New incoming undergraduate students will have modules pre-allocated in the first trimester. Please check your class schedule via SIT IN4SIT two weeks before the class starts.

Before you arrive for the start of classes, it’s a good idea to make a checklist of any remaining tasks to complete and supplies to obtain. By coming prepared on day one, you’ll give yourself the best opportunity to succeed in your freshman year and beyond.

The resources below will help organize your preparation for the academic year, and Student Life and Advising is available to answer any other questions you have. Contact us by sending a message to studentlife.sg[at]digipen[dot]edu.

  • Computer Recommendations

    We recommend that you have access to a laptop computer to work on coursework and projects on the go. In this section, we list your computer’s recommended minimum specifications.

  • Why the Nude Model Is Necessary

    As an incoming student entering our BFA in Digital Art and Animation program, you must agree to participate in the study of the nude form. DigiPen (Singapore) maintains that this practice best prepares digital artists and animators for their future careers.
