Catalyst Program

Learn now, pay later. Currently available at select U.S. campuses, our Catalyst program lets students take a career-changing Immersive course at no upfront cost. Pay back your tuition in manageable monthly installments only once you’ve landed a job making $40,000 or more.

Employer Sponsorship

More than 45% of General Assembly’s part-time students receive tuition reimbursement from their employers. Employer sponsorship option is an effective way for organizations to invest in their talent — and their teams’ future — through education in new, relevant skills.

Installment Payment Plan

For students who are unable to pay the full cost of tuition at one time, we offer installment plan options that spread payment out over the duration of a course. Depending on the course format, various payment increments are available.

Loan Options

For students interested in financing the cost of their education, we’ve partnered with high-quality lenders that offer affordable rates to our community members. Financing options differ on each campus:

GI Bill® Benefit

Veterans in select U.S. cities can put their GI Bill® benefit to work in one of our full-time Immersive programs. Learn web development, user experience design, or data science, and take full advantage of our robust career support programming to land a new full-time role.

Social Impact Programs

We partner with nonprofits, governments, and companies to provide access to GA courses to underrepresented communities in tech and adults with low income. Regardless of previous barriers to education and employment, Social Impact programs aim to give qualifying individuals the opportunity to pursue meaningful careers they love.
