How our financing works

When you apply for a Flatiron School tuition loan, you can add up to an additional $7,500 for cost of living expenses to that loan. Cost of living financing is available for in-person bootcamps only, and you'll need to borrow at least $2,000 in tuition financing in order to add living expense financing.

Once you start your program, your tuition will be sent directly to your school and your living expense funds will be sent directly to you. About one month after you start your program, you’ll start repaying your loan.
