Am I Eligible?

If you are a veteran, or currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves, with a burning desire to become a software developer, then you are eligible. We will ask for your DD-214, or Statement of Service if you don’t have one.

Spouses of veterans may also be eligible. Please indicate on your application if you are the spouse of a veteran.

What’s the Tuition?

Tuition for the program is $13,000. However, veterans who are admitted will be eligible to receive scholarships of up to $10,500.

Most veterans can therefore expect their out-of-pocket cost to be $2,500.
