Code Fellows Courses

Code Fellows numbers their courses similar to college courses, with levels ranging from 100-500. The 100-300 level courses teach beginner and intermediate skills, and the 400 level courses are intensive, 10-week bootcamps that train students in advanced skills and prepare learners with previous coding experience for tech careers. Some students may be able to test out of the lower-level courses and jump right into the 400-level bootcamp.

Code Fellows Admissions Process

Once you've decided which course is right for you, contact Code Fellows through the contact form on their website.

You should then receive an email with a link to set up a call with an admissions advisor. The call will last 15-30 minutes, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions about Code Fellows' courses.

If you're interested in taking a 201 course, you'll either need to test into the course or take the 102 course first; the same goes for other course levels. The 401 courses also require a final technical interview.

Code Fellows Payment Options

If you want to take a Code Fellows coding bootcamp, the price is $12,000 for the 400-level courses. Students who can't afford the full tuition upfront can finance their bootcamp through a bootcamp loan or a bootcamp scholarship.


Skills Fund offers immediate repayment, interest-only repayment, and deferred repayment plans. For example, those who choose immediate repayment are offered a 36-month loan with a 6.50-13.75% interest rate or a 60-month loan with an 8.25-15.00% interest rate. The interest-only and deferred plans allow students to wait until after the completion of their program to start making payments.

Climb Credit has an easy online application that allows you to receive a financing offer in just five minutes. Loans are offered with no prepayment penalties, so it doesn't cost you extra to pay the loan off early.


Code Fellows has a scholarship fund that has paid out more than $3.5 million in scholarships since it was started. The school offers a diversity scholarship, COVID-19 scholarship, recent graduate scholarship, and more. One Black American in each cohort receives a full-ride scholarship.
