The upfront tuition cost for Hack Reactor’s onsite 12-week program is $17,980. Additionally, several financing plans are available. These include the Skills Fund loan and the Climb Credit loan. Hack Reactor also offers an income share agreement. Students who opt for income sharing agree to pay 10% of their income for 48 months, only after they begin making $50,000 per year or more. The income share agreement is capped at 1.75% of total tuition cost, at which point students no longer need to pay. Students who pay upfront end up paying the least in most cases, but income sharing and loans can reduce the upfront financial burden of the course. The income share agreement requires a $2,000 deposit upfront.
