Step 5: Prior to the first disbursement of loans, you will need to complete the Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling. These forms may be completed at the Federal Student Aid website.

Total Look School of Cosmetology and Massage Therapy participates in the U.S. Department of Education's electronic application process. Your FAFSA generates an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR), which is sent to the school. You will receive by mail a SAR Information Acknowledgment form. Carefully review this form. If any errors are found, contact the Financial Aid Office.

Step 6: Your financial aid file is complete when the Financial Aid Office has all of the necessary information and forms. Your file is then reviewed, and your eligibility is determined. If you are eligible for financial aid, you will receive an Award Letter listing your financial aid award. If you are not eligible, you will receive a letter informing you of this. Your financial aid file must be completed within three weeks from the date Total Look School of Cosmetology and Massage Therapy receives your ISIR.
