Q:  How much does it cost? What's the catch?

A:   EpicU is a free programming trade school (it will always be free to students and is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization). The catch is that we don't coddle so if you're not up to the task of learning, we aren't up to the task of teaching you.

Q: How long is the program and how much time will it take?

A: The program is 1 year. The first 3 months are full-time classroom based learning. The next 9 months are a full-time, paid apprenticeship at one of our Dallas-based partner companies.

Q: Where are the classes held?

A: Classes are held in Dallas where the 183 and 35E Highways meet.

Q:  What are the chances of getting in and how often can I apply?

A:  A new class of 20-30 students will start every quarter.

Q: When does the next class start?

A: The next class starts the first week of September, 2016.

Q: Do I need good grades, test scores, recommendations or to prove need?

A: This is a merit-based program. No consideration is given based on need. Students will be expected to complete all assignments to a high standard. Only your application and interview will determine your eligibility.

Q:  What will happen if I complete the program after 1 year?

A:  Graduates can expect to be Junior Developers by the end of the program.

Q:  No seriously, what's the catch?

A:  Alumni will be asked (but not required) to give back to future students by teaching or mentoring.

Q:  What if I don't have a high school diploma?

A:  Students must be over 18 OR have a high school diploma. 

Q:  I've never tried programming. What are my chances of getting in?

A:  No prior programming experience is required or expected.
