An image describing the steps for admission to Eleven Fifty Academy.


Apply

At any time, our online application can be completed to begin the admissions process. The application only takes a few minutes and is reviewed within 1-3 business days. After applying online, our admissions advisor will reach out to set up a meeting if the potential student has not yet met with an admissions advisor.

Schedule a Meeting

We encourage all prospective students to meet with one of our admissions advisors. The meeting will allow our admissions team to get to know the potential student and ensure the best course options are presented to meet the individual’s needs and career goals. Our advisors will give a quick tour and also cover all financial and scholarship options in the meeting.

Secure Your Seat

Once students have successfully passed our admissions assessment and have met our acceptance criteria, they will need to secure a class spot with a non-refundable tuition deposit and a completed financial agreement. We encourage the deposit and financial agreement be completed following acceptance so that a space in the class is guaranteed.

Pre-Work

Accepted students are required to complete pre-work before the first day of an immersive coding or cybersecurity course.

Pre-work includes A+ fundamentals for cybersecurity and HTML and CSS fundamentals for coding, a light overview of the basics, and is between 15-20 hours of pre-work.

Can I take this class back-to-back with an Immersion Course?

Yes! All start dates of our Immersion Courses are scheduled to directly follow the end of the Foundations Courses that help prepare you for them.

How is this different from the other courses Eleven Fifty Academy offers?

This is a true entrylevel coding course with handson curriculum to help you learn the basics. This course will cover topics related to writing software whereas our other courses in Information Technology (IT) and Cybersecurity focus more on hardware and software systems and their design, usage, maintenance, and protection. 

What are the kinds of jobs I could get after graduating from this Course?

This course alone will not likely prepare you for an entry-level coding job. To be well prepared for an entry-level coding job, you should consider applying for one of our Immersive Courses after completion of your Foundations course. Depending on your background and experience, you could qualify for roles such as Technical Sales, Customer Experience, Technical Support or Implementation Manager.

What if I want to extend my learning after this course?

You can continue your education with one of our Immersive Courses in our Coding Track, either Web Development or Software Development, or in our IT Track with Secure Networking.

Do I need my own computer?

Yes, students will need their own computer.

For our immersive programs, preparing your laptop is one of the best ways to prepare for class. In order to arm you for success, below are our minimum requirement for your laptop. Given that you will need your laptop for class work and in the evenings for homework, you will need a laptop rather than a desktop. It is also recommended by our previous students that a mouse and mouse pad are valuable (though not required) as well.

General Eleven Fifty Academy System requirements:

  • Access to high-speed internet (5 Mbps+ up and down), but you’ll need more if you’re sharing your connection with others
  • Latest version of Firefox or Chrome web browser
    You will want to clean off unneeded files before class to maximize your laptop performance during class and prevent interruptions due to lack of space
  • Chromebooks will not work for our courses
  • A 13 inch or larger screen is recommended. Multiple monitors are helpful. Note distance students get a second monitor as part of their care package.
  • A computer microphone and camera are required.

If you have a Windows laptop, here is what you will need to be successful:

  • At least 8 gigs of RAM (more is better)
  • At least 256 gigs of hard drive space (100 gigs or more free)
  • Intel i5 or greater (i7 is preferred) / AMD a10-7800 or greater
  • Windows Version 10

If you have a Mac computer, here is what you will need to be successful:

  • 2015 MacBook (Air or Pro) or newer
  • At least 256 gigs of hard drive space (100 gigs or more free)
  • More to bootcamp for the Software Development course
  • Latest MacOS X (High Sierra or newer)

DISCLAIMER FOR MACS: Apple has introduced a new M1 chip that does not currently support bootcamping to Windows and therefore will not be supported for our Software Development course. How to Check If Your Mac has M1 Chip – A to Z Apple Silicon

If you have a question or concern about your laptop, feel free to reach out to learning@elevenfifty.org and one of our instructional staff members will help out!

What certifications can I earn in this course?

During the course, you will be given the opportunity to take the CIW HTML5 & CSS3 Specialist certification exam, free of charge. You will also receive a Coding Foundations Gold Badge from Eleven Fifty Academy that can be shared on your resume and LinkedIn to signify your successful completion of the course.

Does this course require any coding or IT experience?

No, this course starts from the very basics from a technical standpoint. 

Do I qualify for an online coding bootcamp scholarship?

The world of tuition scholarships is a complex place, but our admissions team specializes in finding support for those who need it most. Our program’s strength originates in the diversity of our students, and we strive to offer bootcamp programs to everyone who wants to change their career or level up to achieve their goals.

What Are The Benefits of Free Coding Classes for Veterans?

The Benefits of Free Coding Classes for Veterans

Fortunately for the coding-curious out there, Eleven Fifty has free classes to help prospective students learn more about our bootcamp programs. There are many benefits to joining a free class before signing up for a bootcamp. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions, will connect with our educators, and will be able to sample what a real coding class will look like once you enroll in a bootcamp.

Ask Your Burning Questions

Joining a coding bootcamp is a great idea for anyone who wants to break into the world of information technology, but it’s a unique and intensive program. The free coding class will allow you time to ask questions about the day-to-day bootcamp operations and will help you understand what to expect as a programming student at Eleven Fifty.

Meet Our Instructors

Our educators are what makes our bootcamps shine. In your free coding class, you’ll meet our instructors and will get a sense of how they run their courses. It’s helpful for prospective students to connect with instructors before making a decision to join a bootcamp, and we recommend taking advantage of the opportunity before starting a full course.

Dip Your Toes In

Enrolling in a bootcamp for a specialized subject is a big commitment if you’re aren’t already somewhat familiar with what coding is all about. Joining a free introductory class will give you a sense of what it’s like to become a coder and to see if it’s really for you. We want you to know what you’re getting yourself into, and a free class is a great way to do just that.

Can I receive any Leadership Training as part of this?

Yes! We are working on building out some technical leadership training that will be optional and free for you to participate in.

Can I choose to take a month off from being a Tech Mentor?

Absolutely, we, and our grads, are incredibly grateful for any time you are able to volunteer for this program and we understand life may, at times, get in the way. Each month, we will ask if you are wanting to participate in the following month.
