Microverse Admissions Process

Microverse applicants must complete four steps to apply to the web development bootcamp.

First, applicants submit an online application. This includes answering some basic personal questions. This process takes about five minutes.

Next, Microverse asks applicants to complete three coding challenges using JavaScript. These challenges should take about 2-3 hours to complete. These challenges require applicants to have some basic coding skills in JavaScript. Applicants with no coding experience can take Microverse's Level Up Experience course to gain practical coding knowledge.

Third, applicants work through the Microverse Trials, which take about 12 hours to complete. Microverse pairs each applicant with three other candidates and asks the group to solve some collaborative coding challenges and build an HTML page. Applicants need a stable internet connection, a working microphone and webcam, and the ability to communicate in written and verbal English to complete this part of the application process.

Finally, applicants complete a 20-minute interview with the Microverse team to determine if the candidate is a good fit for the program.

Microverse Payment Options

Income Share Agreement: In an income share agreement, students only begin paying tuition after they've completed the bootcamp and found a job. Graduates then pay 15% of their monthly salary until they reach a cap of $15,000. Students who do not find work as software developers or make less than $1,000 per month do not pay tuition.

Microverse Student Outcomes

Outcome reports help prospective students determine how effective a bootcamp program is. Readers should always look for student outcomes verified by a trusted, third-party source. Bootcamps that belong to the Council on Integrity in Results Reporting (CIRR) have audited outcomes data that you can find on the CIRR website.

Microverse only provides self-published data. Readers should be wary of outcome reports self-published by a bootcamp without any independent verification. Readers can always contact the provider for more detail about how they collect their data.
