Admissions Process

Boot camp admissions process

The Divergence Academy cyber security and data science training programs are like no other in scope and skills-intensity. Divergence Academy student candidates have a knack for the technical and a passion for Predictive Analytics and Security. The boot camp admission process is how we get to know each other. Please see our academic calendar for boot camp application deadlines.

Step 1: Research

Use our info sessions, workshops, prep courses and scheduled visits to build your security industry insight and learn what makes Divergence Academy different. Call an Admissions Counselor at (214) 997-6100 to discuss any questions.


Step 2: Apply

Our course application is non-technical and tells us about your background, your aspirations, and how we will best be able to assist you. While some form of advanced degree is helpful, we put our top priority on technical and analytical ability.


Step 3: Technical Interview

This step is important in determining your fit and readiness for our immersive boot camps. While you’re not expected to be an expert, you do need a technical foundation to work from. Our optional technical challenges are a great way to get started.


Step 4: Decision

You’ll be notified of an enrollment decision within 5 days of your completion of Steps 2 & 3. Your acceptance package would include instructions and documents for session selection, enrollment and payment of deposit.


Step 5: Prepare

We offer optional study guides to help you prepare for Divergence Academy’s training programs. Taking advantage of workshops and prep courses in advance of the first day will also help you get up to speed—and become part of the Data Science or Cyber Security communities.
