You've got questions. We've got answers.

It depends! All of our plans are flexible, self-paced options, but each one serves a different type of student. All of our offerings vary slightly, but the ultimate goal for each of them (except for Subatomic) is to prepare you to enter the workforce as an entry-level software developer - even if you're using a tech stack on the job that's slightly different from what we teach. Our curriculum is designed to create a solid foundation in one programming language (JavaScript) so that you actually understand how to program by the end of the program. Once you know one language, it's much easier to learn another. We also created an iterative curriculum - just like one you'd find in an in-person bootcamp - so at the beginning you're learning the basics and fundamentals, but you'll use that throughout the rest of the course. It's not an "a la carte" service - it's built to incrementally build up your knowledge and skillset so that by the time you pass your final assessment, you're prepared to add value to any employer or business starting from day one.

There are two reasons you'd be interested in our Subatomic plan: (1) you're new around here and you want to see if learning to code is for you, or (2) you actually know how to code but you want to maintain access to our community and future courses and content updates. If you just want to try us out or maybe learn a few things (like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript), our Subatomic plan is the perfect place to start. We'll be continually adding new content to that plan, too, so if you keep your subscription active you'll keep receiving new things to learn!

If you're taking your goals to learn to code seriously, but you're not sure if you care about receiving in-depth code reviews, mentoring sessions, office hour access, and the other career prep features we include in our Molecular plan, you'll want to consider our Atomic plan. It gives you access to our Full Stack JavaScript bootcamp curriculum, which includes over 400 activities, 14 topics (like React, Node, Express, MySQL, etc.), and over 50 labs for you to complete. You just really like learning for the sake of learning, or maybe you're already working in technology but just want to learn a new skillset.

If you do want personalized support but you have a job (part-time or full-time) that you can't afford to quit right now so you're looking for a self-paced, flexible learning option, then the Molecular plan was quite literally designed for you. It has personalized support and service features built-in to the monthly price. This means you receive two 1-on-1 mentoring sessions per month (a $198/mo value by itself), the ability to receive personalized, in-depth code reviews on key lab assignments and portfolio projects, and your Covalence Antidegree (contingent upon passing your final assessment). This plan is designed for students that want to complete our Full Stack bootcamp at a part-time pace without the added stress of quitting their jobs or locking themselves into a long-term loan or massive price tag like those that our competitors have for their programs.

If you're someone that knows this is what you want to do (start a new career in Software Development) and you want to get there as fast as humanly possible, then you're looking for our fully immersive Catalyst program.

If you're still not sure, just reach out to us for help and guidance. It's what we're here for, and we're always happy to help!

Yep! You can start (or stop) your Subatomic, Atomic, or Molecular plans whenever you need. You can self-manage your plan settings in your Profile in Gravity. If you need assistance, just let us know! (Note: Catalyst students must be admitted to the program, and there are specific start dates for the program.)

You're perfect - and you've come to the right place! Our entire purpose is to train complete novices into employable software developers, no matter how much previous experience you bring to the table. Of course, it always helps if you have some previous experience, but it is absolutely not necessary! If you don't believe us, give our 30-day free trial of our Subatomic plan a try and see how much you can learn in 30 days ;)

Haha, we're really glad you asked! It's pretty simple: we think what we've built here is really great. Our curriculum and instruction has literally changed students' lives, and we want to make that as affordable as we possibly can while still staying in business. At the end of the day, everything we do is for you - our students. We haven't raised a boatload of investment money that we have to produce a return on like almost all of our other bootcamp competitors. We set our prices based on what we need to to pay responsible, living wages and benefits to our full-time instructors and staff so we can keep doing this (and improving it with new features, courses, and more) for as long as we possibly can. Our prices are set for you, not investors, potential buyers, or anyone else. If that sounds good to you, come join us. We don't think you'll regret it.

Absolutely not! We really hate this slimy marketing tactic that others in the industry tout as if it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. If you really read the agreements surrounding these "guarantees", you'll notice it's not a guarantee at all. It just sounds really good (too good to be true, even) to get you in the door as a prospect. You may not even be eligible for the guarantee, and chances are you won't remain eligible for it. If you do everything they ask you to do in the "Eligibility Requirements" for said guarantee, you're going to definitely get a job. If you don't do those things to a "T", you're no longer eligible for a refund. Oh, and it's not a job they're guaranteeing: they only guarantee you a job OFFER. It doesn't matter if that job offer doesn't pay you enough or if it is out of range for your own requirements in the job search. If it fits their own definition of a job offer, then they've fulfilled their obligation of the guarantee and no longer have to give you a refund, even if you don't accept the job. See? Slimy, innit?

At Covalence, instead of spending time with lawyers coming up with shady marketing gimmicks, we spend our time on you: teaching you want you need to know to be successful as a developer. We're also real with you: landing that job is going to be hella hard, but we're here with you every step of the way, and we teach you the tools and topics you need to know to produce value for any employer on day one. What you do with those tools and topics are, ultimately, up to you. Guarantee be damned.

You can. Let's say you start out just giving us a try with our Subatomic plan. You decide that you really want to keep learning more with us (or receive more personalized support, like in-depth code reviews from instructors on your labs). In your case, you'll simply upgrade to the Atomic (or Molecular) plan. Just cancel your current plan and sign up for your new one in Gravity, or let us know if you want us to do it for you. We do not recommend doing this frequently, but if you know you want to upgrade (or downgrade) to a new plan and stay there, it can make sense to switch. (Note: Catalyst students have a different answer to this question that's covered in the Student Handbook.)

For those of you interested in becoming employable, entry-level Full Stack JavaScript developers in only 12 weeks, never fear - Covalence's Catalyst program is still here! Our main marketing focus has simply shifted to accomodate students that can't necessarily quit their jobs or dedicate three entire months to a complete career change. For those that can, though, we've got you covered with our time-tested, life-changing program.

If you pass your final assessment, you will have the option to cancel your current plan at the end of the billing cycle in which you passed the assessment and maintain full access for the price of the Subatomic plan (either $25/mo or $250/year). Catalyst students receive six months of access after graduating at no additional cost.

Atomic students cannot submit labs for official review, so they cannot receive Covalence's Antidegree certificate upon completing the curriculum. Molecular students are eligible for the Antidegree certificate after submitting your reviewable labs for instructor review and passing our final assessment. Molecular students must purchase their final assessment package for $395, which includes up to three attempts to pass the assessment. This fee accounts for the personalized instruction necessary to prep, proctor, grade, and review each assessment attempt with you. Catalyst students also need to submit their labs for review while progressing through the course, but they receive their final assessment for no additional charge. If you have any questions about this (or about choosing a plan), please reach out! We're more than happy to help.

All of our subscription plans (Subatomic, Atomic, and Molecular) are self-paced, so it totally depends on how much time you spend learning the material and interacting with your instructors in the Covalence community. For our subscription-based plans, there are no time limits or restrictions. You can take as long as you need to learn the material and master it; however, there are some rough guidelines that we can set with you when you start (if you need help setting a schedule for yourself).

Our Subatomic plan is meant to provide an introduction to various software development topics in perpetuity, so it's not meant to be "completed". At the time of writing this answer, we currently offer a "Front End Fundamentals" course that teaches the fundamentals of web development (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) in the same format as our bootcamp curriculum. Over time, however, we will be adding more courses that span other introductory and advanced topics. In order to maintain access to the content and our community, you'll need to keep an active Subatomic subscription that's either paid monthly ($25/month) or annually ($250/year).

Our Atomic and Molecular plans should take anywhere from 6 to 12 months to complete. On average, our students complete these programs in about 10 months. If you spend approximately 20 hours per week learning with us, it should take you approximately 7 months to complete everything, but each student is different. The important part is that you carve out serious blocks of time each week to dedicate to learning this material and completing the assignments.

Our Catalyst program is a full-time, fully immersive, fully online program that most closely resembles an in-person learning option in its duration, intensity, and outcomes. In Catalyst, we expect our students to spend a minimum of 40 hours per week learning. It is recommended that you have as much overlap during normal business hours (approximately 8 AM - 6 PM Central) so that we can support you as much as you need, and there are attendance requirements for the daily webinar office hours for our Catalyst students. The Catalyst program has a strict 12-week program duration, so you would start and finish the program in 12 weeks. We recommend this option for students that are either unemployed or are looking to make a very swift career change as fast as they possibly can. It is not recommended to hold even a part-time job while you are in our Catalyst program. If you want the added benefit of earning money through your day job while learning this new skill with us, we strongly recommend our Molecular program.

You don't actually need a powerhouse of a computer to code. We recommend having at least 8GB of RAM (memory), 128GB of SSD storage, and either MacOS X or Windows 10 as the operating system. You won't be able to use a Chromebook or iPad, and if you're a Linux user, we unfortunately can't support any of those distributions while you're in the program.

Any Apple computer built in the last ~4 or so years (as long as it meets those requirements for RAM and storage) will work just fine for our program. If you're planning on learning iOS-specific development after our course, you'll need to buy an Apple computer for XCode.

If you're more familiar with Windows, we recommend refining your search to computers with at least an Intel i5 processor (or equivalent performance) and bumping up the RAM to 16GB, if you can. If you have a budget or specific computers in mind, you can always send 'em our way by asking for feedback in our community, and we'll let you know whether they would work or not.
