  • Pre-Admission Course Work Requirement for the Following Courses (Python Full Stack Bootcamp – Full-time / Part-time / Remote) – Students are given pre-admission course work for certain courses after they’ve been accepted and enroll in the program. It is designed to ensure all students start off with an introductory level of knowledge in the subject. Completion of the pre-work is mandatory and ensures a baseline level of knowledge in each class. Mastery of each subject is not expected. If a student is unable to complete the work prior to the first day of the course and seeks to cancel enrollment, he or she should refer to the Cancellation Policy.
