The Immersive Program is an intense and highly selective program where you join a cohort of other students to learn the craft of modern software engineering during 12 of the hardest -- and most rewarding -- weeks of your life.
Unlike other online programs, in our Immersive Program you work directly with a cohort of other students and instructors for 70+ hours per week, just like you would as part of a real software engineering team so you can graduate and confidently get hired to continue building great software.
Job support is baked into the curriculum from the day you enroll but, as an Immersive student, you also get access to constant support and whatever else it takes to get you into a developer's seat, both before the program begins and long after your graduation.
We make your job search a daily part of the course and its intensity steadily increases as we get closer to the finish. We have a handful of students in every cohort typically receive and sign their offers prior to completing the program.
The Immersive Program is focused on "directly supported learning", meaning that an instructor is typically just a few minutes away from providing 1-on-1 realtime help. Here's how the support levels of other programs compare by hours of directly supported learning.

We've designed this program from the start to be as accessible as possible. For students who qualify for our Deferred Fee plan, the placement fee can be paid as a percentage of your first year's salary. For students who do not qualify or who would prefer not to seek qualifying work after the program, the fee can be paid as a fixed amount up front instead.
In order to guarantee your spot in the program, we also require a $2,000 non-refundable deposit. This is applied towards your fee payment or may be returned to you under the terms of the job guarantee.
To learn more about how to qualify for the fee deferral, see our Immersive FAQ.
We run 3 cohorts of the Immersive program each year and space is limited. Applications typically close 2 months prior to the beginning of a cohort but spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and so cohorts generally fill up sooner.

Because of its intensity and duration, this program is not the right fit for every student. It is extremely selective and we typically admit fewer than 3% of applicants. You can learn more about what we're looking for on our Immersive FAQ.
