Ada Developers Academy is cost-free to make the program more accessible to those who are unable to fund a comparable software engineering education.
While Ada has no tuition, students must be prepared to pay for living expenses, particularly during the classroom portion of the program. Due to the full-time nature of the program, students are not able to work full-time or part-time while they are enrolled. During the internship period (the last five months), students will receive a stipend for $20 an hour at 35 hours/week.
For students who need assistance covering their living expenses during the Ada classroom portion, we offer a 0% interest loan through our lending partner, Community Credit Lab. Learn more about CCL’s Ada Developers Academy Loan program here.
