Financial Aid at Aveda Institute Maryland

For information about Financial Assistance, our counselors are here to help students create a financial plan to suit their needs. We understand that money can be a concern for our students. Because of this, we have created a financial team that is ready to answer questions, help plan, and provide advice. Federal Financial aid is available to students who qualify. You can start filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) to see what you may qualify for.

Here are a few resources for students to read when looking for federal aid or any other type of assistance to help start their career. Please see each individual program for tuition information.

If you feel more comfortable inquiring about a certain program and cost, please do not hesitate to schedule an information session. During that session, you can get a sense of the program, and realistically discuss your financial options/position. 


FAFSA®: Our school code is 016012
