Admissions Event Calendar

Shadow a Current Student

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.

Dragon Wings Program

We believe visiting DigiPen Institute of Technology’s campus is an invaluable opportunity for prospective students — one that should not be denied due to prohibitive travel expenses or financial hardship. The Dragon Wings Program aims to remove potential barriers to entry by providing prospective students with travel, lodging, and meal reimbursement for a day-long campus experience.

Dragon Wings participants may choose to shadow and attend classes with a current DigiPen student, or to attend a Preview Day. As a part of your visit, you will have the opportunity to tour the campus, speak with admissions representatives, and learn about student life.
