Students with Disabilities

If you are interested in attending Mission Beauty College but are in need of reasonable accommodations, you should schedule an appointment with the Admissions Representative. At this meeting, we will discuss the nature of the reported disability and its impact on learning. We will also discuss the process of receiving reasonable accommodations at Mission Beauty College, and the types of accommodations available.
Please bring copies of current documentation of a disability to this meeting. Documentation must be provided by a medical expert within the last three years and include:
•a diagnosis of the disability; •how the diagnosis was determined (what tests were given and the results); and •A clinical summary, which includes an assessment of how the disability will impact the individual in a college environment and what accommodations are recommended.
Upon completion of the initial meeting, a formal request for the accommodation must be submitted in writing to the school. The initial meeting, formal request, and response from the school must take place prior to the pre-enrollment process.
The Federal Student Aid Program Of the U.S. Department of Education offers qualified students grants and loans for the purpose of attending schools with qualified programs.
Mission Beauty College financial aid officers will assist you in determining if you qualify for federal student aid. In addition to financial aid, The STCA offers a no-interest payment plan to qualified students. Please allow our financial aid counselors to help you design a program that is right for you.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in the financial aid process. You use the FAFSA to apply for federal student aid, such as grants and loans. This is a free application and you should not be charged for completing it. Visit the FAFSA website at FAFSA.ed.gov to begin your application.
Financial aid applicants can receive a program cost estimate using an online calculator developed by U.S. Department Of Education Net Price Calculator.
Notice of Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
A federal or state drug conviction can disqualify a student from federal financial aid programs. Convictions apply if they were for an offense that occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving Title IV federal financial aid; convictions do not count if the offense did not occur during such a period. A conviction that was reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record does not count toward federal financial aid eligibility. Futhermore, a conviction received when the student was a juvenile does not apply, unless that student was tried as an adult.
The following table illustrates the period of ineligibility for federal financial aid programs. Note eligibility is dependent upon the nature of the conviction and number of prior offenses:
Possession of Illegal Drugs
Sale of Drugs
1 year from date of conviction
2 years from date of conviction
2 years from date of conviction
3 or more Offenses
Moreover, those students convicted of both selling and possessing illegal drugs will be subject to ineligibility for the longer period as prescribed under the circumstances.
A student regains eligibility the day after the period of ineligibility ends or when the student successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program. Additional drug convictions will make the student ineligible again for federal financial aid programs.
Students denied eligibility for an indefinite period can regain it only after successfully completing a rehabilitation program (see below). Furthermore, eligibility can be resumed if a conviction is reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record so that fewer than two convictions for the sale or three convictions for the possession of illegal drugs remain on the student’s record. In such cases, the nature and dates of the remaining convictions will determine when the student regains eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility to certify to the College that a qualified drug rehabilitation program has been completed.
For purposes of financial aid eligibility, a qualified drug rehabilitation program must include at least two unannounced drug tests and must satisfy at least one of the following requirements:
• Be qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly from a federal, state, or local government program.
• Be qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a federally or state-licensed insurance company.
• Be administered or recognized by a federal, state, or local government agency or court.
• Be administered
Additional information regarding illegal drug conviction and financial aid eligibility is available on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) website, www.fafsa.gov. Report any convictions involving illegal substances on question #23 of the FAFSA. If a student receives a drug conviction while receiving aid at Genesee Community College, the student is required to notify the Financial Aid Office immediately.
