DigiPen welcomes applicants from all types of educational backgrounds and encourages homeschoolers to apply. All applicants are evaluated on an individual basis and all aspects of their application materials are considered.
The following requirements are for homeschooled students applying to any of DigiPen's undergraduate degrees.
In addition to the regular undergraduate application materials, homeschooled applicants from the state of Washington should submit as much information as possible about their homeschool experience, including a detailed homeschool transcript that provides course titles, a brief description of each course's content, a grade or performance assessment for each course, details about the duration of study, and the student's (expected) graduation date.
Due to the diverse nature of homeschool requirements from state to state, DigiPen prefers the following materials as proof of high-school graduation from applicants homeschooled in states other than Washington:
Other forms of proof of high-school equivalence will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but should be approved in advance by contacting the Office of Admissions at admissions[at]digipen[dot]edu.
