Congratulations to the graduating DigiPen Dragons of the fall 2019, spring 2020, and summer 2020 semesters!

While this past year was no doubt different than anyone could have imagined, you have learned, persevered, and succeeded when it mattered. To mark the completion of this part of your journey, we’d like to invite you to celebrate with us as we commend you and your fellow Dragons’ achievements and look forward to a bright future for you all.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will I Receive My Official Diploma?

Since the Commencement Ceremony occurs the weekend following finals, all of your grades have not been received — therefore your official diploma will be mailed to you via USPS several weeks after graduation. Because many graduates move after graduation, please make sure that your current address is updated in SRS so that we can arrange the mailing of your diploma if necessary. If your current address is not updated in SRS, your diploma will not make it to the correct location. Occasionally, an employer will require proof of graduation. If you need proof of graduation and you have not yet received your diploma, we can provide proof through a Graduation Verification form. Email the Office of the Registrar to request a Graduation Verification form.

What if my family wishes to travel internationally for Commencement?

DigiPen can provide a letter of graduation details to international students to help their families with the visiting visa process.

What if I Have Additional Questions?

How to Apply for Graduation

Students should apply to graduate online, using the Student Records System (SRS). 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).

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.
