FAQs Frequently Asked Questions

A list of our frequently asked questions. Can't find what you're looking for? Call or text us at 307-222-9791 or shoot us an email.

  • General
  • What is Array?

    Array, School of Technology and Design is Wyoming's first private accelerated technology and design school. We currently offer a six-month, full-time Full Stack Web Development course.
  • Where is Array located?

    We are located on the fourth floor inside the historic Paramount Building at 1607 Capitol Avenue. To visit us, take the stairs up from the coffee shop on the ground floor and follow the signs that point to The Second Floor, the coworking space that occupies floors 2-4.
  • I'd like to learn more and see the school. Can I schedule a meeting?

    Absolutely! You can setup a meeting or tour with us by calling or texting at 307-274-4500 or simply shoot us an email. We usually get back to all requests within 24-48 hours.
  • Is Array licensed and accredited by the Board of Education?

    Yes and no. We do have a Chapter 1 Private School License issued to us by the State of Wyoming to legally operate our school as a private entity. However, we chose not to become accredited for many reasons that include us not being associated with the state budget or curriculum guidelines.

    Technology moves at an exponential rate, and as a private entity, this allows us to be 100% in the driver's seat with how our courses and curriculum are designed as things change. We're training our students for a very fast-paced industry, and not being accredited allows us to move just as quickly as the technology industry does which gives our students an education that is aligned with current industry trends.
  • Do you accept credits or will other school's take yours?

    Our courses are not credit-bearing. Array does not accept hours or credit from other institutions through a transfer of credit, challenge examinations, achievement tests, or experiential learning. Courses taken at Array are unlikely to count as transfer credit at another institution.
  • Do you offer online classes?

    No, all of our courses are taught in our classroom at our downtown Cheyenne campus.
  • Will Array help me get a job after I graduate?

    Yes! It is in our best interests, and yours of course, to get a job after graduation. We are building our network of employers which includes established companies, startups, and we will even provide freelancing advice during the last month of school.

    We want you to get a job as much as you do and is a shared goal for both of us.
  • Are your classes full-time or part-time?

    At the moment, our only Full Stack Web Development course is a full-time commitment requiring up to 40 hours of classroom time between Monday - Friday.
  • How much homework should a student expect to get per week?

    Students should plan on spending 0 to 10 hours on homework per week.
  • What are the classroom hours?

    Class begins promptly at 9AM and ends at 5PM Monday - Friday.
  • How many students are in the course?

    Our class maximum is 8.
  • Full Stack Web Development Course
  • How much is the tuition and what is included?

    Tuition is $15,000 for the six-month course and includes an Apple MacBook (yours to keep after graduation) and a full-time membership to The Second Floor's coworking space which includes a large array of awesome amenities.
  • The tuition seems expensive?

    $15,000 is most certainly not cheap. However, when comparing our tuition to other schools that teach similar six-month full-stack programs you will find that Array has one of the (if not the lowest) tuition costs in the nation. Most programs range from $17,000 - $24,000 and usually, do not include a laptop.

    Our location in Wyoming allows us to keep the costs as low as possible and provides a low cost of living and high quality of life to faculty and students.
  • When are the next start dates?

    We currently have not formally announced our next start date but are expecting to offer more courses in 2018.
  • APPLYING TO ARRAY

    Our application process, which is described in detail on our admissions page, takes generally 14-30 days to complete depending mostly upon the speed at which the student completes or provides the necessary items.

    Yes. All of are courses are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis and will close when the class is full. Otherwise, the admissions deadline is 30 days before the first meeting of the course.
  • Do I have to pay the application fee again if I am not accepted the first time?

    No. Our application fee of $50 is non-refundable, however in the event, you are not accepted and wish to apply again later, you will not have to pay the fee again. There is no timeline as to when this expires - pay once, apply as often as you'd like.
  • Financial Aid & Scholarships
  • How do I pay for my course at Array?

    We understand how important this question is and we are also aware that every prospective student's finances are going to be different. There are a couple different paths that students may take to finance their education which includes personal loans, student loans, or payment plans.

    Each option will be a better fit depending on each student. We are working with a couple of local and national partners on assistance with student financing, and we will work with each student on a personal level to provide feedback and recommendations on the best course of financing their education.
  • Do you accept Federal or State Financial Aid?

    Array does not participate in federal or state financial aid programs and we do not provide institutional financing. We do provide information on a range of financing options through independent, private funding sources, which you can request from us during the application process.
  • Are scholarships available?

    At this time, there are currently no scholarships offered through Array. We are actively looking for local partners and businesses who would like to sponsor scholarships for future students. We will make those scholarships and requirements publically viewable when they become available.

    There are a few scholarships for coding schools available at a national level that can be found searching Google and can most often be applied to the tuition of the school you want to attend including Array.
