The SRS, or Student Records System, is an online system developed for DigiPen to help you access the information you want, when you want it. Amongst other functions, you can use this online system to check your grades, register for classes, add and drop courses from your schedule, and submit transfer credits for evaluation.
You may need to update your password (see instructions below) before the system allows you to continue.
Keeping your address and contact details up-to-date is critical. This is how DigiPen's Administrative office communicates important information to students.
If the courses are not valid, SRS will tell you why. You may not add invalid courses to your registration request. If you do not receive the section or course that you wanted, you may be missing the required co- or prerequisites, or there could be a time conflict.
If a course is found to be "invalid" by the system, the entire registration will not go through. In order to register for classes you will need to remove the invalid class from the schedule and resubmit the form.
Your registration request will be sent to the Administration office for processing. Once it is processed, your registration is complete. Information is sent to Accounting and Financial Aid for billing and aid disbursement purposes.
The Recommended Sequence of Courses (RSOC) is the schedule of courses (found in the Course Catalog) that all students should follow to stay on track for degree completion. "Easy Options" are pre-made schedules that follow the RSOC.
Incoming students will be assigned to an advisor during Orientation, but should still register for all the required classes as soon as possible. If you have any questions before you've been assigned an academic advisor, contact Student Affairs.
All students should meet with their advisor once a semester to ensure that they are on track for degree completion. If you don't know who your advisor is, check on SRS under your Personal Information. The advisor will be listed about halfway down the page.
To prepare to register for classes or find answers to frequently asked registration questions, please see Registration.
Please be aware that you cannot make changes to your schedule until after your initial registration has been received and processed by the Administration. Adds and drops will be completed once the Administration processes your request.
Keep course add/drop deadlines in mind. All important deadlines are listed in the Academic Calendar (online and in the course catalog). Once a deadline passes, you cannot add or drop a class and will be committed to the choices that you have made.
Your credit evaluation request will be sent to the Administration office for processing. Your request will be marked as either "Approved" or "Denied." Once the evaluation is complete, this information is sent to the Accounting and Financial Aid offices for billing and aid disbursement purposes.
Please see Transfer Credit for more information about DigiPen's credit evaluation policies and contact the Registrar's Office if you have any questions.
From Grades Report view mode, you may either view the information or print it out.
In addition to announcements and news posted to the website, you can also find important notices (e.g., new course listings, on- and off- campus job opportunities, and updated lab hours) via the Student Bulletin Board on SRS.
There are various other SRS processes (most found under "Online Requests") that are not specifically outlined in this guide. These currently include:
Other administrative functions that cannot be filed through SRS (e.g., request for change of major) must be submitted in paper form to the front office.
Always remember to log out of your account when you are finished with your SRS session, especially if you are on a public computer.
If you are having technical or other difficulties using SRS, contact the Administration office at (425) 558-0299 or email srs[at]digipen[dot]edu.
