How long does it take to graduate?

Live students typically graduate in 12-15 weeks. Flex students can graduate anywhere from 20 to 60 weeks, depending on the program you choose.

How frequently is your curriculum updated? 

We are continuously evaluating our curriculum across all programs to ensure that it is current and relevant for today’s job marketplace.

What is the schedule like for Live programs?

It is mandatory for students to be logged on Monday – Friday from 9 AM – 6 PM or 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM (depending on your cohort, including lunch and breaks). During these hours, students attend lectures, work on projects and assignments. In addition to the required hours, most students will need to spend additional time on nights and weekends to complete the work and fully understand the material. Students should expect to devote at least 20 hours a week outside of their classroom commitment to the program - including online hours and additional work at home. Students find it extremely difficult to have any other commitments during their studies, such as a part-time job.

What's Flatiron School's application process like?

The first step is to fill out a written application. Once you submit your application, you will hear back from our Admissions team regarding next steps. If your application moves forward, you will be invited to schedule a video call with a member of the Admissions team to better understand your learning needs, career goals, and whether the program is the right fit for you. Students may be required to complete an assessment as a part of the admissions process. After a technical interview, you will receive an Admissions decision within a few business days.

Is there a deadline to apply to Flatiron School?

Students are accepted on a rolling basis so there is no deadline to apply, but the sooner you submit your application, the more likely you are to secure a spot for your preferred start date. Our cohorts fill up well in advance of their start dates, so we recommend applying at least 8 weeks before your desired start date. This allows 2–3 weeks for you to make it through the application process and accounts for time needed to complete any required pre-work.

Do I need prior experience to apply to Flatiron School?

We do not require you to have prior experience to apply for any of our programs. Our admissions requirements are being at least 18 years old, having a high school diploma or a GED,  having a native or bilingual fluency in English, passing the admission interview(s), and completing any required pre-work.
