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 in code.

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 → Logic puzzle

In this take-home challenge, you'll solve problems like a programmer does — much like a chef following a recipe. There's no previous coding experience necessary.

Frequently asked questions

Is there a deadline to apply?

Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis, we continue to accept new applications until the course is filled. So, no deadline to apply — but the sooner you get your application in, the faster we can prioritize it. Our classes fill up well in advance of the start date, so we recommend applying at least 8 weeks before your desired start date.

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

Our modular structure means you’ll 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 and will receive any refund owed within 30 days of your last day of class. Refunds are determined based on the number of weeks in the program and are outlined on the Enrolment Agreement.  For more information contact admissions@flatironschool.com.

What is the schedule like?

Students are on campus for 12 weeks Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Our campus is open 24/7 to students, and we often find them working together at all hours to finish homework and projects. Students do find it extremely difficult to have any other commitments during their studies such as a part-time job, so please plan accordingly.
