Frequently Asked Questions

are there payment plans?

At DBA we no longer offer payment plans because ultimately we don't want students to invest in our Academy that aren't financially ready.

do you have a bundle deal?

Currently all of our grades are sold separately because Elementary & High School are self paced classes but in University you follow a strict 3 month semester schedule with the rest of the class.

Since all of the grades are sold separately we highly recommend you only take one at a time & enroll in University once you are ready to scale your business.

are there group calls?

Group coaching calls and one 1:1 coaching call are ONLY offered in Design Biz Academy University.

Meet Your Design Coaches

We came together to form an inclusive, supportive, and fun designer community.
