Since it’s not always possible for applicants to visit DigiPen, we offer a number of opportunities for you to learn about our school without traveling far from home. By requesting information online, we can send you email notifications for any upcoming events we’ll be attending in your area.

College Fairs and School Visits

Our representatives travel all across the country attending college fairs and visiting high schools. To see if we are traveling to a city near you, please see our traveling schedule below. Also, if you would like to have one of our representatives visit your school or classroom, just let us know and we will be happy to arrange a visit if we are going to be in your area. To request a visit to your school, please email outreach@digipen.edu or call (425) 629-5001.
