Admission/Denial to DigiPen (Singapore)’s Programs
DigiPen (Singapore) considers every part of an applicant’s materials and qualifications when evaluating the applicant for admission. Meeting the minimum standards is not a guarantee for admission. Applicants who exceed the minimum standards are more likely to be admitted.
Accepted graduate applicants will receive an enrollment packet via email. This packet includes an official letter of acceptance and, if applicable, a request to furnish proof of high school graduation, polytechnic diploma, or completion of a bachelor’s degree before the start of classes in the fall. Students will receive their student enrollment agreement by email. By returning the signed enrollment agreement and proof of graduation, an applicant has confirmed enrollment. Applicants who are accepted and enroll are required to attend an official orientation session prior to the start of the program.
Applicants who are not accepted to the Institute will receive a letter of rejection via email. When possible, DigiPen (Singapore) will attempt to provide information about the specific areas in which an applicant needs improvement if the applicant wishes to reapply in subsequent years.
Applicants who are denied admission are encouraged to reapply for a future year. By improving the areas suggested on the original decision letters (e.g., devoting more time and energy to a new art portfolio), many individuals who have reapplied for admissions have been accepted. To reapply, applicants should submit a new application.
