Debt-Free Computer Science Degree at Lambda School

Are you considering a major in computer science or something related to technology?

What if I told you that you could pursue a high quality program that would prepare you to be a software engineer with no up-front cost. Lambda School provides just that for students, a debt-free computer science degree!

Lambda School is a new start-up college alternative that was founded in Silicon Valley. The classes are completely online, so anyone with an internet connection can take classes. Instead of tuition, Lambda School offers an Income-Sharing Agreement option (it should be noted that students also have the option of paying $20,000 in tuition with no post-graduation tuition obligation).

What is the ISA (Income-Sharing Agreement) all about?

Once students have a job and are earning at least $50,000 per year, they pay back 17% of their income for two years. The amount of tuition that you could possibly pay is capped at $30,000, so even if you make a lot more money, you won’t have to pay back more than $30k. This also means that Lambda School has a vested interest in helping you get a job after graduation!
