What are my first steps to enroll in a program?

We are EXCITED to have you at Southeastern Esthetics Institute! The FIRST STEP is to schedule a Facility Tour to view our 150,000 square foot campus in Richland County, South Carolina! From there, our amazing Admissions Team will educate you on our active PROGRAMS and assist you towards your dream career!

P.S. Make sure to have a $100 Application Fee ready to go, as well as a copy of your High School Diploma, Transcript, or GED – along with two forms of Government Issued ID. Let’s do this together!

How do I submit tax information if I’m selected for Verification from the U.S. Department of Education?

If you are selected for verification, we are required to verify the accuracy of the tax data submitted, therefore you will need to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool or submit an IRS Tax Transcript or a signed Federal Tax Return (1040 Form). We recommend that you update your FAFSA by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to electronically transfer your tax information into your FAFSA. Check out this video that walks you through the process, or view these step-by-step instructions on how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool and how to obtain an IRS Tax Transcript.

How does that FAFSA work?

The U.S. Department of Education uses your FAFSA to determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
The EFC is calculated by the Department of Education so that your college can determine how much financial aid assistance you’re eligible for. The lower your EFC, the more need-based aid you may be eligible to receive.
Note: Your EFC is not the amount of money your family will have to pay for college nor is it the amount of federal student aid you will receive.
Your EFC determines the type and amount of loans, subsidized or unsubsidized, that are available to you. The difference between these two types of loans is when interest begins to accrue. For subsidized loans, interest does not begin to accrue until six months after graduation, but for unsubsidized loans, interest accrues from the date the loan is disbursed.

IRS Data Retrieval Tool

You can use the IRS Data Retrieval Option to link your tax returns to your FAFSA electronically. We strongly encourage you to use this option to streamline and expedite the processing of your financial aid application. Watch this video tutorial about how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool or view the step-by-step instructions on how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool and how to obtain an IRS Tax Transcript.

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows students and parents to access the IRS tax return information needed to complete the FAFSA, and transfer the data directly into their FAFSA form from the IRS website. If you are eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, we highly recommend using it for several reasons:

  1. It’s the easiest way to provide your tax data.
  2. It’s the best way of ensuring that your FAFSA has accurate tax information.
  3. You won’t need to provide a copy of your or your parents’ tax returns to your college.

Prerequisites for using the IRS Data Retrieval Option

  • You must have filed a federal tax return with the IRS.
  • You must have a valid social security number.
  • You must have a FSA ID. Create one at the Federal Student Aid FSA ID Website.

You can’t use the IRS Data Retrieval Option if:

  • Your marital status changes after December 31
  • You and your spouse filed separate tax returns
  • You are a parent of a dependent student who filed a separate return
  • You filed an amended return
  • You filed a foreign tax return
What do I wear on the first day of class?

We LOVE providing you with the uniforms you need to SUCCESS within your Student Kit for our LICENSING programs! (If you are attending our certificate courses only, you will provide your own scrubs!) Simply wear professional attire (no jeans) and close-toed shoes on your first day of class – and you will receive your scrubs during your first-day ORIENTATION! Have fun!

What FAFSA year do I need to complete?
  • Enrollment between July 2023 – March 2024 – complete the 23/24 FAFSA
  • Enrollment between April 2024 – June 2024 – complete the 23/24 and 24/25 FAFSA
  • Enrollment between July 2024 – March 2025 – complete the 24/25 FAFSA
What happens if I am selected for Verification by the U.S. DOE?

If you are selected for Verification, you will be notified via email. We will indicate the documentation you need to provide. You can bring your documents to the school or send them by email or mail. Easy!

What is needed to complete the FAFSA?
  • A High School Diploma or General Educational Development certificate (GED)
  • Your Social Security Number or Alien Registration Number, if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Your federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of money earned
  • Bank statements and records of investments (if applicable)
  • Records of untaxed income (if applicable)
  • A Federal Student Aid FSA ID (may be obtained during FAFSA application process or at the Federal Student Aid Website)
