Financial Aid


We strive to be as honest and transparent as possible. There are no marketing tricks here, but we can still make one promise. When you compare quality of education and price, PDX Code Guild is a better value than our competitors. We’re authentic, 100% taught in-person by qualified instructors, (No classtime spent taught by videos or T.A.’s!) local, and committed to serving our community.


$8,000 with the available discounts Full price is $12,500 $8,500 with Needs-Based Discount (moderate income typically qualifies) $8,000 if paid in full 7 days before class starts.

Additional grants also available that pay for a portion or all of tuition, on top of the previously mentioned discounts. For military: We also accept Veterans’ benefits including the G.I. Bill®

Code Guild has several financial aid tools for helping you pay for tuition. Tools may be combined.

  1. Need-Based Discount PDX Code Guild offers a very liberal needs-based discount. In general, if you’re considered having a moderate-income level or less, you’ll most likely qualify. If you do qualify, tuition drops to $8,500. How-To Apply: Include an additional essay with your application describing how you qualify for the discount and how you'll use your bootcamp education.
  2. SkillsFund SkillsFund is a company who partners with specific, qualified bootcamps to offer private loans for tuition. Anyone can apply for this no matter his or her income level. The loan interest rates are competitive with private tuition loans you’d get through your bank, but the benefit is you only make principal payments while you’re in bootcamp. Skills fund also offers a $7,500 cost of living stipend if you’re taking the day bootcamp. Principle payments don’t start until after graduation! Apply: You’ll need to be accepted into PDX Code Guild before you apply in order to know how much you’ll need to borrow. Again, we can walk you through this process.
  3. Veterans' benefits Students may use their Veteran's Benefits including GI Bill benefits at PDX Code Guild. Students may combine Veteran's benefits with other forms of financial aid.
  4. Grants There are numerous 3rd-party grants available, and most of our students qualify for a grant to help pay tuition. A few of those grants come from • Work Source • Trade Act • Workman’s compensation • And more
  5. Bonus Discount For students who have to pay a portion of their tuition out-of-pocket, we offer an additional $500 discount if you can pay your portion in full on or before the first day of bootcamp.
  6. In-House Payments This option is for those who do not qualify for the need-based discount, as the two cannot work together. Pay half tuition, $6,250, before class starts and then $125 payments monthly while you’re in class until you get a job. Once you get a job, payments will be 8% income, or $350, whichever is less.
