt that at The Temple I was exposed to all of the options – kind of like general studies – like platform work, photo work, charity, etc. There was just so much more than just the state board curriculum and it gave me the opportunity to put my hand in a lot of buckets to see what I enjoyed. It was more comprehensive.

What wisdom would you pass along to current Future Professionals? 

My biggest advice is don’t be too good for anything. Learn all that you can because you’ve just hit the tip of the ice burg. When you get out of school you feel very knowledgeable as compared to when you started but in the grand scheme of the industry, there are so many people out there who have knowledge to offer you. It is important to keep your mind open to learning those things.

Also keep in mind that nothing is free. You might get to go to work with an amazing colorist but in exchange you might need to scrub the toilet there every night. But the knowledge that you receive from that colorist is free and might have taken that person 20 years to learn. And that is priceless.

Is there one thing you wished graduates knew coming out of cosmetology school?

What you put into your career is directly reflected into your paycheck.

People that wait for clients to magically show up and get haircuts/color are the people who don’t have what they want and they’re also the ones always complaining about money. The people who really live it understand that sometimes you have to work full weekends and nights even if you don’t want to.

You have to pay your dues in this industry and be available for clients. If you put in a couple of good years of solid availability then you get to the point where people like you and request you because you put the work in. That is the point when you get to create your own schedule. You just have to grind when you are new at this.

Just strive to do your best. If you present your best self every day, life will lay itself out for you.

Using The FAFSA To Fund Your Cosmetology Education At Temple Annapolis

by Ingrid Nelson

So, you need help paying for your education at The Temple Annapolis?  The FAFSA isn’t as scary and confusing as you might think.  Follow the steps below for what to do and what NOT to do when filling out your FAFSA for your cosmetology education.

This video introduces you to what this process looks like: 


 

What to Do:

  • Get an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov
  • Dependent Student? Parent needs an FSA ID too
  • Visit fsaid.ed.gov
  • Sign in with Student’s FSA ID
  • Choose the 2017/2018 FAFSA
  • Add our school code: 041518
  • Use 2015 tax information
  • Sign with Student’s (and Parent’s, if necessary) FSA ID
  • Results will arrive at The Temple in 3-5 business days

What NOT to Do:

  • Losing or Forgetting your FSA ID – write it down, take a picture, save in your phone!
  • Losing or Forgetting your FSA ID!
  • Forgetting to sign the FAFSA – all results will be blank
  • Using the wrong tax information – 2017/2018 FAFSA uses 2015 taxes
  • We are The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School – not Temple University

If you have a tour of our campus in the future, fill out your FAFSA now!  We can review your results with a member of our Financial Aid Team after your tour.  Just remember it takes 3-5 business days for your results to arrive.

We look forward to meeting you and helping make your cosmetology dreams come true!

How Do I Repay My Student Loans?

Answering these three questions will put you on the path to repay your student loan balance.  More information can be found at studentloans.gov.

1) Who is my loan servicer?

A loan servicer is a company that collects payments, responds to customer service inquiries, and performs other administrative tasks associated with maintaining a federal student loan on behalf of a lender. If you’re unsure of who your federal student loan servicer is, you can look it up in My Federal Student Aid.  Temple graduates can also contact the Financial Aid office at The Temple.

2) What is my repayment plan?

There are several repayment plans available, providing the flexibility you need. Here are some things you should know:

  • You’ll be asked to choose a plan. If you don’t choose one, you will be placed on the Standard Repayment Plan, which will have your loans paid off in 10 years.
  • You can switch to a different plan at any time to suit your needs and goals.
  • Your monthly payment can be based on how much you make. Learn about our income-driven repayment plans.

3) What if I can’t make my payments?

Paying off a student loan is a great way to establish or improve your credit rating.  If you’re having trouble making payments, don’t ignore your loans! There are several options that can help keep your loans in good standing, even if your finances are tight.

  • Change your Payment Due Date
  • Change your Repayment Plan
  • Consolidate your Loans

If the options above don’t work for you and you simply can’t make any payments right now, you might be eligible to postpone your payments through a deferment or forbearance. However, depending on the type of loan you have, interest may still accrue (accumulate) on your loan during the time you’re not making payments.

Adulting, Temple Style

So you’ve taken the plunge and decided to join The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School for your cosmetology education. Congratulations!

Get ready for a real-deal introduction into your journey, your investment, and your experience as soon as you walk through the doors on your first day.  This. Is. Not. High School. Here are our best tips for success:

Be on time

Arrive early (yes, early) and be prepared to learn and jump in. After all, this is a time-driven industry (i.e. your time/guest’s time = your earning potential/their happiness) and the clock is ticking once you arrive at school. Roll call begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. or 5:00 p.m. depending on whether you’re enrolled in our day or night school program.

Be here

Just like a job, you’re expected to be present. If you are unable for whatever reason, (sick, car trouble, etc.) call in and leave a message. No call, no show means you lose your time and your attendance percentage suffers.

Be in communication

We will communicate with you a lot, especially if you are receiving Federal Financial Aid (student loans, grants, etc.). We are required by law to notify you once your FAFSA results are in or your loans are dispersed. Check your email. Return our phone calls.

Be responsible

Speaking of FAFSA and the Student Loan process, know your FSA ID (username & password) because you will need to know this throughout your time with us and beyond. It’s not your parent’s responsibility. The student loans (if you have them) are in your name, not theirs. In fact, once you turn 18, we are not able to share information about you or your loans with your parents without special FERPA permission.*

Be teachable

Find a mentor! One of our fabulous Learning Leaders or experienced Future Professionals are always eager and willing to help. Our culture rewards visionaries… be one!

Be involved

Take advantage of extra-curricular activities! We have many that will set you apart and put you in a position to be lucky. Student run programs, community events and invitations to be a part of something bigger than yourself are always available.

Be conscientious

Look and act the part. Your appearance and demeanor are directly related to your success! Act as if you’re already in the industry and be that person you would want to do your hair, make up or nails.
