Colleague Self-Service (CSS) will be your go-to resource for registration throughout your time at DigiPen. In this section you will learn to use CSS to register for your initial courses as a student, as well as additional information about privacy rights, tuition, and billing.

There are several important registration deadlines you need to know as an incoming student. You will receive your CSS username and password by mid-April or upon enrolling, whichever comes first.

For students who begin classes in the fall, registration begins in May. The initial registration due date will be in mid August. After that date has passed, you may still add classes into late August, if there is room available in the course. You may drop classes without financial penalty until late August. Classes dropped after this date will incur a financial penalty. See the Academic Calendar for more current dates and deadlines.
