Code Fellows
Student Success Stories

567 Grads and Counting

Our program is a partnership. We bring advanced curriculum, instructors, and a high-quality learning environment, and our students bring passion, innovation, and a strong desire to succeed.

Whether students start in Code 101 or jump straight into Code 401, we work with them throughout their time on campus to make sure that they are on a clear path to achieve their goals. With the hundreds of students who have successfully completed our most advanced program, we've seen almost every background imaginable: education, fine arts, healthcare, IT, social sciences, physical sciences, and everything in between. The diverse backgrounds and successful placements of our students confirms what we've believed all along: with the right training, environment, drive, and hard work, anyone can learn to code.

We are committed to helping our students get the training and assistance they need during and after their time at Code Fellows. While we've since removed the Job-Offer Guarantee—which offered a guarantee that we would refund a student's tuition if they didn't receive a job offer in their field—because of industry regulations in different states, we still have the same level of commitment to our students' success.

The Job Search

Once students successfully complete their last whiteboard interview and submit their final projects, the job search begins! Some students attend industry events and build their network during their time in Code 401, while others choose to start networking and applying for jobs after they graduate.

Over half of our students receive job offers within 12 weeks of graduating from Code 401, and many more receive job offers within three to six months. By month nine, 95% of our students are successfully working in the tech industry.

Each graduate approaches their job search a little differently, and we're here to help them maximize their efforts. Our team works hard to help prepare our grads for technical and non-technical interviews, and every week, we hear stories of grads landing jobs that they love.
