Before you begin, please read these important notes:
While in the application, please note:
We’ve worked closely with Dev Bootcamp to provide students - of all backgrounds and walks of life - access to competitive financing. As long as you meet the basic underwriting criteria - such as you are a US citizen / permanent resident, with no recent bankruptcies nor history of default on a public or private loan, you'll most likely qualify for a Skills Fund loan.
The maximum amount you can borrow will depend on your city of attendance. You can finance your tuition (minus deposit).
*Please note San Diego's deposit amount
The deferment period is defined as the time you are attending the course, plus an additional two months after completion. These additional two months are considered your repayment grace period.
Interest-only or deferred payments are required during the deferment period. After the deferment period ends, payments of principal and interest are required.
For a 36-month $10,000 loan, the interest-only monthly payment is approximately $51. For a 60-month $10,000 loan, the interest-only monthly payment is approximately $68.
If you do not meet the loan underwriting criteria, a cosigner will be needed. You can (1) apply individually, and should you not be approved, you can reapply with a cosigner, or (2) initiate your loan process with a cosigner.
Please note: we advise you to apply individually to begin, and should you not be credit approved, you may be given the opportunity to amend your application with a cosigner.
During the loan application process, we will ask you for the following information:
Yes, we will check your credit, including your credit score.
You will be charged an origination fee of 3.0%. This amount will be added to the amount of tuition you borrow, and included in the total loan principal amount you finance. This fee helps cover the administrative fees associated with originating the loan and charged by our partner bank. Please see terms in "More Info on Terms" above.
Please note: this fee is already reflected in the general APR outlined above and in the loan calculator.

Shortly after completing your loan application, you will receive provisional credit approval details via email and a confirmation window in the application. If you are credit approved, your loan will then be certified by Dev Bootcamp. If you are not credit approved, you may be given the opportunity to amend your application with a cosigner.
For interest-only loans: You will begin making interest-only payments one month into program and continue through two months following graduation.
For deferred-type loans: You will fully defer payment until two months after graduation.
For both loan types, you will start making full monthly payments (interest plus principal) after your two-month post-graduation repayment grace period ends. This 60-day grace period helps you to keep your eye on finding the right job following program completion.
Upon loan acceptance, we will provide you with several options for making payments, including automated payments. You may create an account at www.studentloan.org at any time to manage payments and account balance.
Yes, you can pre-pay your loan at any time without penalty.
Regarding your tuition: You are responsible for the full amount you borrow, plus accrued interest and fees. If you are owed a refund by Dev Bootcamp, the refund transaction will be made to Skills Fund in the amount of the refund due (but in no event greater than what that we paid to Dev Bootcamp on your behalf). If there is a balance on your loan after any applied refund, you will be required to immediately start making monthly payments for the balance.
