COVID-19 Update: Our COVID-19 Admissions and Financial Aid FAQ page has important changes to the financial aid process for students applying for the upcoming semester. Financial assistance related to the impact of COVID-19 is available — see the Bridge Scholarship, Shield Scholarship, and Federal Grants Related to the COVID-19 Pandemic for more information.

Financial aid is the funding that can help students bridge the gap between the cost of attending DigiPen and their own financial means. While understanding the different types of funding and regulations surrounding college finance may seem daunting, DigiPen’s Office of Financial Aid is here to help guide students and families through the process. We have assembled a comprehensive collection of resources that cover everything from basic terms and definitions to more specific forms of financial aid based on academic merit or veteran status. Please see the Financial Aid Handbook for more detailed information.

Regardless of where students are in the process, our staff is always happy to answer questions and provide information on how best to fund one’s education. Feel free to contact us by phone, email, or appointment.
