We believe that these opportunities should be available to anyone with the passion, drive, and aptitude to learn them. In order to support increasing diversity within the field of technology, we offer some classes specifically targeted toward various groups of individuals who are underrepresented in the field of technology. These courses are marked with audience tags such as Women+ for classes held specifically for people of marginalized genders, or Access+ for other underrepresented groups as specified. To learn more about how our Women+ course designation came to be, CHECK OUT OUR BLOG.
Please note, you must reside in the Kansas City, Philadelphia, or St. Louis metro area to apply for this course.
The class is broken up into units. There are no grades in the class, but students must complete all of the required assignments from the current unit in order to continue to the next. Those deadlines will be made clear at the beginning of the class.
Yes, though it is less likely. The Problem Solving Assessment is important because it shows us how applicants approach puzzles that require logical thinking, which directly relates to a student’s ability to master the material presented in the class.
Unfortunately, we are unable to allow applicants to retake the Assessment unless they can demonstrate that they experienced technical difficulties that prohibited them from completing it.
When assessing applicants for our learning programs, a number of factors are considered, including passion, drive, application questions, essay questions, aptitude for problem solving, interest in landing a job in tech, applicant need, and spaces available in the class.
When enrolling students, we also strive to assemble a class that reflects the broader community and represents a diverse array of backgrounds.
You can always view your current status by logging into your LaunchCode account, and viewing “Classes”. There, you will be able to access the Assessment as long as you have correctly submitted the application.
Yes, it is okay to miss a class as long as you keep up with the lessons and homework detailed in the schedule. Remember, you will need to make up any class time you miss on your own time, and you won’t have the benefit of having your classmates and Teaching Fellows to answer your questions in person. Once you fall behind in class, the fast pace of the curriculum means it quickly becomes very difficult to catch up again.
Each class has a decision date, by which you will receive notification of your application status. Please do not inquire about your application status unless you have not heard back after that date.
