“To have flexibility to do classes in the evening, and complete these projects as needed, was a make-or-break deal for me. Without that flexibility, I wouldn’t have been able to do the program.”

Our Flexible Tuition Options

We provide a direct path to a high-paying career, with less risk. We designed our tuition options to ensure more people can access the education needed to launch a career in tech.

Not sure which tuition option is right for you? Chat with our Enrollment Coaches to learn more.

Outcomes Based
Loan


Our most popular tuition option requires zero tuition up front and is covered by the 110% Tuition Refund Guarantee. If you follow the BloomTech job search program and don't get job offers paying at least $50,000 a year within a year of graduation, we’ll refund your full tuition plus an additional 10%.

How it works

Upfront Tuition


You can pay the tuition up front in a single payment or in 3 installments. The total cost of tuition is $21,950 for all states or $15,000 for international residents. U.S. learners who pay up front and follow the BloomTech job search program, and don't get job offers paying at least $50,000 a year within a year of graduation, are eligible for a full tuition refund plus an additional 10%.

How it works

Income Share Agreement


Pay your full tuition later. You agree to pay 14% of your post-BloomTech salary for 4 years after you begin earning at least $50,000 per year (or $4,166 per month). And if you don't get hired? You never pay more than your down payment. This option requires $2,950 down payment at enrollment. This payment option is not available to California residents.

Data Science Admissions Process

Below you'll find everything you need to know about the application process.

Step 1: Complete an application

First, register by entering your name and email address (be sure it's an account you check regularly) and choosing a password. You'll use these credentials to access your class materials once you’re enrolled, so please choose a strong password that you'll remember.

Once registration is complete, sign in with your new credentials to start your BloomTech application. Read and agree to the BloomTech Privacy Policy, which tells us that you understand how we might use your information and how we protect your data.

Next, fill in your personal information, choose which program you want to enroll in and when you want to start, and tell us about your background. Not sure which BloomTech program is right for you? Take this short quiz to get matched to a course that fits your experience and goals.

Step 2: Pass the entrance test

Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT)
Now we'll ask you to complete a brief assessment called the Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT), which helps us predict your ability to succeed at BloomTech and in your future career.

The CCAT consists of 50 questions, and you will have 15 minutes to complete the test. It's normal to not finish all 50 questions in the time allotted, so find a quiet place to work before you begin, take a deep breath, and do your best. You can find a free CCAT study guide here.

Verify Your Education
If you live in Texas or Washington DC, we'll need to verify your educational background with one of the following documents:

1. College Transcripts
2. High School Diploma
3. GED Certificate

Alternatively, you can take the Wonderlic basic skills test. More information about ATB tests can be found here.

Step 3: Access learner-only content and events

Congratulations on being admitted to BloomTech! We’re thrilled to have you as part of the first group of learners to benefit from our game-changing CareerFlow experience, launching in July. Until then, you’ll have access to:

  • Exclusive community events, such as career panels and meet & greets
  • Live Code-Alongs with BloomTech instructors
  • 1:1 support with enrollment and learner success coaches

We’ll be rolling out new community events and instructor-led sessions until CareerFlow officially opens in July, so keep an eye out for email announcements. We strongly encourage you to register for these optional live events to learn more about our school and begin building your BloomTech network. That way, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running once CareerFlow goes live.

Step 4: Start your Risk-Free Trial once CareerFlow launches

In July, CareerFlow—the better-than-ever experience throughout your program—will go live! At that point, you will have the opportunity to preview the real CareerFlow learner experience with no financial commitment via our 3-week Risk-Free Trial. Your Risk-Free Trial includes access to:

  • Our Orientation course
  • A Skills Assessment with personalized recommendations to strengthen your skills
  • Live events and Code Alongs
  • Systems and tools you’ll use as a BloomTech learner
  • 1:1 support with enrollment coaches, learner success coaches, and learning assistants
  • Access to 2 sprints of course curriculum (must sign an Enrollment Agreement to unlock)

Our Orientation course is self-paced and will give you a preview of life as a learner at BloomTech. You’ll gain effective strategies for remote learning, be briefed on our academic expectations, learn how to use the software and tools needed for your program, and understand how to get help whenever you need it.

Step 5: Sign your Enrollment Agreement and start classes

Now that you’ve gotten a preview of life as a BloomTech learner, it’s time to sign your Enrollment Agreement. Before signing, we encourage you to review our tuition options. You can also read through the BloomTech Catalog (your state-specific catalog was sent in an email) to make sure you understand and are willing to adhere to our policies, and to learn more about BloomTech’s style, structure, and approach to teaching the skills needed for the tech industry.

Once you’ve signed your Enrollment Agreement and completed Orientation, you’ll unlock access to the first 2 sprints of curriculum in your chosen program while engaging with instructors, career experts, and coaches dedicated to your personal success. This is part of your 3-week Risk-Free Trial.

Step 6: Finalize your tuition payment

It’s time to secure your spot as a BloomTech learner and accelerate your path to a career in tech! The last step in the process is finalizing your tuition payment, which must be completed (meaning all applicable payments have successfully been processed) within 3 weeks of starting your Risk-Free Trial.

If you elected to pay $0 upfront and apply for an Outcomes Based Loan (OBL), or selected an Income Share Agreement (ISA), you’ll be directed to one of BloomTech’s financing partners to sign the appropriate contract. If you selected our upfront payment option, you'll receive an invoice via email.

Congratulations—you’re on your way to a fulfilling career in tech!
