No. The biggest reason why is because Take Up Code is not a school. Not in the traditional sense, anyway.

You come here to learn skills and improve yourself so you can either apply for a coding job or learn how to code your own apps. Once you can do something, instead of showing somebody a certificate, why not just show them your work instead? Your work is also a LOT more convincing.

Some schools are so expensive that you need loans. And that means you need the school to be accredited so you can get federal student aid loans. But at Take Up Code, you don’t need loans. You don’t need financing.

Maybe you’re considering taking classes at a local community college. You would probably want it to be accredited so that you can apply your credits to another college. You’ll be most likely to want to do this for general education topics such as history or language arts. But Take Up Code doesn’t offer general education classes. So you don’t need accreditation for that either.

The long answer is that if you’re looking for an accredited school, then a traditional college or university is where you should be looking. But if what you want is to learn how to code, then Take Up Code can help you.
