Full-time programs don't work for everyone. That's why we designed our part-time bootcamp to give you the same outcome as our full-time programs, but on a more flexible schedule. We understand that you’ll be juggling a lot as a part-time student, so we provide a more accommodating attendance policy and only give assessments every other week.
