Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's the difference between a free account and a paid account?

    A free account gives you access to our 10 introductory courses, whereas a paid subscription gives you unlimited access to all of our courses and screencasts.

  • Is Code School a recurring subscription?

    Yes. Code School is set up as a recurring monthly subscription service, but you can cancel at any time. You will be charged each month on the day you signed up.

  • Can I pay yearly and save some cash money?

    Yep! When you enroll for a year, you save $58 — essentially getting two months for free.

  • Can an absolute beginner use Code School?

    Yes! We have several introductory courses in the beginning of each Path. We've also created a page to show you where to get started.

  • Can I pause my account if I am not using it?

    Absolutely — you can pause your account and come back to it whenever you're ready for more learning.

  • Do you offer any student, military, or non-profit discounts?

    We do offer discounts to students, military personnel, and non-profit organizations. That runs $19 per month. Verifying eligibility is a tough thing to automate, though, so just open a private discussion with us and we can get you set up.
