Georgia Tech Admissions Process

Georgia Tech's bootcamp programs welcome students from all walks of life. The only requirement is that students be over 18 and have a high school diploma or GED certificate.

The application process opens every quarter. It involves filling out an application form, completing a phone interview with an admissions officer, and, if invited to move on to the next step, taking a critical thinking and problem-solving assessment online.

Georgia Tech Payment Options

  • Upfront: Students may pay for their program upfront, with most bootcamp courses bearing a $10,000 price tag for 12 weeks of full-time study or 24 weeks of part-time study. The digital marketing and product management bootcamps cost slightly less.
  • Installments: Georgia Tech offers an interest-free payment plan to pay off tuition in installments over time, without accruing interest.
  • Loans: Students may take out loans to cover the cost of tuition and are encouraged to contact Georgia Tech to discuss their options.

Georgia Tech Student Outcomes

Georgia Tech does not provide statistics on bootcamp student outcomes, such as graduation rate, graduate employment rate, or graduates' starting salaries. Trilogy Education also does not publish these metrics online. These outcomes can help you better understand bootcamp quality and compare bootcamp providers. Reading student reviews and contacting a former student can also help you determine whether the bootcamp is a good fit for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Georgia Tech Coding Bootcamp

What is Georgia Tech bootcamp?

Georgia Institute of Technology, a state university also known as Georgia Tech, offers 12 or 24-week bootcamp programs run in partnership with Trilogy Education Services. Bootcamp topics include coding, cybersecurity, data analysis, digital marketing, product management, and UX/UI design.

All programs cost around $8,000-$10,000 and are designed for beginners or those looking to advance in their careers. Georgia Tech offers its online coding bootcamp full or part time, and all other bootcamps are offered online following a part-time schedule.

Is Georgia Tech bootcamp worth it?

Whether or not Georgia Tech's bootcamp is worth it largely depends on your personal circumstances. If you are interested in a career change or improving your tech skills and the financial burden will not be too difficult for you to manage, Georgia Tech's bootcamp may be a good idea for you.

This is especially true if you can maintain an income while taking the part-time program. However, the bootcamp may not be worth it if the skills you gain will not be enough to offset the impact of the program's financial burden.

Is Georgia Tech bootcamp hard to get into?

Georgia Tech's bootcamps have a multi-step application process but the programs are designed for beginners without tech experience.

Prospective students must first fill out an application form and may then be invited to a phone interview with a member of the admissions team. The final step is to complete two online assessment tasks — one in critical thinking and the other in problem-solving. If successful in these, the student will be admitted to the bootcamp.

Is Georgia Tech bootcamp free?

Georgia Tech's bootcamp programs bare a $8,000-$10,000 price tag for either a 24-week part-time program or a 12-week full-time program. There are some limited scholarship funds available and an interest-free payment plan that breaks the cost down into installments.

The finance department can also provide advice on loans and other financial options. If you are concerned about the cost, consider reaching out to a financial advisor from the school or looking for independent bootcamp scholarships.
