Code Platoon in the News

Am I Eligible?

If you have served in the Armed Forces, and have 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.

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.

In addition, all women are guaranteed a $500 scholarship from the Women In Technology Scholarship fund.
