Operation Spark Partnership

The Tulane School of Professional Advancement is excited to announce our partnership with Operation Spark. As part of this agreement, graduates of the Operation Spark bootcamp will be eligible to start at Tulane with 15 credits towards their degree in Information Technology.

Operation Spark is a New Orleans-based non-profit organization that offers intensive software development training and workforce preparation to low-opportunity individuals through a bootcamp program. This application development bootcamp is designed to offer attendees the “fastest route to a career in software development.”   

The partnership establishes guidelines and procedures for the granting of undergraduate course credit to Operation Spark students who have successfully completed the Operation Spark Adult Workforce Immersion Program. Specifically, upon successful completion of the Operation Spark program, graduates will be eligible to receive prior learning credit for five (5) Tulane SoPA Information Technology undergraduate courses for a total of 15 credits:

  • CPST 1200
  • CPST 2200
  • CPST 2400
  • CPST 3410
  • CPST 3250

In doing so, Tulane SoPA Info Tech will continue the great work by our partners at Operation Spark by offering their graduates a clear and attainable path to a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology/Integrated Application Development. For more information about this agreement and this pathway for students, please visit the Tulane SoPA BS in Information Technology website or contact SoPA Information Technology Programs Dept. Director, Prof. Ralph Russo.
