DigiPen works on a rolling admissions basis, meaning we accept and evaluate applications as they are submitted to us throughout the year. Once your application is submitted and you have provided all the required materials, you can typically expect to receive a decision within two to four weeks for undergraduate applications or four to six weeks for graduate applications. Be sure to apply as early as possible since some programs can fill up!
We encourage you to complete your application and submit the required materials within four weeks of starting the application process. Please contact the Office of Admissions if you need more time to complete your application.
