14-Weeks, Full-Time, Live Online

Times are listed in Eastern Time Zone, but students join from all over. The below schedule is meant to demonstrate a typical day, but every class is different.

10:00am—1:00pm

Lectures / Assignments

Students often start the day with a combination of live lectures delivered through Zoom, and self-led assignments and exercises designed to ensure the topic being covered is deeply instilled through hands-on learning. There are many different learning styles, and we work hard to craft curriculum that is highly effective for everyone.

2:00pm—5:00pm

Projects / StudioLab

We believe in learning by doing, and simulating the real world work environment as effectively as possible. During StudioLabs, you can expect to use the same tools and processes the pros use, working on real problems that companies face every day. Working alone or in groups, you'll build portfolio-quality assets that you'll be proud to present in your interviews.

Workload

Maximum Effort Required

This program will be the most challenging class you've ever taken, and after a full day of work our students are often charged with completing additional assignments designed to push their abilities as far as possible given such a condensed amount of time. This commitment of time and energy requires a certain level of aptitude and will-power that we do our best to identify in our selective admissions process.

Elective Workshops

Exclusive benefit for Students & Alumni

A career in technology requires a lifetime commitment to learning new strategies, processes, and tools. We hold periodic elective workshops for students and alumni to help provide continuing education opportunities in myriad complementary topics. Every technology professional has heard the interview question, "Do you have experience with _?"

This is our way of filling in the blank.

Additional Course Information

  • What is DigitalCrafts?

    DigitalCrafts is a technology bootcamp and training provider. DigitalCrafts bootcamps are amongst the best-reviewed in the country, and offer intensive live instruction educational experiences for students across the country. DigitalCrafts enterprise solutions include custom training and onboarding programs, as well as software staffing services for companies of all sizes.

  • Can I keep my day job while a student?

    Probably not for full-time classes, which are truly an immersive, Monday through Friday experience. If dedicating 40+ hours per week isn't in the cards, consider our part-time format, which is designed with working professionals in mind.

  • Is prior experience required?

    We describe our bootcamps as "approachable for beginners." While it's not necessary to have studied Design in school, or to have worked as a designer, you will be better-equipped having completed some self-learning prior to class. In addition, you'll be assigned 20-40 hours of prerequisite work that must be completed before class, which will help ensure everyone arrives with at least some familiarity of basic concepts. Make no mistake, this class is going to be difficult. The more you know on day one, the deeper your understanding throughout.

  • How much is tuition?

    Base tuition for the Full-Time program is $14,950. After being accepted, a $250 deposit and (if financing) approval from one of our financing partners is required to secure your seat.

    The remaining tuition may be paid in full before class starts or financed over 3 to 15 years through one of our lending partners (you're welcome to use your own if you'd like).

    Discounts: If you apply, are accepted, and submit your $250 deposit to secure your seat within 5 business days of receiving your acceptance letter, we will take $250 off tuition. If you enroll before the early enrollment deadline listed on our schedule, you'll receive an additional $250 off tuition. Mote: Scholarship recipients are not eligble for any additional discounts.

    More on tuition, financing, and scholarships.

  • Is financing available?

    Yes! We’ve partnered with Sallie Mae and Skills Fund to provide affordable financing options for our students. Reach out to learn more, you can give us a holler at hello@digitalcrafts.com or (833) 327 - 2387.

    There are also plenty of options outside of our partnerships, such as WeFinance, Upstart, GoFundVeterans, SoFi, or asking your employer to help fund your education. It never looks bad to ask for more training, and you might just be surprised by what you hear!

    Please note: if you are accepted and intend to finance your tuition through one of our financing partners, you will need to be approved as a borrower to officially secure your seat in class.

  • What about scholarships?

    Part of our mission as a school is to make a career in software as accessible as possible to the underrepresented and the highly gifted.

    As such, we're proud to offer automatic partial scholarships for all underrepresented people in tech, including Black, Latinx, and Women students. We also sponsor The Builder Scholarship, awarded by committee to builders with especially compelling stories, achievements, and goals. More on tuition and scholarship awards.

  • How many students are in a class?

    Our average class size is currently 17-18 students. Your cohort may have more or less, as there is some seasonality in enrollment, but we always maintain an efficient and effective classroom environment.

  • Is career support provided?

    All students receive the same level of career support, which includes portfolio guidance, mock interviews, and exposure to our ever-growing list of employer partners. In addition, our dedicated Student Services Team is available to provide detailed feedback on everything from cover letters and resumes, to projects, portfolios, and emails to employers. We can't nail the interview for you, but we'll do what we can to help along the way.

  • How is DigitalCrafts different from other programs?

    A successful entrepreneur once told our founders that "succeeding in business is simple. Do what you say you're going to do, and treat every customer like they're your first and last. If you say you're going to perform a service for somebody, do it well - most people won't."

    We believe the above state of mind, a firm belief in honesty and transparency, and the hard work of our instructors and staff is what has set us apart. It doesn't hurt that our instructors are the best, our class sizes are smaller, and the cost per hour of instruction is well below our competitors.

    In addition, because DigitalCrafts also provides staffing services to corporate clients, we remain a valuable resource for our alumni throughout their careers. We want to help our students find their 1st job, and every job after that.

    Our alumni reviews tell it better than we can.

  • How can I ask more questions?

    Reach out anytime, our team is here to help. You can schedule a call, send us an email , or just give us a ring: (833) 327 - 2387. We look forward to meeting you.
