At Thinkful, we are committed to your success. Learning these skills is difficult but leads to career opportunities in fast-growing fields. We’re confident that if you put in the work and follow our program, you can land a job in your field. We back our commitment with the “Tuition Refund Guarantee”: subject to the terms below, we will refund 100% of your tuition if you are not offered a “Qualifying Position” (as defined below) within 180 days of graduation from your Thinkful program. It is important to note that every student, whether or not eligible for the Tuition Refund Guarantee, receives the same level of career support and access to 20 hours of career services support 180 days immediately following graduation. Prior to graduation, you will be given the opportunity to opt in or out to receive this support. Opting out does impact your eligibility.
To qualify for the Tuition Refund Guarantee you must:
A “Qualifying Position” means a "Full Time", "In-Field" position that is either "Long Term" or "Medium Term".
It is important to know that job titles in tech vary enormously from field to field and even company to company. As such, we expect you to apply for jobs suitable for your experience and background.
During the "Career Services Period" starting at graduation we expect you to fully commit to the job search and to work as hard as you did before graduating. We require you to engage in the process as a professional and to take our recommendations seriously. To retain eligibility for the guarantee you must:
