For those needing more flexibility, our part-time bootcamp allows you to keep your day job and learn to code on nights and weekends. As a graduate of either course, you'll get training you need to become a successful software engineer.
During the job search period, we’ll provide you with 1:1 career coaching, interview prep, networking opportunities and more. You'll be able to showcase your new coding skills and jumpstart your career as a software engineer. Alumni from our 2019 campus-based programs experienced impressive outcomes after they graduated, including a 94% average placement rate and an average first year compensation of $96,763. See the data.
As part of the application, we’ll ask you to provide a variety of information: demographics, job and education history, current coding proficiency, motivation for wanting to become a software engineer and more. You won't need to provide any special documentation at this step in the process. Before submitting an application, please be sure you meet our eligibility requirements.
The average amount of time it takes to complete App Academy’s application and start your software engineering journey remotely or in-person.
The average amount of time to complete the Admissions process. 2-4 weeks for our online immersive programs, or 6-8 weeks for our campus-based, full-time programs.
There are several steps that you'll have to complete after you receive your admissions decision.
We’ll ask for some more concrete information from you, including verification of your high school degree, any signed contracts we need, and other pertinent documents.
We offer several tuition options, depending on the program you're looking to enroll in: Upfront, Climb Credit Financing, Hybrid, ISA (Income Share Agreement) and Deferred.
If you choose a tuition option that requires a deposit, we'll look to collect it from you upon your enrollment.
To make the most of your time at App Academy, it’s a good idea to do some research before you get started. The more knowledge you have, the more you can benefit from the curriculum. We'll provide you with a list of suggested prep work to complete ahead of Day 1 of your chosen program.
We believe that anyone can learn to become a software engineer, but we do have a couple of basic requirements. To apply, you must:
• Be 18 years of age or older
• Provide a copy of a high school diploma or equivalent certificate (such as a GED)
• Own a laptop or computer. (See specs here)
To be eligible for our Income Share Agreement (ISA) tuition plan, students must have a valid U.S. work authorization (citizenship or Green Card). We still encourage international students to apply.
App Academy declines to admit some students if they do not pass certain stages of the admissions process. However, App Academy also provides applicants multiple attempts to pass each admissions step, as well as resources and guidance to help prepare you along the way. We’ll ensure you understand what you need to work on in order to be ready for our rigorous programs.
Reach out to your Admissions Specialist if you’re having any trouble with the process. We also offer Bootcamp Prep courses that can help you prepare for our Campus-based, Full-Time Program application cycle.
• Campus Bootcamp Prep
• Online Bootcamp Prep
We’re not looking for specific academic or professional achievements. In fact, we’ve had many students enter the program with no coding experience whatsoever and achieve great success in the industry.
For our on-campus programs, work diligently through the prep work materials and practice problems that we provide throughout the application process.
For our online courses, we recommend you speak with an Admissions Specialist before scheduling your non-technical interview. Be professional, prepared, and engaged during the interview.
Once provisionally accepted to an online program, students receive self-paced technical learning challenges embedded within our prep materials to create a proper coding foundation. We’ll provide all the materials necessary for you to be successful.
If you still need more structured support, our Bootcamp Prep courses can serve as extra guidance. Contact an Admissions Specialist if you have any additional questions. Note, however, that the Bootcamp Prep Program is designed to prepare you for the campus program and not our online program admissions processes.
