If you're ready to apply, keep reading.
There are five main questions for you to answer. Be open and honest. Starter School is completely beginner-focused so we don't care about any pre-requisites. Instead, convince us with your passion and persistence.
After you submit your application you will hear from us within a week. If we feel that you could be a potential fit for the program, we will contact you to schedule an in-person or video interview as soon as we can. We may follow up with a second round interview if necessary. The whole process from application to decision will take about three weeks.
Tuition for Starter School is $12,000 per quarter, excluding housing, materials, and personal expenses. A refundable deposit of $3,000 will be required in order to confirm your acceptance. One week before the start of each quarter a payment of $12,000 must be made. For example, the Winter quarter begins on January 6, so a payment of $12,000 would be due no later than December 30.
Currenty we don't offer loans or financial aid. However, we are actively working with loan providers and the government to make Starter School more affordable. In the meantime, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can learn more about your situation.
Our students have creatively raised funds for Starter School in numberous ways. They've sourced online donations, secured company sponsorship, created friends and family loans, and even sold their cars. The students who have given up the most tend to get the most out of the program. They treat it like a serious, life-changing investment— which is exactly what it is.
We are excited to announce a partnership with Upstart, a platform that allows individuals to get financial investment to pursue their dream careers. This partnership allows current students and future Starter School students to raise funding for Starter School tuition.
