Tuition Planning Process

Before you reach out to NIMA to begin your application, please review our tuition planning requirements. There are multiple ways to fund your NIMA education.

● Federal Financial Aid (Aesthetic licensure programs only)
● Private Loans
● Government Assistance Programs
● In-House Financing*

*NIMA will provide in-house financing for students who have exhausted all federal and private funding options. All applicants must complete FAFSA and apply to 2 private lending institutions prior to being considered for in-house financing. Interest will apply and will vary based on current market rates.

Step 1: Payment In Full

If you are ready to pay your tuition in full, and will not require federal or private loans, you do not need to complete steps 2-3. Your next step is to complete our online application.

Once you have submitted your application, a NIMA Enrollment Specialist will contact you to set up an enrollment meeting.  At your enrollment meeting we will:

  • Collect tuition
  • Finalize your enrollment date
  • Finalize your attendance schedule
  • Sign your enrollment agreement
Step 2: Federal Loans and Pell Grants (Aesthetics Licensure Programs Only)

All students that are not ready to pay tuition in full are required to complete the free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process prior to completing this application. All students will qualify for some form of federal tuition assistance. NIMA requires that students accept all available federal funds prior to qualifying for in-house financing. 

There are 3 types of federal tuition assistance:

● Grants – need based, no repayment required
● Subsidized – need based, repayment required, does not accrue interest while in school
● Unsubsidized – all students qualify for unsubsidized loans, repayment required, interest is accrued from start of loan

MASTER PROMISSORY NOTE
After submitting your FAFSA, you will immediately see your “award amount” for Pell Grants, Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans. If these amounts cover your full tuition, complete your application.

Once you have submitted your application, a NIMA Enrollment Specialist will contact you to set up an enrollment meeting where we will:

  • Collect a $1,000 down payment
  • Schedule payment for your full tuition (due at least 30 days prior to your start date)
  • Finalize your enrollment date
  • Finalize your attendance schedule
  • Sign your enrollment agreement

If additional funds are required to pay your tuition, please proceed to Step 3 prior to submitting your application.

Step 3: Private Loans

If federal grants and loans do not cover your tuition, and you are not able to self-pay the remaining balance, NIMA requires that you apply for loans through at least 2 private institutions prior to qualifying for in-house financing. Students may use funds from any private institution, however we recommend you begin by working with our preferred vendors listed below.

MACU

For students that are unable to secure funds through private institutions, NIMA offers in-house financing options. Interest will apply and will vary based on current market rates. Once you have applied to at least 2 institutions and have obtained a copy of your loan approval or denial you may submit your application and upload your documents to the portal.

Once you have submitted your application, a NIMA Enrollment Specialist will contact you to set up an enrollment meeting where we will:

  • Collect a $1,000 down payment
  • Schedule payment in full or set up in-house financing
  • Finalize your enrollment date
  • Finalize your attendance schedule
  • Sign your enrollment agreement
Step 4: Additional Options

State government assistance programs may be available to qualified individuals. Eligibility for these programs is not determined by NIMA.

NIMA accepts the following assistance funding in our Utah campus only, with the exception of Vocational Rehab available in both locations.  If you qualify for any of these programs, you must provide documentation to NIMA in order to process your funds. If you have confirmed that you qualify for these programs, and they will cover your full tuition, you do not need to complete steps 2 or 3.
