What does accredited mean?
If you’re considering more than one beauty school, be sure to ask each one whether they’re an accredited beauty school. Tennessee Academy of Cosmetology is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences. Accreditation is important because it helps determine if an institution meets or exceeds minimum standards of quality and provides a basis for determining eligibility for federal student assistance. Students must attend an accredited institution to apply for federal grants or loans.
