Gainful Employment Disclosures
The U.S. Education Department's gainful employment regulations require disclosure of certain program information to students and prospective students. Gainful employment programs are those that "prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation."
Institutions are required to report this information for all undergraduate and graduate programs that are federal student aid eligible and that lead to certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates, or specialist awards. Note: reporting is not required for undergraduate certificates and diplomas less than 16 credits and graduate certificates and specialist awards that are less than 8 credits. Degree programs at all levels are not considered to be gainful employment programs.
Regulations require disclosure of the following information for each "gainful employment" program:
- Information on occupations that the program prepares students to enter
- Program costs including tuition and fees and book and supplies
- Median federal and private loan debt of recent graduates
- On-time completion rate of recent graduates
- Job placement rate of recent graduates
This information is provided in compliance with the U.S. Department of Education final regulations as published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010 [75 FR 66665 and FR 66832] and on June 13, 2011 [76 FR 34386].
