Tuition & Financing at Flatiron School

Investing in your future is a great decision, even if it’s not an easy one. Everyone deserves the opportunity to succeed, which is why we provide a variety of payment options — so you can focus on your education and your career, not your tuition. 

The payment options below are available whether you’re studying online or on campus, unless noted otherwise.

Tuition options at Flatiron School

Your success is our priority. In addition to our payment options, we offer a money-back guarantee. If you don’t get a job within six months of graduating, we’ll refund your tuition (see details).

Our Income Share Agreement (ISA)

ISAs are designed to make our courses and your new career more accessible — they’re available for anyone in ISA-eligible locations.  

ISAs let you focus on your education and finding a career. You can pay tuition when you’re actually earning income at your new job.

To learn more about how ISAs work, view the terms and specifics for our on-campus and online ISAs. 

We believe in you — and our ISAs are proof. Check out our jobs report and see why we’re so confident.

Our Deferred Payment Program (DPP) – UK students only

Our DPPs make it easy for students in the UK to change their lives. Pay nothing towards your tuition (except an initial deposit) until after you graduate and start earning the minimum income — regardless of job type or industry. You don’t pay until you’re getting paid.

Pay Upfront

This is the lowest overall cost to you. Put down a deposit to save your seat, then pay the remainder of your tuition prior to your start date. You’re done paying by the time the course begins, and can pay either in one lump sum or in installments.

Monthly installments (Online Only)

Pay your deposit upfront, then pay in monthly installments billed automatically to your credit or debit card for 10 months. 

Finance Through Our Lending Partners – Monthly Payments

We’ve partnered with Skills Fund and Climb, two industry-leading financing companies, to give all students the option to pay for courses with monthly payments for up to 36 months.

You can take out a loan equal to the tuition of any U.S.-based course (minus deposit and scholarships).

Step 3

Based on terms, begin paying your loan upon the start of the program. There is no penalty for repaying a loan early.

Cost of Living Loan

We know there are other costs besides tuition. That’s why we’ve partnered with Skills Fund and Climb to offer an additional Cost of Living Loan. You can apply for a loan of up to $7,500 in addition to the course tuition. We get it – even if you’re reinventing your career, you’ll still need to buy groceries and pay bills.

Access Labs Initiative

We believe in breaking down barriers to education — and especially for tech’s most underrepresented communities. Access Labs Initiative expands access to our life-changing courses with zero upfront tuition. For anyone earning less than $35,000 annually, you can experience our Software Engineering Bootcamp with no down payment. You’ll receive  the same expert instructors, cutting-edge curriculum, and dedicated career coaching, but won’t pay tuition until you land a job and start earning income.
