Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Please beware if you attend the Aveda Institute of Florida. If something happens and you have to quit you will be charged big dollars. For instance if you are required to attend 1244 hours for your certificate and you complete 30% of your schooling and then you quit. You will be charged 70% of the tuition. So for 330 hours the cost is over $8,000. That is a lot of money. So if you or your kids think about attending read the fine print. It is hard to get information from them and you will be stuck holding the bill!

Dropping out of the Aveda Institute

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

School is a big commitment of not just money, but time. The admissions staff goes through quite a bit to make sure that you're in a place where you will be successful in completing the program. If you do enroll, the cost associated with not completing the program isn't in "fine print." It's a chart that shows the amount of hours you've completed vs. what you owe in tuition if you complete 'x%' of the program. The student, the staff member, & the parent (if the student is a minor) are required to sign off on this. It's one of the many reasons why attendance is so important. In an unforeseen circumstance, the student is allowed to go on a leave of absence and continue the program when they are ready to return. If you've gotten a quarter of the way through only to decide it's just "not for you," you've potentially taken the spot of another student who would have completed the program successfully. It's a big investment of time & money, and if you AGREE to complete school and don't, then you SHOULD be responsible for the bill.

Aveda Institute

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I enrolled at Aveda Insitutute because they told me a lot of things that when I started the program, Aveda did not follow through with. Most anytime someone wants your money, they are going to be very persuading and nice. Just beware and I hope it works out for you. I did not work our for me as I was a very good student but refused my training and kicked out - being charge thousands of dollars!

You should have asked beforehand.

AUTHOR: Kate - (USA)

I am due to start Aveda Tallahassee in February and they were very up front with me about how much I would owe. They gave me a chart and everything. You should have asked about stuff like that before you committed to them. It is very easy to get information from them if you ask for it. I've only been speaking with them for a few days and I already have TONS of information. It seems as if you were the one at fault.
