You’ll network, connect, and collaborate with Flatiron School grads with access to our events and network wherever you go.

“Although I had a background in engineering and some minor coding, committing to the course was a career change. The coursework is hard but almost addicting. I was working full time while taking the course and I would look forward to getting home from work just so I could keep going with the lessons and labs.”

Portfolios

Prove your coding chops

Every company needs developers — with the portfolios students graduate with, they show companies what they can do and how they can be a valuable member of any team.

Join the developer community

Active Github Profile

GitHub is the modern software engineer’s resume. Students push every line of code they write at Flatiron School to GitHub through our proprietary platform, Learn.co, giving them an extensive profile to show employers and fellow engineers.

Robust Blog

All Flatiron students maintain technical blogs to show they can not only write code, but also communicate how that code works – an essential skill for software engineers. (Explore our community’s blog posts in Learn Magazine.)

Technical Presentation

Students build their credibility as engineers and immerse themselves in the technical community by attending — and challenging themselves to present — at technical Meetups and conferences.

Admissions

What the admissions process looks like

We don’t just admit individual students to our program; we curate a community, cultivating a diversity of thought and experience.

Application process

What we look for

1. Apply

Submit a written application. Tell us about yourself and why you want to learn to code and join our community.

Passion

Above all, we love code. We bring together people who see it as a craft and want to be great at it — not just for their careers or as a means to an end, but as an end in and of itself.

2. Admissions Interview

Chat with an Admissions Advisor. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Nothing technical — just a friendly conversation.

Aptitude

Flatiron students are smart. Aptitude for programming is represented as much in math majors as in piano players. But it’s the rare combination of creativity and analytical ability that makes our students truly shine.

3. Technical Review

After writing and submitting some code on Learn.co, you’ll attend a live coding session with an instructor to discuss it and see how it can be improved. You’ll then be notified of your status within 48 hours.

Culture

We don’t just admit students to our Houston coding school. We craft a class. A lawyer, journalist, and pro-athlete will do more interesting things together than three of any one background.

Cohorts begin every three weeks. If accepted, there is pre-work to complete before joining us on campus for the immersive program.

FAQ

You have questions; we have answers

  • Where can I attend Flatiron School's Software Engineering immersive course?

    Students can attend Flatiron School’s flagship coding bootcamp at our NYC campus (11 Broadway), our Washington, D.C. campus located in WeWork White House (1440 G St NW), Houston (708 Main Street), Atlanta (1175 Peachtree St NE), Seattle (1411 4th Ave), Chicago, Austin (316 W 12th St), Denver (2420 17th St) or our London campus located in WeWork Finsbury Pavement (131 Finsbury Pavement). To compare program dates by location, you can toggle between campuses via the “Location” dropdown at the top of the page or in the side menu.

  • Is there a deadline by which to apply?

    Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis, so we continue to accept new applications until the course is filled. Therefore, there is no deadline to apply by – though the sooner you get your application in, the better we are able to prioritize it. Because our classes fill up well in advance of the start date, we recommend applying at least 8 weeks before your desired course date. This allows us 2-3 weeks to conduct the application process and accounts for time to complete the mandatory 100 hours of pre-work, which most students report takes at least 3 weeks.

  • How do I know I’m learning? What happens if I fall behind?

    Our modular structure means you’ll always know that you’re gaining the competencies to become a software engineer — and it gives us the opportunity to see who might need more mentorship to get there. Because our curriculum builds cumulatively, each module concludes with a 1:1 instructor review to check in on your progress and make sure you’ve gained a strong understanding before we add more concepts on top of it in the next module. If you don’t pass the review, you’ll receive additional direct mentorship to solidify your understanding and take it again. If you don’t pass this time, you’ll have the opportunity to repeat the full three-week module at no extra cost. You can repeat a module once; if you don’t pass the second time through, you will be asked to leave the program for a partial refund. Partial refunds are determined based on the number of weeks in the program.  For more information contact admissions@flatironschool.com.

  • What is the schedule like?

    Students are on campus for 15 weeks Monday – Friday from 9am – 6pm. Our campus is open 24/7 to students and we often find them working hard at all hours to finish homework and projects. Students find it extremely difficult to have any other commitments during their studies such as a part-time job.
