Student prerequisite knowledge/experience

Due to regulatory constraints, we are unable to accept students residing in the state of California at this time.
High school diploma (or equivalent) or a passing score on our ATB test (approved by DPSA).
Personal laptop meeting our hardware requirements. See this blog post for full details of our laptop specs.
Accepted students will be given requirements for software to be downloaded. Most of that software will not have any cost as the class will focus on teaching web development using open source technologies. For students using Macbook Pros, you may be required to purchase additional software for the server-side portion (2nd half) of the bootcamp that will cost $100 or less. Instructors will advise which tools need to be downloaded after class begins.
All accepted students will be assigned pre-work that is expected to be completed in the weeks prior to the first class session. We target having classes full approximately six weeks before the first week of class in order to give students time to complete the pre-work on a part-time basis.

There are two tuition plans at NSS: Standard Tuition or Nashville Opportunity Tuition. A limited number of grants and scholarships are also available for students from underrepresented groups.
Tuition for this Part-time Web Developer Bootcamps is $13,125.
We request a $5,000 deposit on acceptance of our offer of admission. The balance is due at enrollment on the first day of class. You may also elect to pay the balance during the twelve months of the program through an approved payment plan, as discussed below. With each payment option, you retain the flexibility to apply to take the second half of the program during the day. See below for other financing and more detailed payment options.
Nashville Opportunity Tuition
There are five seats available in each evening bootcamp under the Nashville Opportunity Tuition.
Our Nashville Opportunity Tuition allows you to defer most of the cost of your training until you graduate and go to work as a software developer. You will pay us $1,500 as a tuition deposit on acceptance to the program and then nothing more until after graduation.
This program is a mutual risk-sharing program between NSS and the Student. NSS invests in the student through a scholarship and through deferring the balance of the student's tuition until the student a) graduates and b) becomes employed as a developer. Until those conditions are met, the student does not owe NSS the tuition balance.
Once you go to work using the skills you learned at NSS, we'll work out a payment plan for you to reimburse NSS. We also have a limited number of partner companies that are willing to reimburse part or all of your tuition.
- Initial tuition deposit of $1,500, due on acceptance of our offer of admission
- $2,500 scholarship
- $9,125 tuition balance to be repaid on employment as outlined above
Selection criteria for the Nashville Opportunity Tuition includes:
- Limited to Nashville area residents or individuals who grew up in Nashville/Middle Tennessee and have strong family and personal connections to the area
- Limited to students that are committed to staying in Middle Tennessee post-graduation
- Priority is given to students whose economic circumstances would otherwise prevent them attending Nashville Software School
- Priority is also given to individuals from groups that are under-represented in tech careers (e.g. women, Veterans, Black individuals, etc.)
We offer three standard payment plans for evening students on outlined below. We can also customize a payment plan to suit your needs - the primary requirement is that we be fully paid on or before your graduation.
