The school will allow its applicants go through school without initial tuition deposit. The students will however pay back a percentage of their income after they get a job. The school has a success story of over 1300 graduates with over 86% of them in the workforce.
Nigerian fintech firm, Paystack will leverage on the partnership to provide co-working spaces accessible to all applicants for reliable internet and electricity. All applicants will stand the chance of getting a job with Paystack and even Paystack merchants. Applicants hired by Paystack will not pay back the percentage required as it will be covered by Paystack.

This percentage will only be applicable only when they earn more than $50,000 a year. Applicants who never got employed, or don’t measure up to that level of income, will never pay a cent.
