Testimonials from the boot camp community

Justin Q.

Columbia Engineering Coding Boot Camp

"I have learned more here than I ever could have learned on my own. The way that the instructors care about your education is phenomenal. It is a boot camp, so be ready to take on new information and projects within an allotted amount of time. I completely recommend the boot camp for anyone who is interested in embarking on a new journey."

Teri Markle

Associate Dean of Continuing Education, University of Denver

"Partnering to offer boot camps as another alternative pathway for our community aligns directly with our goal of helping to shrink skills and equity gaps that persist within our workforce."

Carraig Stanwyck

Director of Information Security, Wave, a brand of H&R Block

"We don’t maintain this legacy idea that you have to have a certain number of years of school, or that you need a specific certification. A boot camp shows you’re the kind of person who can offer those qualities we value."

Frequently asked questions

Enrolling in a boot camp just takes four basic steps: 

Step 1: Form submission. Fill out our program interest form with a few key details so that we can get in touch with you.

Step 2: Admissions interview and application. Connect with a member of our admissions team for a quick phone interview to discuss the program in more detail, ask questions, and talk through your goals.

Step 3: Assessment. Complete a multiple-choice critical thinking and problem-solving assessment. 

Step 4: Financial options, deposit, and enrollment agreement. After acceptance into the program, you will connect with admissions to discuss which financial option works best for you. Once you’ve approved your desired payment method, you’ll finalize your enrollment by paying your deposit, and by reviewing and signing your enrollment agreement.

That’s it! You’re now ready to begin your program’s pre-work and prepare to start your boot camp!

Boot camps are offered year round, though start dates depend on the program you choose. Contact our admissions team to learn more about program-specific schedules and cohort start-date timing.

We offer full-time (12 weeks) and part-time (18-24 weeks) program options. Our flexible learning schedule is specifically designed for working adults, students, and busy professionals. Learners enrolled in our part-time programs should expect to attend live, instructor-led classes each week, and dedicate at least 20 hours outside of class for self-study and projects. If you’re seeking a more accelerated learning experience, consider one of our full-time (12-week) boot camps, which hold classes Monday through Friday.

All boot camps are offered fully online and include live, virtual classroom sessions led by expert instructors who bring their real-world experience — business, technology, academia, and more — directly to you.

Throughout your boot camp and your career, you will have access to career counselors — who can review your resume and help you prepare for interviews — and network with our global alumni community. You will also be able to connect with a network of more than 250+ employers — including half of the Fortune 100, as of 2021 — who are seeking skilled boot camp graduates.

At the end of the boot camp, you will receive a partner-backed credential. You will also complete the program with a portfolio of work to show your skills to potential employers.

Boot camps are ideal for those who are interested in advancing or getting started in a high-demand tech field. You do not need prior experience to apply to and succeed in a boot camp — you will receive academic and career support every step of the way.

No. You do not need a bachelor’s degree or prior experience to enroll in a boot camp; however, a bachelor’s degree is recommended for some programs. Applicants must be 18 years of age and hold a GED or higher. Speak to an admissions representative to see if you meet enrollment requirements.

That’s okay! Explore your interests and develop new skills with free courses in dozens of subjects; hone your leadership skills with executive education programs; or take the next step in your education with our degree offerings. Boot camps are just one way to unlock your potential. Explore our free-to-audit courses, executive education, degree programs, and more.
