At Merit America, our mission is to support learners in their transition from low-wage jobs to family-sustaining careers they’re passionate about. We believe that cost should never be an obstacle to achieving your career dreams, and we are committed to removing barriers to create opportunities that are accessible to everyone.

After careful consideration, we made the decision to discontinue our Success Sharing Agreement as a way for learners to cover the cost of our Java Development program. We remain committed, however, to providing learners with the best possible options for covering the cost of our program. We believe in offering financing solutions that are not only accessible but also learner-friendly, and we are actively exploring alternative options that will meet our learners’ needs and aspirations.

During this transition, we will have limited spots available in our Java Development career track for the foreseeable future. We have a limited number of 2024 Java Development spots available for qualified Amazon Career Choice participants. If you are a current Amazon employee, or become employed by Amazon and are eligible for Career Choice, we welcome you to apply for one of our 2024 programs. Click here to learn more.

To those who have been patiently waiting for their chance to join our Java Development program, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are grateful for your understanding and support. 

Our promise to you is transparency and regular updates. We will provide another update mid-year as we continue our search for the ideal financing solution. Your journey and success are of utmost importance to us, and we are working diligently to find a solution that empowers you to achieve your career goals with Merit America.

By doing so, you’ll be among the first to know when updates are available. We also encourage you to explore our other career tracks with cohorts launching throughout the year, including our new track in Cybersecurity.

Stay tuned for more updates, and thank you for being a valued part of the Merit America community. Your success is our success, and we’re committed to helping you thrive in your new career.
