"iX wasn’t a "cost", but rather an "investment" in my life. I gained invaluable technical skills, work experience, self-confidence, and motivation - all integral for continued success."

iXperience helped me get extremely competitive investment banking internships as I was able to showcase an app that I had built in my resume. Perhaps more importantly, iXperience encouraged me to pursue my entrepreneurial interest. I have since started a small video ad agency while maintaining my current job.Read Sabra's full blog post View Sabra on LinkedIn
I landed a summer internship in software development, and I can credit most of that to my experience in Cape Town. Not only did I learn how to apply my coding skills in the real world, but I also learned a lot about myself: how to be confident and curious when I don’t always feel like a master.Read Kate's full blog post View Kate on LinkedIn
Partaking in the Management Consulting course was one of the best educational decisions I have ever made, and pivotal in my following career moves. My time at iX laid down the foundation for me to get a place as a Summer Business Analyst at McKinsey London. The biggest learning outcome I got from iX was a growth mindset and after graduation, instead of playing it safe, I leapt into starting my own company.Read Christopher's full blog post View Christopher on LinkedIn

iXperience has a need-blind admissions policy, which means we don't consider an applicant's financial situation when making their admissions decision—we decide based on the strength of an application alone. If you indicate that you'll be applying for financial aid in the application, you'll have the opportunity to fill out a separate financial aid application after you submit your program application.
We grant aid based on an applicant's demonstrated need, which is calculated based on their family income and a variety of other factors. Financial aid packages can be up to 30% of your summer tuition fee depending on your needs. If you are granted aid, it will be deducted off of your program fees. Financial aid awards cannot be used to pay the program deposit.
During your application you will need to select if you are applying for financial aid and you will then have to complete a separate application to be eligible. We will release your financial aid package within two weeks of releasing your application decision.
As a part of your application, we will ask you to disclose any other aid you've received to do iXperience, which may affect your iX aid package. Additionally, if your university has a partnership with iXperience and you are eligible for aid through your university, then we may not consider you for direct iX aid.
There is no official income cut-off for financial aid eligibility. Since eligibility for need-based financial aid is determined by many factors, including the family’s income, family size and number of children in college, we encourage you to apply if you are concerned about your ability to pay. Family income includes both taxed and untaxed income. Total income is based on the Adjusted Gross Income listed on the federal tax return plus all untaxed income (i.e., tax-deferred pension contributions, social security benefits, child support received, tax exempt interest). In cases of divorced or separated families, the incomes from both parents are considered in determining total family income.
