How do I pay for tuition? Are financing options available?

We understand your education is an important investment, and we strive to make tuition as easy and accessible as possible.

Payment options are also covered on our Tuition Page and our helpful Tuition Guide, which you can print or save for reference. You don't have to choose your tuition payment plan before you apply—you'll have a chance to choose your tuition approach when enrolling, and, if applicable, you will receive an invoice shortly after with additional instruction.

Bootcamp Tuition Payment Options

Paying Upfront

Paying your tuition upfront is the most straightforward and lowest-cost option available to you. You simply pay the full amount of your tuition to us before class starts.

Financing Your Coding Bootcamp

You may not be able to pay your bootcamp tuition in full, and that's ok! Many of our students finance their tuition through a third-party lender. We're proud to partner with Climb Credit to offer affordable loans to our students. Climb Credit offers loans specifically for career changers and advancers across all financial backgrounds, so you can finance your education with confidence.

The benefits of financing through our lending partners:

Financing your tuition allows you to spread to cost of tuition over a number of years, and results in the lowest monthly payment. 

  • 3-5 year loans covering up to 100% of tuition for all DigitalCrafts programs
  • Interest-only period available for full-time students
  • Applying doesn't impact your credit score
  • It takes just 5 minutes to apply

See your rates with Climb Credit. It takes just minutes to apply, and doesn't impact your credit score!

What if I have bad credit?

Students with little or no credit history are encouraged to apply with a co-borrower, which often helps with the approval process. 

Do I have to use Climb Credit?

You may use any lender of your choice, so you should feel free to obtain quotes from any lender you choose. There are a number of affordable programs out there, including SoFi, Upstart, Marcus by Goldman Sachs, Lending Tree and many more.

Installment Plans for Full Time and Part Time Students

Installment plans are available for both or full time and part time programs. Here's how that works:

  • We'll split your tuition into 4 equal payments throughout your class. There are no late fees or other financial payment penalties. 
  • Making those payments on time is a requirement in order to stay in class, and you must pay your tuition in full in order to graduate.

Community and Government Funding

There are many programs available from state and local governments, and groups that you're a part of may offer scholarships, so be sure to check out your options!

One program we've worked with is the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA), which offers up to $7,000 in tuition assistance to qualifying students. WIOA is run at the county level, and we are an approved training vendor in most of Atlanta's neighboring counties.

Check with your local WIOA office to see if you might qualify for aid, which can be based on income level, having been recently laid off, or other factors. Students who qualify for WIOA assistance will, in most cases, be required to pay the remaining balance themselves, whether upfront or through one of our lending partners.

Student Aid & 529 Plans

Most coding bootcamps like DigitalCrafts are considered non-accredited, certificate-granting post-secondary programs, so 529 plans or federal student aid are not applicable.

You Don't Have to Decide Your Payment Plan Before Enrolling

If you're not sure which payment option is right for you, that's ok! You can decide after you apply, and you can change your mind until class begins. 

How You'll Send Your Payments


Enrollment deposits ($99) may be paid via credit card with no additional fee. If you decide not to enroll before your start date, your deposit is refundable in full.


You have a couple of options for making tuition payments:

  • You may pay via ACH bank transfer with no additional fee. 
  • We can accept credit card payments towards tuition, but we pass along the 3% payment processing fee for any payments in excess of the enrollment deposit.
  • We also accept checks. Make out the check to DigitalCrafts, LLC and mail it to P.O. Box 681189, Schaumburg, IL 60168. There is a $15 fee for bounced checks.
