APPLICATION PROCESS

Step 1: The Application
If you’re ready to submit your application for a course, simply send a message via the website and include:

  • Name of the course you want to apply for
  • Start and end dates
  • Track (Daytime or Nights & Weekends)

Code Fellows will respond with a link for you to set up a phone call with an Admissions Advisor. This link will include a few questions to help get a better understanding of your experience and goals. Once you hit submit, your phone call will be booked with the Admissions Advisor who will call you at your preferred time and date.

Step 2: The Phone Interview
The initial phone interview is a 15-30 minute conversation where you can learn more about the courses we offer.

For the phone interview, be prepared to discuss:

  • Your background
  • Any previous experience with coding (including online tutorials)
  • Why you are interested in Code Fellows
  • What you hope to get out of the experience
  • Your long term goals

Step 3: Pre-work and The Entrance Test
If you’re applying to a 201 course, you’ll have the option to either test-in to 201 or join us for a 102 prep course in a structured classroom setting.

Regardless of which method you choose, both will conclude with an entrance test designed to test for comprehension. During your phone interview your Admissions Advisor will discuss all relevant timelines as it pertains to your entrance test due date.

This is the end of the 201 application process. If you are applying to a 301 course you will need to either pass the entrance exam for this course or successfully complete the 201 course that precedes this course.

Step 4: The Final Interview
If you are testing directly into a 401 course, the final step is a technical interview. At this point, you’ll get a chance to explain the code you submitted. You may also be quizzed on the stack you’re applying to and your skillset to make sure that you’re ready for the intensity and advanced level of the course ahead.
