You’ll also have weekly meetings with your classmates to present your work and discuss different topics.

Refunds

If you need to leave the program for any reason, you can cancel within two weeks and get a full refund. If you leave after the first 2 weeks, you will receive a prorated refund based on the number of weeks you have spent in the program. Non-refundable $100 fees apply to the payment plan.


Class Rules

1. Study the week's materials and finish the homework on time. Finishing homework on time will allow your mentor to have time to review your work before the meeting and provide more insightful feedback.

2. There are total of 12 mentor meetings and 12 cohort meetings. Your attendance is required for all meetings. You may pass the course with the maximum of two absent meetings for mentor meetings and two absent meetings for cohort meetings for unforeseen emergencies. You are still required to complete the items indicated in the course complete requirements by the end of the course.

4. We all have times that we need to reschedule a meeting. Here are rules for rescheduling mentor sessions:

Reschedule more than 48 hours before a session

You may reschedule a session if you notify your mentor at least 48 hours before a session. A make-up session will be scheduled accordingly.

Reschedule within 48 hours of a session

In a case of an emergency, you can contact your mentor and reschedule a session within 48 hours. You are allowed to do so up to two times. If you reschedule a session within 48 hours more than twice, we can't guarantee a make-up session.

No show

If you don't show without a notification, there will be no make-up session.


Introduction to Companies

To be introduced to companies after finishing the course, you must meet the following criteria.

  • Reside in a major US city
  • Eligible to work legally
  • Over 21
  • Course completion requirements

We leverage our alumni and mentor network and do not have a list of companies we partnered to place students currently. If our internal network doesn’t cover your city, we’ll introduce you to job placement agencies with national coverage, such as Aquent and Robert Half.

Unless you are open to remote work, it is important to research a demand for UX designers in your area before signing up for the course.
