  • What's the cost?
    You no longer need to choose between tuition and living expenses. At PreSales Academy we are committed to breaking the barriers that in the past made starting a new career seem almost impossible. As your career partners, we offer you the option to waive the program tuition until you get a high-paying job in tech. You have two tuition options. You may either pay upfront tuition or after graduating the program (Income Share Agreement). Upfront tuition option: $4,995 this amount is due either entirely upfront upon enrolling in the program, or in two installments. This option is non-refundable after beginning Stage 2 of the program. Income Share Agreement (ISA) option: 10% of your monthly income capped at $10,000 total or 14 months of payments (whichever occurs first). You only make payments if you are earning $75,000/year ($6,250 per month) or more — your income is regularly verified. Note, most of our graduates receive starting compensation of $100,000/year or more. With the ISA option a commitment fee of $400 is due prior to beginning the program. The ISA option is available to a limited number of participants in each cohort and is only available to individuals based in the US. All interested applicants are required to complete an additional admissions step before enrollment. While other programs may cost less there's a reason for the difference. We provide a proven, high-touch program that delivers results - getting you the job. We keep cohort sizes small to ensure you're always fully supported, during and after the program.
  • How often do you have cohorts?
    We start a new cohort every two months or so. For 2024, we will have cohorts starting in February, April, July, September, and November. If you are interested in joining a specific cohort, we recommend you apply early since our cohorts do fill up.
