Admission Guidelines

Students who do well in this program:

  • Have the drive:
    Bootcamp is challenging. Successful students are highly motivated.

  • Make the time commitment:
    This is a full-time program, and requires a commitment of 30 hours a week. Focusing solely on school, with as few outside obligations as possible, is a big factor in student success.

  • Are comfortable communicating:
    You are paired daily with other students to complete assignments and exercises. You must be comfortable communicating in English, communicating kindly and directly, and sharing your screen and camera.

  • Have reliable equipment and a stable work environment:
    Learning itself is challenging, so be sure to minimize external challenges. We recommend Free Geek for affordable and reliable used equipment.

Not all bootcamps are created equal. Data Stack Academy gets our students job ready with daily timed coding challenges and support from experienced mentors. Our graduates stand out with extraordinary portfolios and interview skills.

According to Course Report 2023, 80% of bootcamp graduates get jobs using the skills they used in bootcamp. Data Stack Academy’s graduates are landing well-paid jobs at top-tier companies.

If you leave bootcamp for any reason, you’ll only be charged for the percentage of the coursework you attended. Please see the Acknowledgement of Cancellation Policy for details.

Attending one of our workshops is a good way to get a feel for bootcamp before you register and pay tuition.

Tech always goes through cycles. However, data engineers are still in demand. Data Stack’s curriculum is constantly being adapted to the job market, so our graduates can fill roles that other people can’t.

AI will change many aspects of our lives in the near future. While many job titles in tech may change, the demand for skilled data engineers will remain the same.

Currently, we only have a full-time cohort (six hours a day, five days a week), but we plan to have a part-time program in the future.

If you’re interested in a part-time program, please email us at and we’ll be in touch when it’s available.

Internship is guaranteed for students who:

  • Complete all the coursework
  • Pass all the code reviews
  • Complete a capstone project
  • Complete career services activities

After the coursework, students and internship companies go through a matchmaking process. Completing the internship is part of Data Stack’s graduation requirements, so we make sure every student who qualifies is placed at a host company.

Data Stack tuition is not covered by U.S. Department of Education loans or grants, but there are still loan options available. Choose the tuition payment plan that works best for you.
