How to Apply

Students should apply to graduate online, using the Student Records System (SRS), no later than December 1, 2017. Include your name as you would like it to appear on your diploma (you must include at least your first initial and full last name). Graduates will also need to pay an administrative graduation fee of $100 to Hiroko Honda in Accounting (425-629-5025) before commencement. Students will not receive their diploma until this fee is paid.

Students wanting to participate in the commencement ceremony on April 29th, 2018 should fill out a Cap and Gown Order form and submit it to the DigiPen Bookstore by Friday, February 23rd, 2018 at 4:00 PM. A Cap and Gown Order Form can be picked up from the DigiPen Bookstore or from the Dragon's Lair, located on the second floor. There is also a $60 regalia fee that must be paid at the time the order form is submitted.

Also on the Cap and Gown Order form is a request for commencement tickets. All family and friends of graduating students need a ticket, so please request the number of tickets you need. Each student is allotted up to 5 tickets and extras are distributed depending on availability. Students requesting extra tickets must e-mail Joanne Ho by Friday, February 23rd, 2018.

Graduating students are responsible for making sure they have satisfied all major requirements in order to graduate. It is strongly recommended that you meet with your academic advisor to perform a degree audit, identify any missing requirements, and verify that you are on track to graduate. Should you have any questions regarding requirements or degree audits, contact Student Affairs.
