Frequently asked questions

Is there an application deadline for the Flatiron School Merit Scholarship?

The Flatiron School Merit Scholarship is an ongoing program, and there is no application deadline. Scholarships are awarded to up to 150 new enrollees across all Flatiron School programs globally.

Are there prerequisites to apply to Flatiron School?

While there are no prerequisites to apply to our courses and we welcome beginners, we recommend exploring our free course lessons; Intro to Coding, Intro to Data Science, and Intro to Cybersecurity. Flatiron School's blog is another great resource to familiarize yourself with careers in tech, learn more about our courses, and hear from our alumni about their experiences.

The first step is to fill out a written application. Once submitted, you should hear back from our Admissions team on the next step within 2 business days. 

If your application is chosen to move forward, you will be invited to schedule a video call with a member of the Admissions team to get to know you better.

Upon admission and enrollment, depending on the course, you will be sent instructions for how to access “pre-work.” Pre-work is a prerequisite to starting any of our programs.

Students must be over the age of 18 to apply to our courses and must have obtained a high school diploma or GED.
