News Description: 

John Paolo’s Xtreme Beauty Institute (John Paolo’s), located at 426 Geyser Road, Ballston Spa, NY, has closed. Several options are available to students as the result of this closure.

Tuition Reimbursement Option

Students enrolled at John Paolo’s who have been unable to complete their program due to the school’s closure are entitled to a full refund of all paid tuition costs through New York State’s Tuition Reimbursement Account (TRA). To initiate a refund, students must complete the BPSS Complaint Form, or send an e-mail request to

Transfer Option

Students may also be able to continue their training at a licensed school of their choosing by utilizing a copy of their academic progress report (transcript) to transfer to another school.

However, if students transfer to another school, the new school will assess their school records to determine how much credit or advanced standing to give them for their John Paolo’s training. Additionally, the transfer school may assess additional tuition fees and will create a new enrollment agreement contract for the transferring student to sign.

It is also important to keep in mind that if a student decides to transfer to another school, the student may not be entitled to a full tuition refund from the TRA, as the student opted to continue his or her training.
