50% OFF FIDM TUITION FOR SPRING 2020 QUARTER
We, the students of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, petition the institute to credit all currently enrolled students with a 50% discount on the quarterly tuition costs.
At present, FIDM announced:
- "In an effort to protect the health and safety of the FIDM community, we will shift from on-campus classes to a virtual learning period through the end of the spring quarter.
- "All on-campus events are also canceled through the end of the quarter."
- "The Spring 2020 quarter will now begin on Monday, April 27 and end on Friday, July 3."
Many student’s feel a large amount of angst because our tuition is mainly based on the provided resources at school such as: FIDM Library, Hope Annex Studios, 5th Floor Studios as well as books & supplies but these resources are no longer guaranteed. There is an estimated 2,200 students currently attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and 500 students & parents have signed this petition calling the school to action with one demand:
- Due to the newfound lack of substantial & fundamental resources to give each student the learning experience needed to excel, we the students and parents of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising demand a reduction in tuition by 50% for the Spring 2020 Quarter.
If the school doesn't meet these demands we as students will be forced to disengage from the Spring 2020 Quarter and have no other option than to withdraw.
