Codeup students invited to enroll in coding boot camp at a reduced cost

Codeup students invited to enroll in coding boot camp at a reduced cost

JANUARY 17, 2024 — The UTSA School of Data Science and Office of Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE) is now offering former Codeup students the opportunity to enroll in a Full Stack Coding boot camp to continue their education at a reduced cost.

Working in collaboration with the City of San Antonio, and Ready to Work, San Antonio’s training, education and employment program, UTSA is introducing this initiative to help those sidelined by the recent closure of Codeup, a San Antonio coding boot camp.

Former Codeup students should contact PaCE at (210) 458-PaCE (7223) by January 19, 2024 to apply.

"We are working with our community partners to ensure students affected by the closure have support at UTSA," said Melissa Mahan, UTSA associate vice provost for PaCE. "The university is dedicated to providing full support, echoing our commitment to the success of local students."

“The university is dedicated to providing full support, echoing our commitment to the success of local students.”

This initiative aligns with the increasing demand for skilled professionals in San Antonio’s tech industry and the call for local education providers to fill the gap. Students can enroll in the comprehensive six-month boot camp program that begins on January 16, 2024. Led by experienced instructors in a live-virtual format, the curriculum covers front and back-end web development technologies and incorporates real-world, project-based learning.

UTSA is offering former Codeup students entry into its boot camp at a 30% reduction in tuition. The Ready to Work program will cover $5,000 of the boot camp cost, resulting in an out-of-pocket expense of $3,000 for students to complete their training. Various alternative funding sources are available to provide further support for students.

In addition to the boot camp, UTSA's Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII) has multiple paid internship positions including free training and certification opportunities.

UTSA is uniquely positioned to help Codeup students complete their existing certificate program and able to connect them with additional opportunities for skill and career growth.

In 2019, UTSA launched the San Antonio Workforce Initiative to increase the number and range of programs to support lifelong learners and help workers advance in their current jobs, enable those without a college degree to finish successfully, and help them compete for better-paying jobs or new careers.
