I would caution against even filling out an application. Like others, I did the easy little tests and phone interviews. I was "recomended for enrollement," and then they emailed a poorly worded, hokey credit card form asking for my $2500 hold money. They worded the email in a way that made you think you owed them money, so pay the invoice and hold your seat in the class! In a separate email they sent a auto-fill form -- with just a couple clicks you accepted all the terms of enrollment, and were bound to the company.
I never filled these forms out and never accepted or signed a thing. I even spoke to the rep confirming that I did not actually owe anything and that until I actually enrolled I was still in decision-making mode.
So, after reading enough about the company and weighing my options, I simply emailed the rep a "Thanks but no thanks," letter explaining that I declined to enroll and would pursue my coursework online via Udemy and Udacity, and that I appreciated their time.
She called me a day later, and "Congratulated me on pursuing my education in code." I was a little confused becuase she made it sound like I enrolled in the school. I told her thanks and sorry I couldn't go forward with UCI extension. I told her if things ever changed I would let her know. She acknowledged this and said it was ok and she understood.
A week later on they send an email (probably automated) as follows:
This is a notification that your card will be charged in 2 days.
I don't know if this was an atuo email, but it seemed pretty shady. From the enrollement email to the weird "Congratualtions" phone call to this... it's like they were trying to play dumb and act like I was enrolled.
Just avoid this type of annoyance and find some other bootcamp. Learning Fuze in Orange County has a pretty good reputation. Go there. Stay away from these shady sketchy people.
Response From: Jeffrey Howell of UC Irvine Boot Camps
Thank you for reaching out. We sincerely apologize for any miscommunication or confusion that occurred during your admissions experience.
Once a student is accepted into the program, they do receive an email explaining that in order to guarantee a seat in the class and enroll, the next step is to pay the deposit. At this point in time, you are correct that no agreement or confirmation of enrolling has been made. Students also receive an electronic agreement to sign and return should they move forward with payment/enrollment. This trusted system was chosen not only to make it easier for students to digitally sign the documents rather than having to print and scan, but also to facilitate record keeping. We are sorry if this digital format was not what you were expecting and have made a note to explain better to all students in the future. We appreciate your pointing this out.
If a student declines the program, we always call the student to learn how we can better our program. We try to maintain a relationship with even those applicants that choose to pursue other schools. The important item for us is that you are getting the education you seek. You mentioned via email that you had decided to pursue learning to code through other avenues, our advisor simply meant to congratulate you on that endeavor and let you know that our program would be here should you ever change your mind.
Regarding the auto-charge email notification, you should not have received that email as it was intended for an enrolled student. As you mentioned, we did not have your credit card information on file and so no charge could have been made. With many emails sent each day, human error does happen and we apologize for the alarm it caused.
We are constantly working to improve our processes and overall experience, and we thank you for your feedback.

When coding bootcamps started gaining popularity, we wondered if tension would arise between traditional universities and these alternative education providers. On the contrary, a trend arose and universities have now been partnering with coding bootcamps for a few years now. When the Department of Education announced the EQUIP Initiative in October 2015, these collaborations were formalized by the US government; but EQUIP is just one example amongst the myriad of strategic and independent partnerships between universities and coding bootcamps.
