Take the first step toward earning your Bachelor’s Degree today

Make School is an inclusive and welcoming college that takes a different approach to admissions. Rather than focus on standardized test scores and grades, the selection process takes a holistic view of your experiences and achievements-both inside and outside of the classroom. The application, requirements, and admissions process is the same whether you plan to enroll as an On-Campus or Online* student.

Generally speaking, we are looking for:

  • Strong work ethic
  • Passion for learning
  • Growth mindset
  • Collaborative spirit
  • Love for building things
  • Desire to solve problems or puzzles
  • Excitement about being on the forefront of tech

One very important thing to note: while we value prior programming experience, we do not require it. In fact, our admissions process was designed to welcome programmers of all levels.

We see the admissions process as a coaching opportunity where we can help every student gain the abilities needed to succeed in our program and in life. Our students have varying levels of exposure to computer science before starting at Make School but we make it a priority to ensure that you feel prepared for day one, whatever your previous experience.

Apply Now

The application is the same for both On-Campus and Online students. You will select your enrollment type after you are admitted.
