What is Ascent’s Bootcamp Finder?

Ascent’s Bootcamp Finder is a free beta tool to help students research schools and programs to determine which one may be the best fit for you. This tool allows you to match with your top schools based on your interests, preferred learning style, the pace of the program, location, and more. We help you evaluate these schools so you’re set up for success from the very start.

How does Ascent source the schools and data in the Bootcamp Finder?

  • We know choosing to attend a bootcamp is a time-consuming process, so we built this tool to simplify it. Our team collected information that’s important to your decision straight from the schools and combined that data all in one place. Ascent leverages several proprietary and public data sources to help you find the right bootcamp. We provide this information as a service to help support your bootcamp search process but school & program information frequently changes so we do not guarantee the accuracy of the data on this page; please confirm all information with your intended school or program. 
  • Please be aware that the “Visit Bootcamp” links within the bootcamp partner results link to external sites, and Ascent is not responsible for links to third-party websites. The security and privacy policies on our partner’s site may differ from Ascent Funding’s. 
  • While not every school included in this bootcamp finder is affiliated with Ascent, Ascent offers loans to attend some of the schools and programs included on this website. All Ascent partner schools go through a vetting process where schools are required to submit an application for partnership. While not every bootcamp is right for every student, we believe in the power of bootcamps to help career-changers to transform their careers. If you do not see a school listed on the site or if you note information that needs to be updated, please get in touch with us at [email protected]

What determines the order of the schools listed?

There are multiple variables that affect the list order of the schools. If you have entered a zip code, proximity is the primary determinant of the order of the schools. If you have not entered a zip code, the order is determined by a proprietary combination of school size, outcomes quality, and the comprehensiveness of the school and program data. Our team strives to present a range of options so you can find the best school and program for you.

Who can use Ascent’s Bootcamp Finder tool?

Ascent’s Bootcamp Finder is for students and professionals looking to make a career change or explore options to grow their careers. This tool was designed to help you navigate the world of career pathways by making the bootcamp selection process easier and faster.

I have my list of top schools…now what?

You’re one step closer to reaching your goals. Once you’ve narrowed your search down to your top schools, it’s time to contact those schools, ask questions, and apply. Visit your top schools online and complete their applications. Be sure to reach out to their admissions office if you have any questions along the way.

What questions should I ask my bootcamp?

After finding your top schools using Ascent’s Bootcamp Finder, we recommend contacting the schools you’re interested in. Speaking with an admissions representative is one of the best ways to get to know your bootcamp even more. You might ask questions like: 

  • Is your program more geared towards beginners or advanced students?
  • How large is your alumni network?
  • Have other students found a job after graduation?

How can I cover the cost of my bootcamp?

Here are the most common bootcamp payment options:

  • Loan Financing* – A loan involves getting money upfront to cover your program costs and then paying it back over time plus accrued interest. It typically covers the program’s tuition and sometimes your cost of living as well. 
  • Deferred Tuition – Deferment typically allows you to not pay anything until you’ve graduated from your program. Depending on your school or program’s specific deferred tuition agreement, your grace period could last a few months to over a year post-graduation. Keep in mind that interest might accrue during this time.
  • Payment Upfront – This option entails paying your full tuition amount upfront. Some schools may give a tuition discount for this payment option.
  • Payment Plans – This option allows you to break up your tuition amount into smaller monthly payments, typically over 12 months. There may be a service fee to choose this option.
  • Income Share Agreements – Also known as ISAs, this option allows you to postpone tuition payments until you have started a job paying over the minimum salary amount set by your school, often $40,000-$60,000. Once in repayment, you will pay a certain percentage of your salary until you hit the repayment cap, typically 1-2 times the initial tuition amount. The benefit of an ISA is that if your salary drops below the income threshold or if you are unemployed, your payments pause.
  • Scholarships*Many bootcamps and organizations award scholarships to students that do not need to be paid back. Ascent’s scholarship giveaways may help cover the cost of your school-related expenses – including tuition, books, rent, groceries, parking and transportation, and more, as well as other monthly bills and purchases.

Yes, Ascent’s bootcamp loans are consumer loans for students who are interested in transforming their career at a bootcamp or accelerated-learning program.

It’s important to note this distinction as early as possible so you can plan accordingly.
