Coding Dojo Admissions Process

Applicants begin the admissions process at Coding Dojo by submitting an online application. Once they have applied, applicants can schedule an interview.

Within about five business days from their phone interview, candidates will hear from the admissions team. Coding Dojo's online team provides decisions based on the interview and a student's application materials.

Coding Dojo's online bootcamps accept both beginners and experienced programmers -- about 80% of Coding Dojo students have no previous web development experience. Coding Dojo does not require applicants to pass a "coding challenge" or technical assessment of any kind.

Coding Dojo Payment Options

Coding Dojo offers multiple payment options to make its bootcamps more accessible to students of all income levels.

GI Bill

Coding Dojo accepts GI Bill benefits to pay for bootcamp tuition. Coding Dojo does not participate in the VET TEC program, though this may change in the future.

Income Share Agreement

With Coding Dojo's income share agreement (ISA), students make an initial payment of $1,000 and then make no further payments until they have secured a job paying at least $32,000 a year.

After they have found a job, graduates pay 9.5%-9.8% of their income to Coding Dojo for a period of 20-48 months, depending on the tuition amount and repayment cap. Students attending one of Coding Dojo's two full-time, immersive bootcamps who are not a resident of California can apply for an ISA.

However, those interested in an ISA should be cautious -- ISAs are currently unregulated, and students may end up paying a much higher tuition cost than if they had paid upfront or even through a loan. ISAs often have terms and conditions attached to how graduates conduct their job search and when they must accept a job offer. Make sure to always read the fine print carefully.

Installments

Coding Dojo's standard payment plan requires students to put down a deposit of $1,000 and then make two additional payments once the bootcamp starts.

Loans

Learners may be able to qualify for a loan through Skills Fund -- a lender specializing in loans for bootcamp students.

Scholarships

Some students can offset Coding Dojo's tuition cost by applying for $1,000 awards through the Career Reinvention, Military Retraining, Women in Tech, and Diversity scholarship funds. Coding Dojo also offers a COVID-19 relief scholarship, awarding $1,500-$2,000 to students earning less than $40,000 a year who have been impacted by the pandemic.

Upfront

Coding Dojo provides cost savings to students who pay upfront. For example, students who can afford to pay upfront for the onsite coding bootcamp can save $750, paying $15,245 instead of the usual $15,995 tuition.

Coding Dojo Student Outcomes

Prospective bootcamp students often want to know about potential job prospects after graduation. Since the bootcamp industry is new and largely unregulated, it can be difficult to find information about student outcomes that has been reviewed by an unbiased third party.

When researching bootcamps, prospective students should always carefully review outcome data reported directly by a bootcamp. If you have questions about how the data was collected or how the bootcamp defines certain terms and outcomes in its report, don't hesitate to contact the bootcamp.
