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).
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.
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.
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.
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 Applicants previously withdrawn for disciplinary reasons must receive clearance from the Disciplinary Committee to return.
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.
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.
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.
