Congratulations on your acceptance to DigiPen Institute of Technology! You have a lot to do between now and your first day of classes, and we’re here to help. Step one is logging into your Colleague Self-Service (CSS) account and reviewing all of your options there. You will be given instructions on how to do this during the admissions process.

During your time at DigiPen, CSS will be your go-to tool for handling everything from career services, to academic advising, to tuition payments. As an incoming student, it’s also a unified resource to help you prepare for your arrival on campus and beyond. Are you ready to make your transformation into a DigiPen Dragon? Start reading below.

  • DigiPen Digital Swag

    As an incoming student, we hope you’re proud to be a DigiPen Dragon. Decorate your digital space with a collection of DigiPen-themed backgrounds and images.

  • DigiPen Dispatch

    Friends and family members of newly minted DigiPen Dragons can stay in the know through the DigiPen Dispatch. Sign up today for monthly newsletters about student life and campus events.

  • Preparation

    Do you know where to purchase school supplies? What kind of laptop computer do you need? This section of the Student Portal has answers. And if you still have questions, you will also find the dates for the Accepted Student Open House and New Student Orientation.

  • Registration

    Register for your classes through CSS. Based on your program of study, a four-year timeline plan will be provided that allows you to review the course timetables for upcoming semesters and create your own class schedules. For additional help, advisors and a short video guide are available.

  • For International Incoming Students

    A few additional steps must be taken by international students prior to arriving at DigiPen for the first time. Visa applications, SEVIS fees, and travel arrangements all need to be addressed well in advance. We have put together several pages of helpful advice for navigating these topics.
