  • No, they don't. Your MIL is right. But there is an organization called American Cosmetologists.....try Googling that and see what they offer. Pell Grants are usually for 4 year college degrees Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts.. BS, or BA degrees...Academic curriculum.

  • You can always call the school and ask but I know it didn't use to cover it. Things could have changed over the years

  • They don't and at some schools they don't offer all the classes they are off campus and you would have to get a loan or pay out of pocket for most of it.
