Cindy, there are many flavors of UX; some UXers code while other do not. You do not need coding to be an active and contributing UX designer working on a team developing products and services. Experience is best learned by doing. Aside from taking course of online in human factors, I’d stay away from schools that offer to make you a fully competent UX designer (no prior experience required) in some short months. Read everything online at places like Medium and Smashing Magazine; connect with an experienced UX designer as a mentor; network with UXers through LinkedIn and Twitter; attend local, national and international conferences (if you can afford the latter). Remember that UX requires becoming the end user, having empathy for their pain points, providing them solutions that solve problems and that simplicity of interface, flow and user journeys is best and that ultimately requires insight through interviews research and data. Not dinging UXers that program, more power to them, they are gifted but concentrating on all the things i’ve listed while also keeping current on tools for wireframing, prototyping and gathering user specific data is a full time job. Be a master of one craft not two even if they are the progression in product development that duality may dilute your expertise. This has been my walk so I’m speaking from personal experience. Work at it hard and good luck!
