We're accepting applications for future classes! We accept applicants on a rolling basis until we fill up, so submit early. Applications for our second cohort (which starts Sep 5) are due August 12.
FYI, we'll use your email address to contact you about your application status and provide other important Useful School updates.
Our classes are currently for those 18+ years old and based in the U.S. If you are outside of this audience, apply anyway—we're expanding quickly and, given our rolling admissions, favor applicants who apply early.
If there are any other aspects of your identity that you're like to share, please do so below.
This will help us tailor the curriculum to you! If you'd like to start your own company or something similar, let us know as much/little info about that as well.
Thought-starters: What's your ideal gig? What steps will you take to achieve your goals after you graduate from Useful School?
A friend, coworker, past student? Someone specific on LinkedIn? Insta handle? Article? Somewhere else?
Examples could include specific online schools, workshops, books, articles, etc.
This typically averages to around 1-2 hours M-F, and another 10 hours Sat & Sun, but everyone's schedule is different!
This is not a factor for acceptance, but it's important that you consider this prior to finishing your app. Contributions help us run US, offset the costs for folx who cannot pay, and much more. We typically recommend considering contributing 1-5% of your current salary, but everyone's situation is different!
Thought starters: Any special considerations we should know? Feedback for us?
By submitting your app, you agree to allow us or a partner publish any interesting, anonymous data (example: an article compiling the top places applicants want to work).
