Springboard really works hard to be a curriculum that you can integrate into your life as you’re a full-time employee or doing something else on the side and I really appreciated that. I felt like I could do my job—you know, pay my bills—and at the same time be moving toward a longer-term goal—and that was really important to me.

The biggest highlight of the Springboard course was definitely the mentorship. I still to this day have no idea how they paired me with someone that I get along really well with. My mentor Sadok did a great job… by guiding me in the right direction, but not always providing the straightforward answer.

I liked having the support of an online community where you could ask questions and you could see everyone else’s work—I thought that was really helpful. I felt like I had a great support system because if I were doing it just on my own without a mentor... I don’t think I would have been as successful as I was.

Frequently Asked Questions

This course is for people who want to get a job in UX Design. We require candiates to have academic or professional experience in user design or development oriented fields. Examples include:

  • Graphic / Visual / UI Design
  • Psychology
  • Research
  • Web development

The challenge is all free-form answer and is designed to assess your ability to: (a) Empathize with users; (b) Generate ideas; (c) Justify your design decisions.

We’re not looking for perfect answers — you’re not a UX Design pro yet! Rather, we want to get a better sense of how you approach a problem scenario and the creative ways you propose to solve it.

The challenge is not a timed test but, for reference, most students take less than 60 minutes to complete it.

This challenge will allow us — and you — to assess your readiness for the course. If you find the test 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 challenge.

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 $1199 per month, only for the month's you're enrolled (most students complete within 6 months).
  • Upfront payment: You pay $5,900 upfront for 6 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 $500 deposit upon enrollment to confirm your seat (that's a discount on the normal $1,190/mo plan). Then, you’ll pay the remaining tuition ($7,680) only when you land a job using your newly learned skills. You can pay that final balance in 12 monthly installments of $640. 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 $6,694 through a loan. You’ll make small interest-only payments for the first 6 months. After that, you will pay 36 monthly payments of $217-240 each. Learn more here
