Through our application process, you’ll learn about the Rivet School program and whether it’s a fit for you. When you’re accepted, the first thing we’ll do is help you enroll in an accredited bachelor’s degree program offered by one of our two university partners: Southern New Hampshire University and Brandman University.View degree programs
We’ll help you navigate financial aid and put together a financial plan. Most students earn their BA for less than $10,000 in out-of-pocket cost.
If you need extra support applying for aid, we’ll connect you (for free) with an independent financial aid expert.
If you’re accepted to our Pay it Forward program, you’ll pay no upfront tuition, and pay back only if and when you earn more than $40,000 per year.Learn more
Rivet School begins with a six-week (100% free) Onboarding experience.
During Onboarding, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of the Rivet School program, meet other members of your cohort, and start working on real college projects. When you successfully complete Onboarding, you’ll officially become a Riveter.
College can be hard, but at Rivet School we'll be with you every step of the way. Each fellow works hand-in-hand with a personal coach who supports no more than 50 students.
At Rivet School, you’ll never get lost in the bureaucracy. Your coach helps you work through academic challenges, set and stick to your goals, access school and community resources, and more.
Text, call, or email your coach anytime.Meet our team
