Ready to learn to code and begin your new career?
STEP 1: APPLY!
Get started and submit your application form
STEP 2: PRE-ASSESSMENT WORK
You will receive online resources that will give you an opportunity to explore the world of software programming and also help you prepare for the next step – the assessment! These resources will be crucial in helping you determine whether software programming is the right career for you.
STEP 3: ASSESSMENT
Take our online assessment which is designed to help showcase your ability to think logically, analyze issues, and to solve problems. The assessment is completed in one sitting and can only be taken once per application cycle. Don’t forget to have fun!
STEP 4: GROUP INTERVIEW
If you pass the assessment, you will be invited to a group interview. During the 60-minute group interview, you will be participating with 3-4 other applicants in group activities that allow you to demonstrate your ability to work in a team. You will be asked to solve fun challenges as a group and meet others interested in attending the Zip Code Wilmington program.
STEP 5: FINAL INTERVIEWS
Those selected to move forward after the Group Interview will conduct a one-on-one professional interview as well as a “whiteboard” (technical) interview with our Executive Director and a Zip Code technical instructor, respectively.
FINAL STEP: ADMISSIONS DECISION
The Admissions Manager will contact applicants who have completed final interviews with a decision.

We have accepted applicants with all types of educational and professional backgrounds – from high school graduates to PhDs. Our students’ backgrounds have included work as musicians, engineers, customer service reps, scientists and warehouse workers.
You must have a high school diploma or GED and be able to legally work without sponsorship in the United States. Accepted students must also complete a criminal background check.
The application process is multi-step and typically takes 8-12 weeks from submitting your application to acceptance decision.
We’re looking for passionate self-starters with grit, tenacity and a fierce love of problem solving.
Practice, practice, practice. Prepare for the admissions assessment by using these free resources. The more time you spend learning the basics, the better you will do throughout the application process. Plus, it will help you confirm that software development is the right choice for you.
Re-apply! If you need to withdraw your application or do not get accepted into the program, please re-apply for the next session. Some applicants need more time to work on their coding skills and may need to re-apply to have a better chance of being accepted.
Not at this time. We currently require all applicants to go through the entire application process each time they apply.
