Can I Get College Credit at a Coding Bootcamp?

The American Council on Education’s National Guide recommends both Devmountain’s Coding Basics (3 credits) and our Foundations (15 credits) curriculum for college credit. Should you choose to attend a college or university down the road, students may be eligible to transfer those credits (up to the combined 18), depending on your college’s admissions criteria.
