Springboard payment options

Four options to get your course and career change started. All plans include a full refund policy if you're not satisfied within the first 7 days.

Upfront payment

A single, lump sum payment prior to starting your course.

Best value

We offer discounts across all our Career Tracks for upfront payment. If you choose to drop out of the program after the first 7 days, a refund will not be available.

Monthly payments

Total cost of the course is divided into even monthly payments based on the estimated course length (6 or 9 months).

Most Flexible

Course duration estimates are based on students devoting 15-20 hours per week of study. If you can dedicate more time and finish faster, you'll only pay for the months it took you to complete the course.

The job search period does not require any payments.

Deferred tuition

Enroll now, pay later

Pay a small upfront deposit to start your course with no payments until after you start your new job.

You'll then make 36 monthly payments on the remaining tuition (excluding your deposit) plus interest. If you pay it off sooner, there's no pre-payment penalty and you'll pay less.

If you meet all our job search requirements and milestones and still don't land a new job the course will be completely free.

Deferred tuition vs. Income Share Agreements (ISAs)

ISAs take a percentage of your income. You could pay thousands based on your own success. With deferred tuition, you know exactly how much you will be charged.

Financing with Climb

If you'd like to finance your tuition through a loan, you'll first submit a loan application through our partner, Climb Credit. Please note that applying to check your offer will not affect your credit score.

Low monthly payments

If approved by Climb, you'll pay a deposit prior to starting the course followed by monthly interest payments during the course.

Once you graduate, you'll begin to pay the remainder of the loan in monthly installments over 33 or 36 months.

If you choose to pay the loan back faster, there is no pre-payment penalty. If you do not complete the program, we will adjust your loan amount to reflect your time active in the course.
