Most months, DigiPen hosts an afternoon information session for prospective students and their families. These events provide an opportunity for visitors to:
Location: DigiPen's Main Campus
Time: 10 a.m. – 2:30 pm
Check-in starts at 9:30 am
A complimentary lunch will be provided.
To register for any of the upcoming information sessions, fill out the registration form.
One of the best ways to find out what DigiPen is like is to spend a day on campus, attending classes, and meeting the members of the community. Throughout the fall and spring, the Admissions department can help prospective students arrange to shadow a current student. Most visitors combine a student shadow with a one-on-one admissions or financial aid meeting. Student shadow requests should be made at least a week in advance. During the summer semester, student shadows are only offered Monday through Thursday. In the fall and spring semesters, recommended schedule days for student shadow visits are Monday through Thursday.
People interested in learning about DigiPen's admission requirements and application process, or looking for specific information about the degree programs offered, are encouraged to visit campus for a tour. Tours are available Monday through Friday at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Tours are followed by a short question-and-answer session.
