Alumni Audits

DigiPen recognizes that education is an ongoing process, and graduates are encouraged to continue benefiting from their role in the DigiPen community by auditing DigiPen courses they are interested in.

The Alumni Audit allows graduates of DigiPen Institute of Technology to take courses tuition free within ten calendar years after graduation. Participating alumni must review and sign an Alumni Audit Enrollment Agreement prior to attending courses.

Alumni may request to participate by submitting the Alumni Audit Application. If you need any help completing this application, please contact

Alumni Audit Policies

  • Alumni may take any course for which they meet the prerequisites as long as it is within the same level of their earned degree. (i.e., undergraduate alumni may not take graduate-level courses and vice-versa).

  • Tuition, application, and enrollment fees are waived, but alumni are responsible for any course, administrative, and technology fees. Fees are non-refundable for alumni audits.

  • No grades or credits will be awarded for an Alumni Audit, and the audited courses will be recorded separately from alumni degree transcripts.

  • DigiPen will not assist in visa applications for participation in the Alumni Audit.

  • Alumni enrolled in the Alumni Audit are eligible for the following services while participating in the Alumni Audit: badge access to building, network access, Moodle access, and access to Disability Support Services.
