Alternative Payment Options


$0 USD

until you’re employed!

Income sharing is an agreement between you, The Data Incubator, and our partner, Leif. You attend the program with the understanding that you’ll pay back your tuition after you’ve completed the program and have a job where you’re earning at least $40,000 per year.

Income sharing is currently only available to individuals with a US Social Security number.

If you decide to participate in income sharing, your monthly payments will begin after you complete the program and begin your job, and will be based on a percentage of your income.

If you have more questions about income sharing, contact Leif at 646-760-3318, email them directly at or visit their site here.

Contingent Payment Plan (CPP): In exchange for education today, a student agrees to repay a set monthly amount, as their monthly income qualifies, after they complete (or withdraw from) the program.

  • Attend school without paying the full tuition cost upfront.
  • Applying does not affect a student’s credit score.
  • No co-signer is needed.
  • A student only makes payments when their gross income meets or exceeds a set minimum amount within a calendar month.
  • There are no payments or penalty while a student is unemployed or earning below the minimum monthly income threshold.
  • A contract is in ‘Payment Term’ from the program completion date (or withdrawal date, if applicable), until the contract is fulfilled.
  • Students must engage with the Leif platform to report income and maintain a linked bank account while ‘in payment term’ even if income isn’t qualified for a payment.
  • Not a traditional loan, there is no balance accruing interest.

If you have more questions about CPP, contact Leif at 646-760-3318 or email them directly at
