Financial Aid and Scholarships


Upon enrollment, you are required to pay a $1500 deposit to secure your seat in the program. You will have 3 days from signing the contract to pay your deposit in order to secure your spot in the program.
For the remaining balance of tuition, there are two options. You can either pay the remaining balance in full during the first week of the program or you can work with one of our lending partners for financing options.
Galvanize partners with lending partners to help finance your tuition. These programs allow you to defer the majority of your tuition payment over three years with a lowered interest rate. Our partners are Skills Fund and Climb Credit. More information will be available about the lending process throughout the admissions process.
Yes, you can pay for a portion of your tuition with an upfront payment and finance the remainder with our lending partner.
We offer Galvanize Scholarships, which provide partial tuition scholarships ranging from $1,000-$5,000 for eligible applicants. We consider scholarship applications on the basis of merit, demonstrated financial need, and increasing diversity in the technology industry. We often receive sponsorship scholarship opportunities from organizations including, but not limited to, Glassbreaks, IBM, Silicon Valley Bank, and the Reverend Jesse Jackson Rainbow PUSH Coalition. These opportunities allow us to offer additional scholarship funding. Galvanize makes the process easy and uses one application for all scholarship opportunities. You will receive a link to the scholarship application when you apply to the course.
You will get a link to the scholarship application after you submit your program application. Scholarship deadlines are 3 weeks before the class starts, and awards are given out 2 weeks before the class starts. Each class has a scholarship fund – you must apply before the deadline to be considered!
Yes. First, apply with our lending partners for the full amount during the admissions process. Should you receive a scholarship later, the scholarship amount can easily be deducted from the loan amount with the lending partners. Scholarships and lending partner funding cannot be used to pay the deposit.
We require an initial $1,500 enrollment deposit, paid online, to secure your seat in the program within 3 days of receiving the invoice. Generally the deposit form is sent within 1 business day of signing the contract.
Absolutely. If you are interested in attending a Galvanize immersive program and plan on returning to your employer afterwards, we are happy to speak with your managers to help facilitate this process.
No. The deposit cannot be covered by a scholarship award or from funding provided by a lending partner. It must be paid upfront.
In California, veterans will be able to use Chapter 31 benefits. Students in other states may be able to use them, but need to go through the VA for approval.
