There are a few different ways to fund your coding bootcamp experience. We offer multiple scholarships, work with industry-leading lenders, and accept up-front payments.
Apply for a loan with Meritize today, it only takes a few minutes
For students who aren’t able to afford LEARN’s tuition up-front, we’re able to provide loans through our financing partner, Meritize. Once your loan is approved LEARN academy will reach out with the next steps in the admissions process.
Meritize looks beyond your FICO score and uses your previous academic, military, or work achievements to potentially improve your loan options.
Meritize allows you to defer payments for up to 3-months after graduation.
Even students who may lack a co-borrower can improve their loan options by sharing their past merits.
Deferred Tuition Agreement with Stride, pay only a small upfront deposit until you get a job
An alternative to paying all of the tuition up-front or taking out a loan, Deferred Tuition Agreements offer LEARN academy students an innovative way to fund your program and launch a new career in software development. With a DTA, you pay an affordable, fixed monthly amount only after graduation and once you are employed and earning more than $2,500 / month ($30,000 per year). We look at where you’re going, not where you’ve been, so rates are based on your expected earnings after completing our program. Note: This funding option is available to a maximum of two students per cohort who must complete the LEARN DTA application to be considered.
No accruing interest—ever! Even while you’re in school not making payment.
No hidden fees.
Shorter duration (4 years) vs. traditional loans (10+ years).
Grace period and automatic deferral for periods where you are unemployed and/or make less than the minimum income threshold ($30,000).
SkillsFund offers access to tuition and the ability to defer payments until after graduation.
LEARN academy has partnered with SkillsFund to give our students more choices who cannot afford up-front payments. Apply to SkillsFund, it only takes a few minutes. Once your loan is approved, LEARN academy will reach out with the next steps.
SkillsFund uses your credit score to measure eligibility for the loan, adding a co-signer is also an option.
*Please note individuals are only eligible for one discount or scholarship option.
