Why Choose the Part-Time Software Engineering Bootcamp?
Comprehensive learning outcomes. Unlike other part-time offerings, Fullstack Academy part-time coding bootcamps are designed with the same curriculum concepts, web development projects, career support, and outcomes as our full-time programs. That means you don’t have to sacrifice valuable instruction in favor of a part-time schedule—you can have both!
Weekday evening classes. Part-time coding bootcamp classes are held on weekday evenings only (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:30pm - 9:30pm ET), so you can maintain your job and other responsibilities during business hours throughout your career training journey.
Steady instructional pace. While still rigorous and fast-paced, our part-time coding curriculum structure aims to provide a consistent workload week over week.
Bootcamp-work-life balance. Our set weekly schedule, online help desk, and sophisticated Learning Management System combine to help you manage the part-time coding bootcamp on top of your existing, day-to-day work schedule and other life commitments.
Tuition and Dates
Students need to make an initial deposit at enrollment, then pay the remaining balance due on the first day of the cohort.
Fullstack Academy is committed to making tech education more accessible, so we’re reducing the enrollment deposit to $99* (normally $2,000) for a limited time. Get started on your journey before the deposit increases!

*Offer eligibility: Upon admittance into the program, pay the $99 deposit in full prior to the enrollment date.
Learn more about each of these ways to invest in your bootcamp education.
Build a Portfolio of Apps
By the time you graduate from the Software Engineering Bootcamp, you’ll have a culminating full stack capstone project in your software engineering portfolio. All of your code will be housed on GitHub and built out with real-world libraries and methodologies—demonstrating your technical, practical, and creative skills to future employers.
Check out some of our past coding student capstone projects.
Throughout bootcamp, you’ll program alongside a partner. Together, you’ll assume defined roles to solve programming challenges and double-check each other’s work.
Some things are better when they are shared
Employers love to see ample pair programming experience on your resume because it demonstrates practical knowledge as well as creative problem-solving skills. Plus, pair programming helps you get a feel for real-world remote work environments while building lasting, meaningful professional relationships.
Prepare for a Career in Coding
Upon graduation and for a full year beyond, you’ll opt into Career Success to receive the guidance and tools you’ll need to power your job search and land the ideal web developer role for you.
Portfolio of Apps
The projects and prototypes you build throughout bootcamp come together to form a comprehensive coding portfolio.
We’ll help you write and optimize a profile to jumpstart the networking process and demo your web applications for employer visibility.
Tech employers across the board want to see a strong GitHub profile—and that is exactly what you will have by the end of the program.
You’ll work with our Career Success Team to craft an effective resume that shows off your skills as a full stack software engineer.

Fullstack Academy Graduates Get Hired
With an in-depth curriculum spanning computer science fundamentals to front-end and back-end web development, the part-time Software Engineering Bootcamp is best for motivated students who are passionate about tech—but don’t want to quit their job or other daily commitments.
The Fullstack Academy part-time coding bootcamp is designed to engage and challenge students throughout their bootcamp experience on an accelerated timeline. That’s why we’ve developed a thoughtful application process to ensure prospective students are a good fit for the program—and vice-versa!
Here’s what we look for in prospective students.
You’re committed to learning advanced material at an accelerated, rigorous bootcamp pace.
You’re considerate, dedicated, creative, and team-oriented.
No matter where your interests take you, you’re always continuing to learn and grow along the way.
A word of advice to older prospective students like myself. You may be frustrated where you are right now but afraid to make the leap, to quit your job, to spend your savings on a bootcamp, to take three months to learn, to work 80 hours a week. I promise it’s worth it.
Front-End Engineer, Amazon
Fullstack Academy is, by all measures, the best investment I have made to date, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody considering it, especially those with little to no prior programming knowledge. I will note, however, that hard, consistent, and dedicated individual work is a must if you want to make the most out of the Fullstack Academy investment.
Software Engineer, Google
The instructors are always available for one-on-one help and will take the time to guide you through questions and problems. Their level of engagement in each student's learning process is what sets Fullstack apart.
Software Engineer, RUN
Within 4 weeks, I received 2 job offers at companies I was really excited about. During my interviews, both companies were pleasantly surprised by how knowledgeable and capable a bootcamp grad could be. Truly, I owe it all to Fullstack Academy's education and preparation.
Full-Stack Developer, PreparedHealth

The future of web development has moved toward sophisticated, responsive, and dynamic single-page applications running in the browser. Apps like Gmail, Asana, Trello, Facebook, and Google Maps have redefined what users expect from web applications and what developers need to deliver.
What about Ruby on Rails, Python, or other engineering languages? Why are other schools teaching these—or a combination of these—instead?
Ruby on Rails has been instrumental in consolidating many best practices in back-end web development—making it easier for developers to build large sites in an organized way. Meanwhile, Python has completely revolutionized the way sites record and use data—and we do teach Python foundational skills in our Data Analytics bootcamps.
Fullstack Academy is not currently able to accept tuition assistance payments from the GI Bill® (though we’re working hard on changing this!). However, veterans do automatically qualify for our $1,000 scholarship, and additional tuition assistance may be acquired through VET TEC for select Fullstack Academy programs.
Contact your local VA office for details, then visit our friends at Operation Code to learn more about veteran tech training efforts and how you can support the cause.
We recommend applying at least two weeks prior to your desired cohort start date: the earlier, the better. This will allow you time to take the no-risk admissions assessment, receive your admissions decision, and complete your enrollment materials. Apply now.
