We are pleased to announce that LearningFuze has now partnered with Affirm, the financial tech startup founded in 2014 by PayPal founder Max Levchin, which provides a 3rd party lending option to students enrolling in coding bootcamps.
Financing options have been long overdue for students wanting to enroll in highly competitive coding bootcamps as federal student loan assistance is still lagging behind the new adaptive educational model which is aimed at practical job-ready skills and individualized attention.
Affirm is currently “purposely selective, and only working with bootcamps that place a high percentage of their graduates in high-paying jobs” (see Wired article). Applicants accepted into LearningFuze will now have financing options with more favorable terms, rates, and lower total tuition.
Please see highlights below but for more information, FAQ’s, or to apply, visit the Affirm/LearningFuze partnership page.
Affirm Loan Offering:
- 12, 15 and 18-month plans
- APR varies from 6% to 20%
- Down payment equal to $2,000
All loan options provided by Affirm are based on each individual situation with Affirm operating independently from LearningFuze.
