New England Council member Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has partnered with Flatiron School, a New York City-based coding boot camp. The two groups are working together on a three-part initiative to train students with in-demand coding skills.
First, the schools will work together to expand Flatiron’s new online program. Second is the creation of a 3+1 program in which on-campus SNHU students will complete three years with SNHU, six months with Flatiron, and their final semester in an internship or apprenticeship. The 3+1 program is scheduled to begin next fall. Finally, the two groups will work together to create a coding boot camp to be held in-person at the SNHU Nashua campus. In addition, SNHU and Flatiron will be applying to participate in a U.S. Department of Education experiment that will allow boot camps and accredited colleges to partner together and still qualify for federal financial aid.
“Our mission is focused on the success of our students. By offering this opportunity, we can position our students for career opportunities and future growth and success in their selected fields,” said Southern New Hampshire University President Paul LeBlanc.
The New England Council and commends SNHU on their efforts to prepare students for success in the 21st century workforce.
