Our selection process is based only on talent and motivation. We don't care what degrees you may or may not have, if you have any previous programming experience, or your ability to pay. If you possess curiosity, determination, and drive to succeed, then we want you as a Holberton student.
Our automated admissions process is completely "blind" to remove human biases. It was created specifically to identify smart, motivated people and doesn't take into account previous education, work experience, gender, ethnicity, or age. There's also no cost to apply — the only requirement is a GED or high school diploma.

"Before I came to this school, I knew virtually nothing about coding or how an operating system works internally. Now I feel I can confidently say I possess that knowledge in addition to acquiring the priceless skill of independent learning with a large support system to aid in the process."
— Angie D., cohort 7 (SF Campus)
"I chose this program over a master's degree because I only have to pay [Holberton] after I am able to get a job. Holberton offered me the chance to change careers and make a real difference in my life."
