WORKFORCE INNOVATION & OPPORTUNITY ACT
In partnership with local workforce development boards, Tech Elevator is an Eligible Training Provider in the states of Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania underneath the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act, which authorizes and funds employment and training programs in the United States.
Education should be a right, not a privilege. We believe that the natural aptitude for learning to code is distributed evenly throughout the population, but access to opportunity is not. We initiated our Represent Tech Scholarship to identify and elevate future diverse leaders in tech. With this scholarship, Tech Elevator has committed over $1M to provide access to underrepresented groups with a quality tech education and a future in the world of tech.
PAY WHEN YOU GET A JOB
With the Stride Funding & Tech Elevator Income Share Agreement (ISA), you pay a $2,000 deposit and then $0 in tuition until you’re hired and earning at least $40,000 per year.
THE GI BILL
The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), underneath the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs (DVA, or simply VA), offers a wide variety of education and training benefits to veterans, otherwise known as GI Bill® benefits. If you're a veteran, you could qualify for GI Bill benefits to help pay for tuition.
The Hebrew Free Loan organizations work with members of their communities to provide interest-free loans for educational assistance. Each organization has its own rules regarding who may borrow, the maximum loan amount, and the repayment process.
State vocational rehabilitation agencies offer personalized services to help individuals with disabilities meet their employment needs, including financing opportunities and access to reasonable accommodations.

We’re proud to work with lenders who offer financing options for both tuition and cost of living. Check out details about our partners like Sallie Mae, Ascent and HFLA on this page.
While it is recommended you research potential financing options after you apply to Tech Elevator, students should not apply for a loan until they have been accepted and enrolled in a Tech Elevator cohort.
Our two most popular loan providers are Sallie Mae and Ascent. Applications for loans from Sallie Mae and Ascent can be completed and approved within 30 minutes if you do not use a cosigner. If you apply for a loan with a cosigner, it may extend the approval process by a few weeks. Please touch base with the loan provider on estimated times for approval with a cosigner as it may vary.
The application for Sallie Mae opens 300 days prior to the start of the cohort, while the application for Ascent opens 90 days before the cohort starts. Please do not apply until you have been accepted into the program.

Sallie Mae: For students who receive loans from Sallie Mae, half of their tuition will be paid directly to Tech Elevator 10 days after the cohort begins and the other half will be paid the Wednesday of week 8. If you received additional funds for cost of living, those funds are included in the payments made to Tech Elevator. Upon receiving each of the payments, Tech Elevator will send you a check for your cost of living funds either in person at your campus or via mail. Each of the two cost of living disbursements will be 50% of the total amount.
Ascent: Total tuition for Ascent is paid 10 days after the cohort begins. If you received cost of living funds, Ascent will send those to you directly.
