All students enter DigiPen at a first-year (freshman) standing and if transfer credits are awarded, they serve to lighten a student's course load on a semester-by-semester basis.
Most students decide to complete their courses in the order that they are listed in the Recommended Course Sequences, included in the DigiPen Course Catalog. When students receive transfer credit for a particular class, they can choose to take a lighter course load during the semester that they would have taken that class or they can choose to take another class for which they are qualified, if available.
To request a transfer credit evaluation, students must submit the following for each course that they would like evaluated.
Enrolled students can complete the request through the online Student Record System (SRS) using the login and password provided by Admissions (usually in April).
Students who have been accepted but have not yet enrolled, will need to send an email with the information listed above to the Registration and Credit Evaluation Coordinator, Terri Albright. (terri.albright[at]digipen.edu)
