With the Flatiron School ISA, we invest in your success, making your career change more accessible.

The Flatiron School Income Share Agreement (ISA) aligns tuition payments with post-program income. You’ll make a $2,000 initial payment upon enrolling at Flatiron School and agree to pay 10% of your monthly gross income once you complete the program and are earning at least $3,333.34/month (equivalent to $40,000/year). Following a six-month grace period, you’ll make a maximum of up to 48 monthly payments over a maximum payment window of up to 96 months (8 years)—but only when you’re earning at least the minimum income. If you’re not earning at least the minimum income, you’re not paying.

This is us investing in your success. We’re proud of our strong job outcomes and are ready to help transform your career.

Questions about the Flatiron School ISA?  

What’s the Flatiron School ISA?

The Flatiron School ISA is an income share agreement (ISA): a financial obligation in which an amount is credited towards the student’s tuition in exchange for the student sharing an agreed upon percentage of post-graduation income over a defined period of time.

Why are you offering this program?

Our goal in offering ISAs is to align education expenses with outcomes. This is us investing in your success.

We know every student’s situation is unique, which is why giving students a variety of options to pay for their education is our priority. In addition to the new Flatiron School ISA, we also offer student financing through Skills Fund and Climb, as well as numerous scholarships based on need, merit, and in support of increasing diversity in tech.

Who’s eligible?

The Flatiron School ISA is currently available to students attending our on-campus career Immersives in Atlanta, with more courses and locations to come. Additional eligibility requirements include being a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and being 18 years or older. Schedule a Q&A with our Admissions team to get more information on ISA eligibility.

How do payments work?

  • Students make a $2,000 initial down payment upon enrolling in Flatiron School.
  • All students receive a six month grace period after graduation when no payments will be required.
  • After the grace period ends, students will pay 10% of their monthly gross income if the student is  earning a monthly income of at least $3,333.34 (equivalent to $40,000/year). Students will receive a monthly bill for this amount, and they can make their payments online, over the phone, or via mail.
  • Following the six-month grace period, students have up to 96 months (8 years) to make the 48 required monthly payments (with payments being required if the student is earning at least the minimum monthly income of $3,333.34). Students’ tuition balance is waived after 8 years if they did not earn at least the minimum monthly income and therefore were not required to make 48 required payments. Payments are not required during months when students’ income is below the minimum income threshold.
  • There is a 1.5x cap on the agreement, meaning students will never pay more than 1.5 times the Tuition Credit Amount under the ISA (plus the initial payment).  

When have I completed the agreement?

Students complete the ISA when any of the following occurs:

  • You make 48 monthly payments.
  • You hit the payment cap.
  • 96 months (eight years) have passed since the end of your grace period.

What if I don’t get a job, or the job doesn’t pay enough?

Payments are not required during months when a student’s income is below the minimum income threshold.

For students who comply with the Career Services Commitment and don’t receive a job offer within six months of the job search start date, the down payment is refunded and the tuition balance is waived (see terms and conditions here). This option is available to Flatiron School students regardless of whether they finance their tuition with an ISA.

If I get a job outside the tech industry, do I still need to make ISA payments?

Payments are based on earning a minimum income, not based on job type or industry. There are no requirements stipulating the nature or type of employment that students choose. If you are earning at least the minimum monthly income—regardless of job type or industry—you will be required to make the monthly payments.
