You've never seen a graduation like this

Graduation is a thrilling event for both students and their parents and it's an incredible opportunity to celebrate a great accomplishment - earning a degree. At FIDM Los Angeles, the event is held at the STAPLES Center in Downtown and attended by over 12,000 family and friends.

Whether they are first-time college graduates, students who have transferred to FIDM from another college, or those who have already earned a previous degree, the hard work and dedication of our graduates is inspiring.

In keeping with the annual tradition of the college, the new graduates decorate their mortar boards with plenty of personality for their exciting ceremony. "This is something you wouldn't see at other colleges," explains Admissions Director Susan Aronson. "It's a great example of how FIDM has such great creative energy."
