Talent Is Distributed Evenly,
Opportunity Is Not!

Zip Code Wilmington is committed to making our transformational program available to the most diverse candidate pool possible.

Affording a world class education has never been easier. We created our pricing model to make a career in software development as accessible and affordable as possible.


Each of Zip Code’s bootcamps cost $16,500 per student.

Students are expected to pay $6,000 up front, unless they qualify for our scholarships. After completion of the program, the balance for a student hired by a corporate partner will be $1,500, with the corporate partner paying the remaining $9,000. Graduates do not owe the remainder of their tuition unless and until they land a job using the skills for which they received training.

Students who do not receive, or decline, an offer for a direct-hire job with a corporate partner are responsible for paying the remaining balance due, which is discounted for students up to a maximum balance of $7,500.



Need-based Scholarships & Stipends

See Federal Guidelines

Delaware Residents: For a limited time, and through the generous support of Delaware Governor John Carney, candidates who are Delaware residents and who can prove their household has earned less than 350% of the national poverty level may be eligible for a full scholarship and stipends through a workforce training grant funded by the American Rescue Plan Act.

Students may apply for financial assistance once they have been accepted into the program. Proper documentation is required for all financial assistance applications and it is the responsibility of the applicant to timely produce the necessary information to demonstrate eligibility for these opportunities.

  • 50% of the tuition paid once “meaningful employment” is obtained in the field.
Living stipends are offered as well, provided that the veteran confirms their enrollment with the VA on a monthly basis during their program.
