Admission FAQs

Do You Offer Financial Aid?

Yes! Each of our five campuses is accredited, meaning we offer financial aid to those who qualify. For more information on what type of financial aid you qualify for, talk to one of our financial aid advisors. We’re always happy to help!

When Do Classes Start?

LJIC has classes starting every four weeks at each campus. However, not all programs start each month, and a minimum class size may be required for the program to start. Orientation is held the week prior to the class start date.

Do You Offer Job Placement?

While we can’t guarantee employment, our relationships with our industry partners and local salons and spas have helped us place our graduates in salons and spas across the United States. 

How Much Is Your Tuition?

Tuition varies depending on which program you choose. For more information on our programs and their cost, give us a call and a member of our admissions team can help!

What Can I Expect On My Beauty School Tour?

On your tour, you can expect to have your questions answered, see our campus, and learn more about our programs. Our goal with our tours is to get to know you, learn your goals, and introduce ourselves!

See What Our Students Have To Say

I chose LJIC because it gave me more options to learn different areas rather than just hair only. You learn nails, the spa side of Cosmetology, and everything else.
