Thank you, Maggie!

Hi Anonymous,

We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on our admissions process. Your feedback is important to us, as it helps us improve the student enrollment experience.

After you fill out the form on our website, our thank you page notes that an admissions advisor will reach out to you soon at the phone number provided. Our advisors strive to provide timely admissions counseling to all those who would like to learn more about our programs but only contact applicants during regular business hours. We apologize if calling during our business hours did not work with your current schedule, as we always want to accommodate potential students and call at the time that works best for them. 

We regret that you no longer want to receive email correspondence regarding our program, and we do want to assure you that if you opted-out of our marketing emails using the unsubscribe button, you should not receive any additional communications. However, we would like the opportunity to speak with you so that we can look you up in our system and confirm that you were successfully unsubscribed. Please reach out to me directly at (510) 306-1218 so that we can get this matter taken care of for you.

Hi Anonymous,

We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback about your experience. We know that your cohort had to make a small schedule change toward the end of your program, and we regret any inconvenience this may have caused. 

Class schedules are subject to change, and on the occasion that a change is needed, this can affect lecture schedules in order to minimize the overall impact on the student experience and learning process. We also constantly update our curriculum, and as technology is ever-changing, this sometimes requires us to update our materials during the course of the program. We value our instructors' skills and their efforts toward keeping our curriculum in-line with the latest market demands.

Our career curriculum often integrates into the existing class schedule because we strive to give all students access to our professional development services including career coaching, portfolio reviews, resume and social media profile support, and technical interview training.

As you mention, our instructors come from a variety of backgrounds within the field of web development and will often have different teaching styles. Our classes are recorded for quality assurance, and weekly feedback forms allow us to hear directly from students to make sure they are on pace and receiving a favorable teaching experience. We also provide additional academic support in the form of free tutoring sessions, online and in-person office hours, direct contact with instructors and TAs, and optional one-on-one meetings with student support or career services team members that students can schedule at a time that works for them.

We are sorry to hear that you had difficulty finding a time to attend tutoring sessions, and we'd like to better understand how we can accommodate you and other students who may have challenging schedules. We would also like to know how else we can equip you for success at this time. Please contact me directly at (510) 306- 1218.

Hi Anonymous, thank you for sharing with us. We take feedback very seriously and regret to hear about your experience. 

Our refund policy as well as the enrollment agreement (EA) you signed when you paid your deposit does note that $1,000 of the deposit is not refundable. While we never want our students to drop from the program, we are transparent about the nonrefundable part of the deposit so that students are aware of how a refund would be processed if they choose to drop. By making clear the non-refundable portion of the deposit at the time of enrollment, we also ensure that students reserving a seat feel confident in their decision to enroll. This is important since that seat will not be available to any other student interested in the program.
 
Our admissions and student success teams receive many phone calls and emails during the day, and do their best to ensure that they address each person’s concerns in a timely manner. We are sorry that you had difficulty getting answers to your questions. We can assure you that our staff does not block phone numbers nor intentionally ignore calls—student support is our top priority and we always strive to be responsive. Our phone calls all funnel in through one system and do not go to our advisors’ personal phone numbers, so individual callers cannot be blocked.
 
We do apologize for any delays you experienced in email communication. It is our goal to respond within 24 to 48 hours, however, this is not always possible. We are constantly working to improve our response time to best serve the needs of both students and applicants.
 
We sincerely care about our students and always want them to feel valued, supported, and happy with their experience in our programs. Please give our program director a call at (510) 306-1218 so that we can address your concerns further.
