Are Codeup’s programs in-person or remote?

Right now, classes are virtual. Starting August 9th, 2021, students will begin returning to campus in a limited capacity. We plan for a full campus return on January 3rd, 2022, when all students and staff will join us in person. Students will have the option to stay remote until then.

Will I start my program remotely?

If your start date is prior to December 31, 2021, you will have a remote start. If your start date is after January 3rd, you will start in-person on campus.

Why should I go to Codeup instead of a bootcamp or university?

Your success is our priority, our people are our focus, and our mission is to empower your life change. Here’s a combination of things you won’t find elsewhere:

1. Your application process is rigorous and highly personalized. We really get to know you so we can be sure it’s a mutual fit.
2. Our instructors are the best. Not only do they have industry experience, but students rave about the thought and care they pour into students.
3. Our job isn’t done until you have yours. You’ll get personalized career coaching, and a whole team helping you to find a job, even after graduation.
4. We’re personally invested in you! If you don’t get hired within 6 months of graduating, that means we didn’t do our part, so we will refund your tuition.

What is the value of a Codeup education?

The value of Codeup includes gaining the technical knowledge and skillset of a web developer or data scientist, expert instruction, hands-on curriculum with a portfolio to show employers, a close family of your Codeup classmates, a network of technology professionals to connect with, career preparation, continuing job search support even after you graduate, and the peace of mind that if you don’t get hired within 6 months of graduating, you’ll get your tuition back (codeup.com/refund). We also offer a great Return on Investment, one of the best you’ll find.

Do you offer any programs for children or teenagers?

We do not. We are a career accelerator looking to help adults transition into careers in tech. To enroll, students must be at least 17 years old. Our average student age is around 30 years old. However, we definitely encourage kids and teens to start exploring tech early!  We’re active partners with Youth Code Jam in San Antonio, and there are many other great organizations that are dedicated to helping kids learn technical skills.

How should I decide which program is right for me (Web Development vs. Data Science)?

Web Development and Data Science are both in-demand fields, but they’re very different! If you’re considering coming to Codeup, we recommend you think about these two questions:

1) What is your technical background? Our web development program doesn’t require any background, and has a faster ramp-up to admission. Data Science requires introductory experience in math, stats, and programming.
2) What do you want to be working on daily? While some parts of the jobs will overlap, like writing in a programming language, most everything else is different. Web development will train you to build websites and applications, while Data Science will train you to draw insights from data sets.
