What Our Learners have to say...
It’s a really great and remarkable experience throughout the application process. Each and every candidate will get an opportunity to share about the challenges they have faced during their work tenure or during a part of their life. Generation is a chance to break through to lead life with success.
Junior Web Developer
I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. The application process has been very clear and organized from beginning to end. I can sense that the culture at Generation USA is one that is built on inclusivity, growth and encouragement.
Junior Cloud Practitioner
I enjoyed doing the video interviews. It gave me the opportunity to focus on the important things I wanted to address. The process was also fast, and there was not a lot of waiting and wondering if I was in or not. This was the most professional process I have done!

Frequently Asked Questions
What obstacles might you face?
As we work to rapidly scale our program offerings to meet the growing needs of the communities we serve, there may be instances where cohorts fill rapidly, cohort dates shift and/or you may be added to the Generation USA waitlist to attend our programs.
We have applicant resources in place like our Enrollment Coach Team where you can ask questions and receive the support you need to be successful and navigate the application, admission and enrollment process.
You may also encounter challenges throughout your Generation journey, as a learner and Generation alum. Please refer to our Student Hub for resources to learn more about Generation, career planning as well as regional and government support networks like SNAP, local housing authorities and how to access affordable childcare.
What happens if the cohort I want is full?
You will be notified via email if your desired cohort is full. You may choose another one or wait until new dates and programs are added.
What happens if the cohort date changes?
You will be notified via email if there are any date changes to a cohort you are accepted into. In some instances, we hold weekly sessions to help prepare you for program success as you wait for your postponed cohort to begin. If applicable, that information will also be emailed to you.
You may also be given the opportunity to join another cohort, or you can proactively select another one from the list of available offerings via the cohort selection webform.
Can I opt in to the waitlist?
Yes! If you do not see any programs or dates that work for you, you may choose to join our waitlist. When we add new offerings, you will be notified via email.
Who can I contact for help?
You may contact our admissions team with general questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have already started the application, you will have a dedicated Enrollment Coach available to answer questions you may have and assist you through the process.
What do Enrollment Coaches do?
Enrollment coaches are here to support you through the application process and help you prepare for success in one of our programs. They use the information you give in your application to help determine the best program and schedule for you and provide personalized advice.
