How The Deferred Tuition Model Works

We're Invested in Your Success

We're focused on allowing you to learn new skills and land a job first and foremost. Start paying tuition only once you've secured a role earning at least $60,000 per year.

Tuition Payment Cap

Total tuition possible is capped at a maximum of $31,500. Alternatively, you may opt to pay a tuition of $21,000 up-front.

Payment Periods

After you’ve reached the minimum income threshold of $60,000, you’ll start paying back 17% percent of your monthly earned income over 24 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

You'll pay a percentage of your gross salary (before taxes).

The minimum income threshold is $60,000. If your income falls below $60,000, your payments will pause. Your payments will resume when your income increases above the threshold.

It depends. The tuition is tied to your income, so how much you pay will vary based on how much you're earning. Because the tuition is capped, the maximum you will ever pay is $31,500 or 1.5 times the tuition.

Monthly payments are calculated by applying your income share to your total monthly earned income. You will receive a monthly bill for this amount, and you can make your payments online, over the phone, or via mail.
