Can I defer payments for my Ascent bootcamp loan?
Yes! Ascent offers two deferred options for bootcamp loans to help you focus on your education and job search. To see if these options are available for your school and program, visit your school’s Ascent partnership page.
- Deferred Repayment: You’ll make no payments while you’re in school and for three months after. Then you’ll start making full payments (interest + principal). This option is available at most of our bootcamp partner schools.
- Outcomes Loans or Deferred Tuition Loans (only available at Thinkful, Springboard, and Bloomtech): If you meet the eligibility requirements, you’ll make no payments for up to a year after you complete your program, or when you receive a qualifying job offer as determined by the Thinkful Tuition Refund Guarantee, Springboard Job Guarantee, or Bloomtech Tuition Refund Guarantee. Then you’ll start making full payments (interest + principal). This option is only available for programs at Thinkful, Springboard, and Bloomtech (additional terms apply).
- Zero Percent Loan: You’ll make no payments for at least three months after you exit your program. Then you’ll start making full monthly payments. If you do not find a qualifying job as determined by your school, you can request to defer repayment. This is only available for programs at certain schools (additional terms apply).
