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: $7,000 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 $14,000 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. 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.
