Ascent Funding is an award-winning lender and student success company committed to revolutionizing how you access higher education at colleges and coding bootcamps. Ascent empowers students from all economic backgrounds and disciplines (including DACA students) to maximize the return on their education with resources such as our Bright Futures Engine, Bootcamp Finder, and financial wellness tips. To set students up for success, we offer scholarships (over $80,000 this year) and exclusive benefits for students.
We strive to partner with quality schools because we believe they can deliver a valuable return on education to students. We start by asking schools (bootcamps) questions about their curriculum, student outcomes like graduation rates, employment rates and average salaries for graduates and keep in touch with schools and our students to see how they are performing.
Here are the most common bootcamp payment options:
*Not an available option through Ascent.
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 allows you to take out a loan and not pay anything until you’ve graduated from your program. This grace period may last up to 3 months post-graduation. Keep in mind that interest does typically continue to 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.
