Books & Supplies Policies
These policies include purchasing books and supplies, and book and supply returns.
Books and Supplies: In order to best meet the educational requirements of its programs, FIDM provides, for sale, the books and supplies necessary for success for each course for which the student is enrolled. After registration, students may purchase books and supplies from FIDM or another vendor of their choice. To purchase items from FIDM, students should visit the FIDM store on the LA campus or www.thefidmstore.com. Students MUST acquire all required course materials by the first meeting of each class. Students who attend the first week of class, unprepared, may be dismissed from the class and unable to return until all course materials are acquired.
Book and Supply Returns: Students who cancel an enrollment agreement within the cancellation period and who have purchased books and/or supplies from the FIDM Bookstore may return those items for a full refund. No refunds will be made for any materials not originally purchased from FIDM, or for materials that are not returned. Students who drop a class, or withdraw from FIDM, and who have purchased books and/or supplies from the FIDM Bookstore, may return these items to the FIDM Bookstore no later than the last day of week three of the quarter. The returned items must be unused, in perfect condition, and accompanied by a receipt. FIDM will not accept returns of items purchased elsewhere.
