Frequently asked questions

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.

Is there a deadline to apply?

Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis, so 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. This allows 2–3 weeks for the application process and accounts for time to complete the required 100 hours of pre-work.

Can I apply for financing?

Once you have been accepted into the program, you may apply for financing through one of our lending partners. We work with Skills Fund and Climb, who have helped many Flatiron students secure loans. We recommend waiting until after you have been accepted into the program before applying for a loan.

Can I chat with someone on the Admissions team?

Absolutely! You can schedule an appointment with someone from the Admissions team here.

Do I need my own computer?

You will need to ensure you have a suitable computer to study on this course. See specific computer requirements here. You can also ask our Admissions team about your best options for buying or renting.
