Interface is proud to offer multiple financial aid options for students and employers. As of 2018, students can use their GI Bill benefits for classes!
Tuition Payment Options
Interface gives students multiple ways to pay tuition for courses 10 weeks or longer in duration.
Standard Payment Plan
Make payments directly to Interface. A down payment of 50% is required before the start of the course, then split the rest over 5 months. We’ll set up automatic payments via credit card or ACH transfer.
Pay your balance in full with a one-time payment. If you pay your tuition in full before the start of class, we will give you a 5% discount on your tuition.
Financial Support Available
Discounts on Interface School courses are available.
- Workshop Discount: If you’ve taken a 14-hour Introductory workshop, you can apply your full workshop fee of $250 toward your tuition for Foundations of Web Development.*
- Foundations Discount: If you’ve taken a Foundations or Specialization course with Interface School, you can get $500 off your next Specialization course.*
- AIGA Discount: AIGA members receive $500 off their tuition for Foundations of Web Development and/or WordPress Specialization courses.*

- Team Discount: If you are an employer and are interested in sending 2 or more employees through any Interface School course, pay full tuition for the first employee and receive $500 off the tuition for each additional employee enrolled during the same calendar session (does not have to be within the same course).
- Paid-in-full Discount: Students who pay their entire balance before the start of class will receive 5% off their tuition. This discount may be combined with other discounts.
Other options available. If you have any questions about these payment options or discounts, please contact us here or call 402-345-5025 option 5.

Tuition Reimbursement Program – Becoming a Partner Firm
The Tuition Reimbursement Program is an excellent low-risk approach for partner firms to hire talented Interface graduates. The benefits of participating in this program include:
- Screening talented junior developers for roles within your firm before others in the community,
- Lowering your cost of onboarding new talent, and
- Supporting Midwest talent development and retention efforts.
It’s easy to get started!
Step 1: Submit Interest Form
To begin the process of becoming a partner firm, submit a short interest form and an Interface representative will contact you within 1-2 business days to discuss program details.
Step 2: Review Student Resumes
Once accepted as a partner firm, you will receive student resumes to review.
Step 3: Meet Students
You will have opportunities to visit with students during scheduled one-on-one sessions. Additionally, we will share students’ course progress with you following regularly scheduled performance reviews with our staff.
Step 4: Hire Students
Upon conclusion of the course, if you decide to extend an offer of employment to a student who accepts, you will begin the monthly payout to that student for the agreed upon reimbursement amount. Partner firms are under no obligation to hire Interface graduates.
