An education is an investment.  Tricoci University and the beauty industry will provide you a great return on your investment, but we understand that the investment can be tough to manage given all your other expenses.  Working with our Financial Aid professionals, we can make the payment process as easy as possible, and help you qualify for as much financial assistance as possible.
