We require all students to be on a MacBook capable of running the most recent operating system and with at least 4 GB of RAM for our web development program and 8 GB of RAM for our data science program. This is not something you need for the admissions process but you would be responsible for it on the first day of class. You do not need to buy any books or software though! Our custom curriculum is all online. The other cost to consider is transportation. Most students buy monthly passes to nearby garages.
