The Application Process
Welcome to JT’s Cuts Academy Financial Aid Online Process. The following steps are meant to guide you through the application process. We want to help anyway we can to get you started.
Complete the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov.
The federal school code for JT’s Cuts Academy is 043036. We highly recommend using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to complete your FAFSA. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows students and parents to access the IRS tax return information needed to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and transfer the data directly into their FAFSA from the IRS Web site. Once the FAFSA is processed by the federal government, you should receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). You should review the SAR to determine if the JT’s Cuts Academy Financial Aid Office will require additional documents. The SAR should also be reviewed to ensure the accuracy of the data submitted. You should contact the JT’s Cuts Academy Financial Aid Office immediately if there are any inaccuracies.
If you are applying for federal student loans you must complete an entrance counseling session by visiting https://studentaid.gov/entrance-counseling/. The entrance counseling session is meant to help you understand your obligations as a borrower and provide you with valuable information regarding the loan process.
Master Promissory Note
If you are applying for federal student loans you must complete a loan agreement called a master promissory note (MPN) by visiting https://studentaid.gov/mpn/.
Federal Direct Parent Plus Loan
Plus Credit Authorization Form
PLUS loans are federal loans parents of dependent undergraduate students can use to help pay education expenses. To receive a Direct PLUS loan, a child of the parent borrowers must complete the FAFSA. A credit check will be performed during the application process. If you are eligible for a Direct PLUS Loan, you will be required to sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN), agreeing to the terms of the loan. If a parent borrower is unable to secure a PLUS loan, the undergraduate dependent student may be eligible for additional unsubsidized loans to help pay for his or her education.

Hear From Our Graduates…
“My journey began with JT’s Cuts Academy when I decided I wanted a career change in 2018. My mother was a barber and I have family members in the beauty industry so for me being a barber was destined. When I initially enrolled at JT’s Cuts Academy they were welcoming, polite and professional. It seemed as if we knew each other for years. The teachers are very knowledgeable and the staff made sure that all of the students had what we needed to be successful not only for class and book work, but we were prepared to be great at being barber stylists. JT’s was not only a school for me but it was more like a family. I am proud and honored to say that I graduated February 2019 from the Academy. I left confident and positive about my bright future as a barber stylist.
Thank you JT’s Cuts Academy for everything!”
“12 months ago, I was working a dead end. I didn’t have much of a vision, no plans or any real life goals. One day, I walked into JT’s Cuts Academy and had questions about an ad I saw that read, “Become a Barber in 10 months.” I walked in a bit skeptical, again not having a vision, but wanting answers. I was soon greeted by Ms. Gloria, who was there to assist me with all my concerns. I left that day feeling positive, motivated and for the first time with a vision! Long story short, here I am 12 months later a certified Barber Stylist with my own chair in a Barbershop tackling my plans and checking off my goals one day at a time.
Thank you JT’s Cuts Academy for teaching me everything I know and giving me back my vision! I’m a Barber for Life!”
“It all started with a Haircut before New Years eve at the Jt cuts barber shop while I was getting a hair cut I saw this sign inside the shop (Jt cuts Academy) and I asked Jt some questions about the School and he explained everything ,I went home and I told my wife about it and than she said we’ll go for it and I was like there is now way I can do the school with 2 jobs. So the next day we went just to see the schedule what was like and then boom !!!!there is me signing up for the school. The year went fast very quick wasn’t easy but I made it with the jobs school and 2 kids..but I really wanna thank Ms. Gloria, Mr. JT, Ms. Michelle for the guidance.
