Pay as You Go
In our budget-friendly program, we divide tuition into four stages. You'll pay smaller fees one badge at a time, with the option to pause the program between badges. You can earn the next badge – and develop your next set of skills – when you’re ready.
Earn Discounts Along the Way
For each badge you earn, we provide a discount for your next badge. For example, after you earn a Server-Side Web Development badge, you will qualify for $500 off a Full-Stack Development badge. Discounts total up to $1,000 as you pursue all four badges.

Financial Aid Award Opportunities
The $2,000 award is available to University of Northern Colorado graduates, current students and employees. To qualify for the award, alumni will need to be validated as having completed an academic certificate, endorsement, licensure or degree at UNC. Current students, faculty and staff will need to provide a valid Bear number or email from a current "@unco.edu" email address.
Women Who Code Award
This $2,000 award is available to female enrollees. Female students qualify based on self-identification.
Veterans Who Code Award
This $2,000 award is available to eligible military personnel in the following groups: reservists, veterans, and/or active-duty service members. To qualify for the award, students must present proof of eligibility (military original statement of service, or certificate of release or discharge).
Terms and conditions: Awards may not be combined. To be granted award funds, recipients must successfully complete the admissions process, be admitted into the fully online coding bootcamp program and begin the first course prior to December 31, 2020. Students must also be in good standing, as defined by The Software Guild and University of Northern Colorado Extended Campus. These awards are available to UNC Coding Bootcamp Students from The Software Guild. They are not funded or managed by the UNC Office of Financial Aid.
Awards will be evenly distributed across all four badge courses, with $500 awarded at the beginning of each badge course to directly reduce the cost of tuition for that course. The student must successfully complete all requirements of each badge before being granted an award for the next course. Awards will be applied as a reduction to the total course fee and will reduce the payment required.
