Program Structure

Programming is like a trade – practice is the most important thing. Coding Dojo’s structure only involves 3 hours of instructor-led class time each day. After lunch, study if self-guided, meaning that the program only totals to 210 instructor-led hours. Codeup is full-time and gives you 670 hours of live instruction.

Tuition Options

Codeup partners with 7 financial aid providers, including 3 grant partners, 3 loan partners, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We also offer nearly $200k across 8 different scholarships annually. Coding Dojo only offers 2 loan partnerships. When it comes to investing in your tuition, we’ve got your bases covered.


While we teach 7 primary technologies over 6 months, Coding Dojo teaches over 22 in less than 4 months. That means they promise to teach 300% more technologies in 69% less time. This translates to a focus on breadth over depth, making it hard to thoroughly grasp a technology. Do you want to be a jack of all trades or a master of few?
