Tuition & Financial Aid: Although FIDM is very expensive, it is definitely worth it for the education I am receiving. I could never have learned any of this on my own and am so glad to be attending. I am on financial aid and the people who work in the office are always helpful with any questions I have. Each end of a quarter, you have to make sure you are clear financially before registering for the next quarter. The office is always helpful with telling me what I need to complete to continue registering. The process was very easy for me to receive financial aid.

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school comes with a very big price tag. It all depends what you do with the information you are given to decide if the price is worth it.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Though the tuition is steep, and the living expenses in LA are steeper, the school works very hard to make it possible for students to get the most out of their money and their time.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The financial aid at FIDM works primarily off of FAFSA, so make sure you and your parents or guardians (if you are still a dependent student) complete it as soon as possible. Once a student is at FIDM, he or she can utilize the financial advisors to help answer any questions. The financial advisors and the FIDM Portal are both great resources to make sure all of the financial papers are completed.

Financial aid can feel like a long and slightly stressful process, but you can do it! Just take it one form and one question at a time! There's financial aid that you can apply for as a new student at FIDM, and once you're a student, there is more financial aid you may qualify for.
