• How can I apply to scholarships for the in-person program?

    All scholarships to our in-person program are granted after a student is admitted. Scholarships are granted on a need and merit basis, with preference given to underrepresented minorities in tech, including women and military veterans. If you feel that describes you, you can share your story with us on the scholarship application once you are admitted into the program.

  • How do I prepare for the technical interview?

    Our technical interview is meant to assess your current understanding and aptitude for learning code. If you are selected for a technical interview, we will ask you to start working through a brief coding challenge and follow that with a technical discussion with an instructor based on the code you wrote. The best way to prepare for this interview is to complete one of our free Intro tracks: Intro to Ruby or Intro to Javascript or Bootcamp Prep. The material covered in the technical interview is similar to the material covered in these tracks.

  • I was admitted to a cohort but can’t start until next month, can I defer my enrollment?

    We recognize that sometimes “life happens” and that students who have been admitted to one class may need to defer and start with us at a later date. Students may defer up to three start dates beyond the class to which they are admitted. If you must defer farther out than that, we may ask you to repeat some or all of the admissions process to ensure your readiness for the later start date. Students may defer only once without reapplying.

  • I wasn’t admitted the first time around, can I re-apply?

    Flatiron School’s application process is rigorous, and sometimes students who don’t get accepted the first time around are able to ‘study up’ and get accepted the second time around. As such, students are invited to re-apply after three months have passed from initial decision. Students are permitted a total of three application attempts, so re-applicants are advised to use that time building their skills (both professional and technical) and to submit a second application that is materially different from the first one, showcasing your hard work and improvements over that time.
