HackCville's Launch Bootcamp summer program offers a unique combination of skill building and professional development unlike any summer program available. There are two options for payment to make this program accessible and available to all. Keep reading for the details.

Launch offers two different payment options.

Our goal is to make Launch accessible and available to all.

Up-Front Tuition


Half the cost of comparable programs

  • You pay $5,000 up-front to cover the cost of the program. Comparable programs (see below) cost upwards of $10,000.
  • The cost is similar to that of taking a 9 credits of UVA classes over the summer. (In-state costs around $4,000 and out-of-state costs around $12,000.)

Salary-Based Financing

No Payments Until You Get a Job

No-risk way to level up your skills & network

  • When you find a job after the program, you pay us 1/10th of your gross salary over 9 months.
  • If your new job pays $55,000, you'll pay us $611/month for 9 months.
  • If you can't find a job after 6 months, you won't owe us anything. We don't succeed unless you do.

What's Included

  • Full access to the 9-week program curriculum, mentorship, and resources
  • 24/7 access to HackCville's two workspaces on Elliewood Avenue for the duration of the program
  • Upon completion of the program, you'll be granted HackCville membership, giving you advance access to other HackCville programs and exclusive job opportunities

"I love the endless amount of resources and guidance HackCville offers. From having members/staff take 5 minutes to sit down and talk to me, to endless workshops throughout the semester, to the random email/text messages - everyone genuinely cares about one another."

- Nina Satasiya, HackCville Program Graduate, Class of 2018
