Frequently Asked Questions

We strongly believe that everyone with the right motivation and commitment to building a career deserves a shot at success. However, immediate acceptance is not always guaranteed.  Acceptance may be immediate or deferred based on previous academic history.

There are 3 main criteria used to evaluate acceptance: 

  1. Your previous academic history: In order to be granted immediate acceptance, prospective students must have either a 2.0 GPA or higher from high school OR a 2.0 GPA or higher from their most recent college transcript. Students with a lower academic performance history may be offered a deferred acceptance pathway to Admissions.

    We understand that many adult learners need to find the right time in their life to pursue their educational goals. If your previous academic history was over 10 years ago or had a personal hardship during that time, we encourage you to speak with your Admissions Advisor to review your options.

  2. Your CIAT application: Our Admissions team reviews your online application and Statement of Purpose as a strong consideration for acceptance. CIAT encourages prospective students to share their motivation, passion for building a career in the growing technology field. 

  3. Your one-on-one Admissions interview: In order to maintain our high graduation and job placement rates, we only accept career-focused individuals ready to commit to CIAT’s rigorous curriculum. 

If you are not granted full acceptance, your eligibility could be contingent upon the completion of a 2-week CIAT Readiness course or deferred until a later date with a clear path of action of what is needed prior to re-applying. 

Your Statement of Purpose letter should be between 250-500 words.

Please check your submission for spelling and grammatical errors prior to submitting. 

The Statement of Purpose submission is designed for us to learn more about you as an incoming student, identify ways to support you in our accelerated career-focused programs, and help you take the first steps in building your personalized career plan.
