Applicants who are interested in taking individual courses that are part of DigiPen's degree programs may register for them based on each semester's course offerings and availability. Applicants will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Courses taken in Non-Matriculated Studies do not lead to a degree and are not applicable to earning a professional certificate from DigiPen.
Applicants to Non-Matriculated Studies must show proof of graduation from high school and a minimum 2.5 grade point average (GPA) in their most recent studies for acceptance into the program.
To apply for Non-Matriculated Studies at DigiPen, simply fill out an Application for Admission and select the Non-Matriculated Studies track that most interests you. Official transcripts showing proof of high-school graduation and appropriate prerequisites should be mailed directly to DigiPen.
