Tuition and Financing

Standard tuition is $11,500, and includes 570 hours of class time, a supervised internship, and a year of post-graduation career support.

Data Stack tuition isn’t 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.

Upfront Payment Discount

Tuition is discounted to $9,775 if paid in full before the start of bootcamp. This can be done on Mia Share’s site for Data Stack Academy.

Loans and Payment Plans

Our financing partners, Meritize and Mia Share, offer loan options depending on your credit score, and how much you want to pay upfront.

Both companies have quick applications. If you think loans are the way you want to go, please start this process before the start of class. Click the links for more details.

Income Share Agreement (ISA)

An Income Share Agreement (ISA) is a flexible type of funding where you receive your tuition in exchange for a fixed percentage of your future income for a set period of time. You will only make payments after graduation, once you have a job. Payments will adjust with your income, aligning with your success.

To learn more about ISA options, visit the Mia Share site for Data Stack students.


We offer a limited number of scholarships, which cover all but $1,000 of tuition. Scholarships are awarded to students who are from demographics that are underrepresented in tech (this includes people of color, women, and trans people), and who create exemplary code reviews in the Data Engineering 101 pre-enrollment course.

Additional Fees

In addition to tuition, students pay a $50 registration fee, to reserve a spot in class. This paid when the enrollment agreement is signed. It’s refundable only if the enrollment agreement is cancelled within five days of signing.

Students are responsible for their own internet, hardware, software, and workspace.


Fees are how students commit to reserving their spot in class. However, we understand that life happens, and sometimes a student needs to cancel enrollment. The Data Stack policy is:

      • Bootcamp tuition will be prorated based on the amount of time the student attended class, not including internship. If the student cancels before the start of class, they’ll be refunded their full tuition.

      • The $50 registration fee is non-refundable unless the enrollment agreement is cancelled within five days of signing.

    All withdraws or cancellations must be sent in writing, via email, to

    Any agreements with our financing partners, Mia Share and Meritize, must be negotiated with that company.
