Step 1: Non-Technical Skills Assessment

The CCAT is a proven, scientifically validated aptitude test that measures an individual’s ability to solve problems, digest and apply information, learn new skills, and think critically.

  • The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) (15 minutes)
  • A quick typing test (1 minute)

Step 2: Submit Application

Set aside 10-20 minutes to complete your application, which contains questions related to your background and professional goals.

Please note that our cohorts fill up quickly. Indicating a particular cohort start date on your application does not guarantee a seat in that cohort. Rather, your acceptance into the program means you can enroll in any cohort with available seats as long as that cohort begins within one year of your acceptance.

Step 3: Attend an Info Session

We strongly encourage all applicants to attend a live online info session, where our team walks you through the curriculum, our approach to teaching, the daily schedule, and much more. Come get all your bootcamp-related questions answered during the event and Q&A session. We’ve seen that students are less likely to pass the interview if they did not attend the info session beforehand.

Step 4: Admissions Interview

This 15-minute non-technical interview helps us get to know you a bit better. We’re looking for students who can demonstrate a passion for a new career in software engineering, who can work independently and also collaborate with others, and who can talk about their commitment to the rigor of the bootcamp.

Those who do not pass the interview will need to wait 6 months before scheduling another attempt.

Here’s everything you’ll need to successfully navigate the admissions process and start the bootcamp ready to learn.

Attitude and approach

  • You’re excited to embark on a challenging and rewarding journey toward a new career.
  • You’re interested in and have researched what it means to be a professional software engineer.
  • You’re ready to work incredibly hard on an individual level and to collaborate with your classmates in ways that mirror professional environments.
  • You know when to ask for help, and you’re open to accepting it from your instructors, classmates, and career advisors.

Logistics

  • You can show up on time and participate in weekday classes from 9am – 7pm PT for 19 weeks.
  • You understand this course is live and online and will require a computer, a reliable WiFi connection, being on camera during class sessions, and a quiet place to work.
  • You’ve read through our tuition options and understand your best route forward.
  • You have a plan for how to cover living expenses while in the program.

How To Enroll After You’re Accepted

Once you’ve been accepted into the program your enrollment advisor will be in touch regarding the next steps, and within 48 business hours after that conversation, we’ll send you an enrollment agreement. You’ll need to sign and return that, pay your $100 non-refundable deposit, and secure financing.

After you’ve been accepted into the program and paid your deposit, and 4 weeks prior to the course start date, we’ll provide you with some primer material to review high school math and computer literacy. You’re highly encouraged to complete these, as they’ll help get you into the right mindset before the first day of the program.

At this point, all you need to do is prepare your quiet work space and make sure your schedule is cleared so you can start fresh and ready to learn on the first day and moving forward.
