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.
