Ready to launch your career?

Springboard is on a mission to change lives by helping people find fulfilling, high-paying jobs. Many of our more than 7,000 graduates have broken out of their socioeconomic class, defying the odds to succeed in the technology sector.

We know our programs work. In fact, we’re so confident in our combination of expert-designed curricula, one-on-one mentorship, and career services that we offer job guarantees for most of our career track courses, meaning that if you don’t get a job after graduating, we’ll refund your tuition. We succeed when you succeed.

Today, we’re taking our commitment to accessible education and career transformation one step further by partnering with Affirm, a leading financial technology company, to offer affordable loans to students interested in our UX design and digital marketing courses.

If you’ve considered pursuing a career in these high-growth industries, you can do so now by enrolling in our proven programs for a low monthly rate (starting at $49 a month).

Affirm loans are available for:

How Does Affirm Work?

Affirm was founded (by Paypal co-founder Max Levchin) with a goal to create honest financial services that empower consumers and improve lives.

As a Springboard student, you’ll get a loan approval decision in real-time. And checking your eligibility won’t affect your credit score.

Once approved, you’ll select a repayment term of 6, 12, or 18 monthly installments with as little as 0% APR, and be shown the exact amount you’ll owe each month, with interest displayed in simple dollars rather than as a percentage you’ll need to calculate yourself. There are no hidden fees or surprises.

You’ll receive automatic email and/or SMS reminders before each installment is due. But even if life gets in the way, there are no late fees.

We’re working hard to help as many people as possible access high-quality, affordable education. By lowering one of the biggest barriers to entry—upfront tuition costs—we hope to equip even more learners with the skills they need to find a creatively and financially fulfilling job.

If you’re ready to transform your life, enroll in our digital marketing and UX design courses with Affirm now.
