Tuition & Financial Aid:
I'm learning a lot and my grades are great! I know this school is expensive but I wasn't going to let it stop me from going there; it was where I wanted to go. The financial aid offices are great. They help you whenever you ask. All you have to do is ask(: I always email them with anything I need and then come up to them personally. My tips for financial aid is basically watch out for the different of loans and grant. Very big difference.

everyone has their own group of friends but it is easy to meet new people through classes, guest speakers, and student council.

I have learned so many new things and I love that I will be doing these things in my future. Some of the generic classes aren't fun and don't have a lot to do with the major you are in but they are still interesting.
My favorite part of each quarter is getting supplies for each class! it's like christmas!
College Senior 2013-02-21T04:39:13Z
Tuition seems like a lot at first but this also includes all of your books and supplies. Make sure you keep track of your supplies because some of them are expensive to replace. You will get industry experiences in almost all of your classes and you will meet many new people that can help you will studying and class work. Some of your teachers you will love and others not so much but all of your classes are important to the feild you want to go into so dont skip classes!

My school has many fashion subscriptions to trend reports, runway images, and great books and computers for school work. The library staff is very helpful and has materials such as construction paper to light boxes for students to use. The career center gives information about interviews and job openings. FIDM has a job fair where multiple store representatives come in and interview students on the spot.

FIDM has flexible options for classes and has the same course multiple times a week. They are not flexible on late work or making exceptions on missing class. I am able to work 20 hours a week and still focus on school work. I did not attend a college before FIDM so I am not sure how easy transferring credits would be.

The facilities on campus are great! I love the library which has great resources for research and for information ranging from trends to issues of vogue from the 1900s. The idea center is very helpful for tutoring and working in a quiet place. The career center always has lists of jobs that are hiring and volunteer opportunities. It is a very comfortable campus and the staff and faculty are very nice. There are t.v.s in the lounges and students are able to rent movies.

I love my school. I am so happy to go here. I am an online student so I cant descibe the student body. I do not think they just accept whoever, so I am very grateful to have been accepted. My only complaint is that I dont think that some of the online teachers answer their emails fast enough. We are online, thus we arent in a classroom where we can ask questions. We can only email our questions so if teachers arent responding it limits our time we have to do our assignments.

Fidm Oc Is So Homy and Perfect – facilities are in prefect condition
campus life- lots of free food, guest speakers, weekend activities, holiday celebrations
the oc campus is fairly small so everyone is very close, it feels like home (considering i spend most of my time there whether in class or working on hw)
the programs are intense and filled with so much for you to learn and the teachers are so helpful and knowledgeable and can relate industry experiences they have to what we learn if using a book

I Love Being a Merch Prod Dev Major! my major is hard and requires a lot of work, but i love it. the classes are so diverse and really help build off of one another. the school itself is beautiful and always kept in perfect shape and internships/job opportunities are easy to access through the student portal or on campus in the career center, as well as in person opportunities (companies come to campus to hire, we also have a job fair)
College Senior 2012-05-13T00:28:41Z
Awesome Professors – i love all of my professors. they really care about the students performance and want each and every one of us to succeed so we will do well in the industry. they are all knowledgeable and can relate ideas in the books to real life situations very easily. as for work load, each quarter only gets harder and harder. the teachers must teach what they are told to teach and often its a lot for the student and teacher in a 3/6 hour class period.
College Senior 2012-05-13T00:24:26Z
I Love Being a Fidm Student – the oc campus is very small and homey, all of my peers feel like family and the campus is full of familiar faces. all of my teachers are amazing- they all have lots of industry experience and amazing stories to share. i commute to school 3 days a week which makes my 5 class schedule a little difficult but i have been able to work through it and achieve straight a's! i may not be getting the typical college experience (sorority, living in a dorm/on my own) but i wouldn't change my decision of going to fidm for the world!

Job Prospects Look Promising – I think the job prospects for my major and with help from my school will be promising. I know that they cannot gaurantee a job for me anywhere but going to FIDM definitely helps you get your foot in the door and the people at this campus really care about helping me out. My Student Activities director is amazing and is going to try to get me hired doing some design work and so is my speech instructor.

Ambitious People – Students at my school are very ambitious just for attending this school, but many of them have already started working in the industry or started they're own self-employed businesses. In this sense I find them inspirational and determined.

easy registration process you get to pick your own classes and times. Great peer to peer interaction and student team work relationships.

I love my school. My school is very unique, just walking through the front glass doors. And walking through the pink hallways to get to class. Is an experience in itself. Yet alone the idea of graduating next year. And being able to work in the fashion industry would be the highlight of my overall experience.Fidm is a known school around the world for the creative minds that have succeeded and will continue from here forward.

FIDM will help me get to where i need to be by the time i graduate which is something i am exteremly excited about.
Recent Alumnus 2012-01-21T00:54:21Z
at FIDM there is a huge range of all kinds of different people which is really cool.
Recent Alumnus 2012-01-21T00:48:48Z
FIDM is unique because of how nice everyone is and how super friendly the students and especially staff are.I absolutely love getting to know everyone there especially considering the fact that I am extremely shy and I don't like talking to people I don't know. If I could do it all over again I would because the atmosphere is just so great and just walking into the building I feel warmth and acceptance.

Best Thing Ever – Having wanted to go to this school for a couple years being here is the best choice that i have ever made! With the hands on work that they teach us there it helps us learn so much more.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Its a Great School – I love the school. The fact that it is private makes you feel like you know everyone. The fast pace helps you to become prepared for the "real world" when their are dead lines and projects due. You practice what you love and everyone is there to help. The school is well known and you hear about alumni doing great in the business. The amount you have to pay is worth getting to know and talk to your teachers to get the help you need.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
