Hackbright Withdrawal/Refund Policy
A student has the right to withdraw from Hackbright Academy at any time.  If the student withdraws from the course, Hackbright will remit a pro-rata refund for the unused portion of the tuition less the non-refundable down payment paid.  The amount of the refund is determined by deducting the non-refundable down payment from the total tuition charge, then dividing the remainder by the number of days in the course to calculate the daily charge.  The refund is the amount in excess of what the student owes for total days of instruction completed.  The date of withdrawal is the date of cancellation and is determined as the date the student notifies the school of the decision to cancel.  The student will be charged for all hours attended.

Hackbright Academy

Hackbright Academy is the leading engineering school for women located in San Francisco, California. We were founded in 2012 with a single purpose — to give women of diverse backgrounds the power and skills to build a long and successful career in the tech industry. We partner with like-minded organizations and companies so that our impact has the farthest possible reach and remain committed to the continued growth in the communities we serve.

Since 2012, Hackbright has been offering the Full-Time Software Engineering Program, a 12-week accelerated software development training program exclusively for women to learn Python, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, OOP, TDD, pair programming, Git and the Flask web framework. In addition to the full-time program, Hackbright offers a Part-time Software Engineering Program to give working professionals the same opportunity to learn.

Hackbright's Prep Course is designed to give women a foundation in programming, a taste of life as a coder, and prepare them for the bootcamp application process.
