Over the last 4 years, the Iron Yard has led the code school industry in preparing students for careers as software developers. The industry as a whole is still young and its leaders face the challenge of a nascent market, as well as the demands facing all institutions in the higher education marketplace.
In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support.
While our journey is coming to an end, we will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to learn to code and launch a successful programming career through our Web Development Career Path. Below is an overview of the financing options available to you.
Of course, you are free to obtain a loan from any lender. Loans must be repaid with interest, and taking out a loan is a big decision, so consider it carefully. If you choose to pursue financing, we encourage you to explore all your options fully before working with any particular lender.
Each financing option requires a $1000 deposit to reserve your spot.
Climb Credit has developed specific programs for students at The Iron Yard who are interested in financing. Students will receive information once enrolled in an upcoming course.
Climb Credit is not available in Nevada.
Through our financing partner Climb Credit, students will be able to finance up to $3,500 of living expenses incurred while they're taking a course, giving them the freedom to focus their full attention on becoming a professional software developer. (This includes all campuses except for those in Nevada.)
Removing the cost-of-living barrier is a major step forward in helping even more people launch careers in programming.
The Iron Yard (TIY) has entered into, and from time to time may enter into, agreements with various lenders to assist students attending boot camp programs at TIY. Some of these agreements contain “risk share” arrangements under which TIY has agreed to defer receipt of funds or to be responsible for a portion of the loan amount in the event a student defaults. The risk share amounts may vary up to 30 percent of your tuition related loan amount. TIY receives no direct material benefits from such agreements. In accordance with these risk share arrangements, TIY receives the deferred amounts during your loan’s repayment period based upon your repayment of the loan. These risk share arrangement do not affect your tuition account with TIY, nor does TIY determine the terms and conditions of your loans, including with those lenders with whom we have risk share arrangements. Moreover, the agreements entered into with the various lenders are non-exclusive and TIY does not recommend or endorse any particular lender. It is your decision to select the lender for any loan you may take, which may include a lender with which TIY does not have an agreement. Lenders are required to provide you information about the terms and conditions of your loan as part of the loan application process, and you should study this information carefully. Please contact your lender of choice for information about the terms and conditions of your loan.
You are free to obtain a loan from any lender to finance your tuition to The Iron Yard. Once you've applied to our program, ask your local Campus Director about pursuing these financing options during the interview process to get details. While these loan programs may be available to you, there is no agreement in place between The Iron Yard and these organizations.
