Paired with our proprietary online learning platform, Learn.co, and individualized support from an Educational Coach, you have access to a personalized learning experience.

Choose Which Course Pace Is Right for You:

The Career Fast Track

Graduate in 5 months with our fastest program pace: full-time. You will work through a minimum of 45-50 hours per week of coursework, and benefit from dedicated, full-time learning. This pacing option requires the most commitment, as you’ll be expected to attend live study groups, complete labs, and collaborate with others in your cohort throughout the day.

Close-Knit Cohort & Group Learning

As a student, you’ll benefit from learning with a small  cohort and a dedicated Cohort Lead who teaches and mentors throughout the entire course schedule, at an average 20:1 student:teacher ratio. Attend live study groups each week with your cohort lead.

Weekly 1:1 Mentorship & Instruction

Meet 1:1 for a full hour with your Cohort Lead weekly to get help breaking through tough technical concepts. Additionally, connect over 1:1 sessions with a dedicated Educational Coach every 2 weeks to review overall progress stay accountable for your progress. These sessions are in addition to real-time support from our Technical Coaches via our Ask A Question feature in Learn.co.

Transforming lives and careers

At Flatiron School, our mission is to enable the pursuit of a better life through education. Hundreds of online students have trusted us with their futures so far, and we continue to release verified job outcomes reports to help students make well-informed decisions about their educational investments. Below are highlights from the 2018 Online Job Reports.

1,000 hours of industry-vetted curriculum

As a Flatiron School student, you’ll develop coding mastery in JavaScript and Ruby, as well as study computer science to ensure you graduate with a skillset that’s highly sought after by employers.

Programming Fundamentals

After diving into HTML5 & CSS, students get comfortable with object-oriented programming, learning to read websites with Ruby and save data to a database with SQL and Object Relational Mappers.

Web Frameworks

Students learn two key Ruby frameworks, first mastering the fundamentals of web programming with Sinatra before experiencing how quickly they can build incredible apps with Rails.

JavaScript

Students gain a thorough understanding of JavaScript and functional programming — crucial for front-end devs — and start to build their own version of React before moving onto the framework itself.

Front-end Frameworks

Students learn to build productive, scalable front-ends with React and Redux, creating slick, functional, reactive code with Redux as a state manager and Rails as the back-end JSON API.

What the application process looks like

Aptitude for software engineering is built from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, journalist, and pro-athlete will approach solutions differently, creating a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All that you need to bring is your passion and an open mind.

Step 1 → Apply

Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.

Step 2 → Admissions interview

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

Step 3 → Admissions decision

You'll receive an admissions decision within a few days of completing your Admissions interview. If accepted, you'll prepare for the first 14 days of the program, a busy and critical time. During these 14 days, you'll complete various requirements to continue in your cohort.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know which course pace is right for me? How big are the class sizes?

Full-time cohorts are ~20:1 student:teacher ratio, and part-time cohorts ~40:1. Which pacing option is right for you depends on two main considerations — how much time you can devote each week and what kind of learning environment you want. The full-time and part-time course paces provide assigned cohorts and require a minimum number of hours per week to drive program completion. Some people want that structure and accountability and are ready to commit that time. Other people with unpredictable schedules require a bit more flexibility and less structure, so they prefer the self-paced program. The self-paced option is also a good choice for students with a bit of background in code to guide themselves through the coursework. Note, all three of our course pace options offer the same industry-vetted software engineering curriculum.

How long is each program?

In the full-time program, each of the five modules takes four weeks. With one week of a scheduled break, you can expect the entire program to take five months. Students choose when to commit the 40-50 hours per week of coursework.

In part-time, the modules take eight weeks and there are two scheduled one week breaks making the program last ten months. Students choose when to commit the 20-25 hours per week of coursework.

In self-paced, you’ll progress through each module at your own speed, but the entire program must be complete within fifteen months.

Why is the full-time program more expensive than the part-time program?

The full-time program is our most intensive program. You are in a cohort of only twenty other students and are assigned a dedicated instructor who is working online with you and your classmates every day. There is no other online program that we offer that has such intensive instructional resources, peer to peer support, and such accelerated progress. It’s our fastest-paced online program — allowing students to graduate in five months — with our lowest ~20:1 student:instructor ratio of any online program — and actually, for any online program we’ve seen. The full-time program’s combination of intensive instruction and support is more comparable to our in-person Software Engineering course offered on campuses.
