In partnership with Louisiana State University's Digital and Continuing Education division, Louisiana State University students will be able to enroll in certificates in Cybersecurity and Web Development. The part-time program will take six months to finish, and students will receive a certificate from Fullstack Academy and Louisiana State University upon completion.

"Together, Fullstack and Louisiana State University are working to close the skills gap by enabling Louisiana companies to hire Louisiana talent with cutting-edge skills, as opposed to outsourcing their IT needs," said David Yang, Fullstack Academy co-founder.

"With more than 8,000 open positions in these fields in Louisiana, this partnership aligns with Zovio's focus on identifying the most meaningful ways to enhance learner experiences and deliver strong outcomes for higher education institutions, employers, and learners," said Greg Finkelstein, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

Fullstack Academy, which became part of Zovio in 2019, and is one of the top coding bootcamps in the country, offers full-time and part-time programs in web development and cybersecurity. In 2016, Fullstack Academy launched Grace Hopper Academy, the first all-women coding bootcamp in New York City and the first nation-wide to offer a deferred tuition model.
