Can I still join the Full-Time Software Engineering Immersive Program if I don't want to be a coder?

Of course! We have many students come to us who want to learn coding for various reasons, whether its to start their own company or become a "hybrid", which is business-minded individual with enhanced tech knowledge (think digital marketers or product managers). We open our doors to students like this and highly encourage this mindset, but in some cases we do not offer deferred tuition as your post-graduation work status may not fit our current scope. In this case, we will negotiate a payment plan with you prior to joining.
