Frequently Asked Questions

This course is for people who want to get a job in UI/UX Design.

We require candidates to have strong visual, creativity, and communication skills. The application process for the UI/UX Design Career Track is designed to evaluate a baseline visual aptitude, analytical skills, and the ability to empathize with users to synthesize and generate ideas.

Still not sure? Email Fabiola, our Admissions Manager, at IXCinquiry@springboard.com or book a call with her here. She’s happy to help you think through the decision.

The skills survey is a basic assessment to make sure you'll have a successful experience in the course.

What can you expect?
The technical skills survey is a combination of multiple choice and free-form questions, and is designed to evaluate your (a) visual aptitude; (b) ability to empathize with users and synthesize information; (c) justify design decisions.

We’re not looking for perfect answers — you’re not a UI/UX Design pro yet! Rather, we want to get a better sense of your instincts in each area.

The skills survey is not a timed test but, for reference, most students take less than 45 minutes to complete it.

This skills survey will allow us — and you — to assess your readiness for the course. If you find the survey difficult and are not able to successfully answer a majority of the questions in each section, don’t worry! We have great options for you, and can advise you on best next steps after you’ve submitted the assessment.

There are 4 payment options (all of which come with our job guarantee as long as you meet eligibility requirements). Our two standard payment plans are:

  • Monthly Plan:You pay $1099 per month, only for the month's you're enrolled (most students complete within 6 months).
  • Upfront payment:You pay $8,200 upfront for 9 months. This is a 18% discount on the monthly plan.

In addition, we have 2 other payment options. These are available by application to qualifying US citizens and permanent residents. If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, you can still apply for financing with a fully qualifying co-borrower who is a citizen or permanent resident - as long as you both have a US address.

  • Deferred Tuition: You pay a $700 deposit upon enrollment to confirm your seat (that's a discount on the normal $1,099/mo plan). Then, you’ll pay the remaining tuition ($10,500) only when you land a job using your newly learned skills. You can pay that final balance in 12 monthly installments of $875. The remaining tuition will be waived if you don’t get a job, and maintain eligibility, within six months of graduating!
  • Climb Credit loan: Available by application to qualifying US citizens and permanent residents. If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, you can still apply for financing with a fully qualifying co-borrower who is a citizen or permanent resident - as long as you both have a US address.
    • If approved, you pay $500 deposit to confirm your seat. You can finance the remaining $9,391 through a loan. You’ll make small interest-only payments for the first 9 months. After that, you will pay 33 monthly payments of $329 - $362 each. Learn more here

This UI/UX bootcamp is for people who demonstrate strong visual, creativity, and communication skills.

Prerequisites:All backgrounds are welcome as long as you can demonstrate strong visual, creativity, and communication skills (which are critical on a cross-functional design team).

Application Process:
We are invested in helping you reach your career goals. Part of that commitment is making sure you know where to start, and which course is best to get you there. The application process for the UI/UX Career Track is designed to evaluate a baseline of visual skills, analytical thinking, and the ability to empathize with users to synthesize and generate ideas. We're not looking for perfect answers - you're not a UI/UX design pro yet! We want to get a better sense of your instincts in each area.

Students must also demonstrate English fluency, as determined by initial interactions with the Admissions team.

Is a bachelor's degree required?
We recommend candidates have a bachelor’s degree or higher (in any subject). If you don’t have a degree, you are welcome to apply with the understanding that not having a degree may be a barrier to landing certain roles.

Degree level doesn't impact your admission into the program. All enrolled students, regardless of degree level, receive comprehensive 1:1 support and individualized career coaching. We've got your back.

Still not sure if you’re a right fit? Contact our Admissions Managers at IXCInquiry@springboard.com. We’d love to discuss your background and learning goals!
