Hi Ryan,
 
We strive to provide our students with ample information about our program. In our curriculum, Java is taught in Module 4 of the course which is towards the end of the program. We see that your cohort does not complete the program until December, so your class has not yet reached the point in the curriculum where Java is introduced but will do so in the coming weeks.
 
When you learn Java, a mature programming language trusted across the software industry to build safe, scalable, and robust applications, you’ll have the opportunity to take a deep dive into core Java and Object-Oriented Programming to build a foundation in common build tools for Java projects such as Maven. Although it is unlikely that one could become an expert in any technical skill in only 24 weeks, our course coverage of Java teaches students to create scalable web apps, APIs, and services.
 
Our course structure includes in-class lectures and instructor-led discussions that cover the background, history, and use of new technologies and concepts. It also includes in-class lab work that allows our students to apply their knowledge and strengthen their understanding by practicing their skills through assignments and exercises with in-person assistance from the instructor and TAs because we know that the key to truly mastering new skills is hands-on supportive training. Because real professional web development jobs require developers to teach themselves new skills and languages constantly as technologies change, some of our course assignments require students to find the answers to their own questions through independent research. This coursework helps students improve their ability to learn new skills on their own in preparation for joining the real-world field of web development.
 
Though your original instructor attended the majority of classes, unfortunately, he encountered a family emergency that prevented him from being able to continue to teach the course. Since securing your new instructor, we have been working to provide added in-depth academic support to any students who may be affected by the transition. As you have stated, our TAs are working hard to provide your class with assistance both in and outside of the classroom.

We see in our records that you spoke with our Student Success Manager after two weeks of class regarding your possible withdrawal. After further consideration, you informed the Student Success Manager that you had decided to continue in the program with added academic support in the form of two weekly tutoring sessions. Were these sessions helpful? Our refund policy can be found in our program's enrollment agreement and explains that tuition paid may only be refunded prior to the end of the first week of classes. We are transparent about our refund policy to ensure that students reserving a seat are confident in their decision to enroll and attend the course. This is important since that seat will not be available to any other student interested in the program.

Please allow us the opportunity to provide you with any assistance that we can at this time. Your feedback is important to us, and we would like to speak with you so that we can better understand and address your concerns. Please contact me directly at (913) 439-1919 so that we can provide further assistance.
