How it works
We partner with career-focused programs.
We identify, assess, and partner with schools that offer skill-based education.
We offer payment options for our partner schools.
We then provide accessible, affordable payment options to attend these programs.
We align goals for better results.
Our vision is to improve the alignment of school motivations with student goals to ensure that our students see a tangible, life-changing impact from their education.
But our mission doesn’t stop when a student starts class.
On-hand support team
For questions about payments, loan terms, and more, our friendly and knowledgeable Student Success Team is available to provide support and information. We can be reached through live chat at climbcredit.com and email at firstname.lastname@example.org, 10am–8pm Monday–Friday.
For all alumni of our partner computer science and business training programs — regardless of whether or not they use our payment options — we’ve also launched ClimbTalent, a free career development platform where you can access job listings, career development resources, training tools, mentorship opportunities, and more.

At Climb, our values are in service of schools and students. We strive to uphold our values every day.
Build a better system
Incentives within the education financing system are inherently unaligned. We are part of the move to realign the goals of schools, learners, and financing companies to promote the best interest of our learners.
Teamwork is the key to success, and we'll only be able to carry out our mission if we do it together with integrity, collaboration, and trust.
Iterate and Experiment
We take calculated risks and do not shy away from large and complicated challenges — we optimize for upside impact more than downside mitigation or effort minimization. No experiment is a failure if it generates insights.
Drive Access & Inclusivity
We don’t think limited credit history or lower credit scores should keep people from an education or career. So we built financing products that are accessible to everyone — and have built Climb Credit Score, a credit scoring service that uses over 150 data points to analyze and assess credit profiles and gain a more holistic view of applicants.
Own the Solution
Accountability and ownership are key with a small team. Every person who works at Climb is a champion for our schools and learners, and when we come across challenges, our first instinct is to drive toward solutions.
We're dedicated to protecting your privacy.
As part of our commitment to data security for our learners and partners, we completed SOC 1 & 2 audits and have earned this badge.
