Apply for Readmission

Any student who wishes to return to the Institute after an absence may apply to do so by first contacting the Admissions Offices at both SIT (by phone +65 6592 1136) and DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore (admissions.sg[at]digipen.edu).

How to Apply for Readmission:

  1. After contacting the Admissions Offices at both SIT and DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore, the student then must complete a readmission application form. The readmission application form requires a SRS ID and password. Students may contact registrar.sg[at]digipen.edu to request a SRS ID and password if necessary.

  2. If the student attended any other institutions during their absence from the Institute, SIT or DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore may require certified true copies of transcripts from all institutions attended since last attending DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore.

  3. In addition to any transcripts from other institutions, the student must also provide supporting documents relevant to his readmission. Refer to the Reasons for Withdrawal section for required documents. Applicants will be notified of any other additional readmission requirements.

  4. Once the application has been reviewed, the applicant will receive a letter from both SIT and DigiPen about the outcome of the readmission application.

  5. Upon successful readmission, the student applicant will be required to sign a new Student Enrollment Agreement before registering for classes. Readmitted students will only receive further instructions on class registration and course preparation information after signing the SEA.


Reasons for Withdrawal

If you were a student at DigiPen Institute of Technology, and you left for one of the reasons below and would like to apply for readmission, please use this form. See the following sections for any additional materials that may need to be submitted with your application.

Medical Withdrawals

A physician’s statement must be included, and it must indicate that you are ready to resume your studies. Additionally, it should describe any special needs you may require upon your return to the Institute.  

Readmission after Academic Dismissal

A statement explaining what you have been doing since you last attended the Institute, why you would like to return, and how you plan to be successful by returning should be submitted as part of your application for readmission.  

Readmission after Disciplinary Action

Applicants should include a formal appeal for the Disciplinary Committee to review along with their application for readmission. Applicants previously withdrawn for disciplinary reasons must receive clearance from the Disciplinary Committee to return.  

Readmission for Personal Reasons

There are usually no impediments to returning to the Institute if there is space available; however, an academic plan may need to be developed with the student’s advisor upon re-enrollment, and students requesting readmission after an extended period of time must meet with an academic advisor to determine the viability of completing their degree program.  

Readmission after Non-Payment of Account

Outstanding accounts must first be settled before applying for readmission. Once settled, the policy for readmission follows the same guidelines listed under “Readmission for Personal Reasons”.   Exceptions to these requirements will only be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of SIT and the Institute.  


Submission of Official Transcripts of Non-DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore Coursework

All readmission applicants to DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore must request an official transcript from the Institute’s Registrar’s Office to be sent to the SIT Admissions Office as part of their application. Additionally, if the applicant has taken courses from another college since leaving the Institute, he/she must also have any and ALL official transcripts forwarded to the SIT Admissions Office from the Registrar of each institution attended. The transcripts should show all academic work until the last semester or quarter completed. If the applicant is approved for readmission with coursework in progress, his/her admission status will be provisional, pending receipt of the final transcript(s). Finally, readmission applicants who are applying for readmission more than one year after withdrawing and who are not native English speakers may have to submit additional Proof of English language proficiency. Please see the Proof of English Language Proficiency section.
