Join us online for this webcast created for rising/incoming high school seniors and their families planning to apply for fall 2021 admissions. We will be covering how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the admissions process and what we’re doing to adapt financial aid, housing, and student services to address many of the concerns we’ve been hearing. Register for the livestream today and be sure to ask us any questions you have for our staff and students.
Angela Kugler, Senior Vice President of External Affairs, will open the livestream by informing parents and students about DigiPen’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, which policies have changed as a result, and what to expect from DigiPen for the fall 2020-21 academic year.
