How Deferred Tuition Works

  1. Deposit

    Upon accepting a place with us, you pay $3,000 to reserve your spot.

  2. Repayment

    Upon accepting a full-time position in the tech industry, you pay the remainder of your tuition, $14,910, in regular installments. If you do not receive an offer of full-time work within a year of your graduation date, you do not have to repay your tuition.

Fullstack’s immersive programs are designed for people with some background knowledge in programming who want to make the transition to full-time software developer. Our admissions process involves an application, an online coding assessment, and an interview. Once you submit your application, a member of our staff will send you an invitation to take the admissions test and possibly an invitation to interview. After the interview, you'll receive an admissions decision. You can learn more about our admissions process here. If you'd like help getting ready, we have a preparation course called Bootcamp Prep.

Nuts & Bolts

When you enroll in the Grace Hopper Track at Fullstack Chicago, you are enrolling in the Software Engineering Immersive taught at Fullstack Academy’s Chicago campus.

You apply via the standard Fullstack Academy application process, attend the Software Engineering Immersive as a Fullstack student, and graduate from Fullstack Academy — but specifically having completed the Grace Hopper Track.

Your tuition details will differ from non-Track students, and as a woman at the Fullstack Chicago campus you’ll have access to exclusive mentorship and community-building opportunities. The remaining elements of your Fullstack education—curriculum, instructors, career services—are shared across the entire student body, and are not specific to the Grace Hopper Track at Fullstack Chicago.
