School Enrollment Process & Requirements

We try to make school enrollment as painless as possible. However, it is important that you meet with an admissions representative to tour the facility, learn about the program you are considering, and get a feel for the school. Career training is a big commitment and we want to ensure you make the right choice for you. It’s your future after all. That said, here are the steps to enrollment:

Enrollment Step 1Meet with a Federico Beauty Institute Admissions Representative. Call 916.418.7223 or complete the form on this page. You’ll go over program details, get a tour of the school, meet some other students and faculty, and get all your questions answered.

Enrollment Step 2Pass entrance exam. This is a requirement of enrollment and is a timed 50 question aptitude test. There is no way to study for it and the test consists of basic vocabulary and basic math (only need 15/50 to PASS!)

Enrollment Step 3Bring in all required paperwork.

Enrollment Step 4Meet with financial aid officer. After passing your entrance exam and submitting all required documents, you will then be scheduled an appointment to meet with the financial advisor to discuss financial aid options or to set up a monthly payment plan for school.

Enrollment Step 5Pay deposit. Initial deposit of $150 to register for class (not covered by financial aid, $105 non-refundable/transferable).

Enrollment Step 6You will be notified within 24 hours (except weekends) of paying the deposit of your enrollment status. If you have further questions or go to FAQ page.


Enrollment Step 7Attend first day of school. Congrats on starting your first day of the rest of your beauty career!
