What is an Income Sharing Agreement, and how does it work?

NOTE: The Income Sharing Agreement is not launched yet. It will be coming soon.

At Sigma School, we want to make higher education more accessible to everyone, regardless of where they live. This is why, as a Sigma School student, you get the option of not paying a cent in upfront tuition. Instead, you will pay for our program using an Income Share Agreement (ISA).

An ISA is a contract where you commit to dedicate a fixed percentage of your salary to pay for the cost of our program once you get a job and start making a living as a software professional.

Through our ISA, you agree to pay 10% of the income that you earn as a software developer, but only if you are making over USD700 a month, or USD 8,400 a year.

If for instance, upon graduating from Sigma School, you get a job paying USD30,000/year (USD2,500/month) you will pay USD250/month (or 15% of USD2,500)

You start paying the month after you have started your job, and will continue doing so until you've reached the cap of USD7,000.

You will not be required to pay that month if:

Your income drops below USD700 a month
You are unemployed (but actively seeking for employment)
You are not able to work due to an illness or disability
