Software Engineering Prep
The whole process, from beginning to day one of the immersive, typically takes 2-4 months. It is challenging, but it is a rewarding and incredible growth journey. When you’re admitted, you’ll know you’re among other incredible peers, all fully ready, motivated and vetted for success.

Technical Admissions Assessment Deadline
To have enough time to complete the enrollment process and pre-course, the latest you can schedule the Technical Admissions Assessment is 4 weeks prior to the immersive start date.
It is also essential that you have a strong foundation in composing and using objects, arrays, and functions, including higher order functions. You should expect questions like:
What arguments are provided to each function and what are their types?
What, if anything, gets returned out of a function?
How and when do you use anonymous functions?
What does it mean to be a higher-order function? How are they composed?
Soft skills are just as important to us as your technical ability. You should be comfortable with explaining your thought process as you work through a problem, which is a key skill for both Hack Reactor students and professional software engineers.
1-2 business days after receiving a notice about your acceptance, you’ll receive a Student Enrollment Agreement. This Enrollment Agreement is valid for seven days after receipt.
Upon completing your Enrollment Agreement, you’ll receive a program deposit invoice. In order to ensure your cohort seat, please submit your deposit within three days of receiving the invoice. If you need to defer to a later cohort, notify your admissions team or the registrar no less than three weeks prior to your original start date.
Prior to starting your Hack Reactor software engineering bootcamp, you are required to complete all online, self-paced pre-course work. Hack Reactor's Software Engineering Immersive pre-course curriculum takes 90-120 hours to complete.
Students who do not finance their immersive program can either submit their payment up-front during the first week of class or can choose to split tuition into two payments (Refer to your Enrollment Agreement for exact payment dates and amounts). San Francisco Software Engineering students will automatically have their tuition split into two payments.
Hack Reactor is the top software engineering bootcamp in the industry for producing mid-to-advanced level developers.
