Gainful Employment Disclosures

What are Gainful Employment Programs? An educational program must lead to a degree at a non-profit or public institution or it must prepare students for "gainful employment in a recognized occupation."  Information is presented to the student about the length of each program, its estimated cost, and a way to obtain further information about the kinds of jobs available for those who complete this program and participate in the student financial assistance programs. Whether you are a current student or a prospective student, we hope that this information is helpful in making informed choices about your career and education.
