Our programs aren’t easy, but they also aren’t out-of-reach for dedicated learners. Our Academic team of subject matter experts, facilitators and coaches will guide you through the material and provide help along the way. Our Learner Services team also checks in with learners to make sure they’re on the right track.
We strive to provide enough support to our learners; however, your success depends on you! Don’t enter a Kenzie program lightly — but if you put in the work and take advantage of the resources we provide, you’ll set yourself up for great success.
