SFD is a studio school focused on fashion design. We do not require students to take English, Math, or other general education courses, therefore, we do not accept federal financial aid; however
SFD tuition is set reasonably with student expenses in mind, and tuition payments are broken down into a manageable payment schedule. Students taking courses full time are generally able to complete the program in two years, and should not expect to carry student loan debt upon graduation. Some students also elect to take classes on a part time basis.
At SFD, we are committed to doing everything we can to work with incoming students to ensure everyone who is interested is able to complete our program.
