Gainful Employment Disclosure
The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) requires that all institutions participating in federal Title IV student financial assistance programs publicly disclose certain data for all Gainful Employment programs, as designated by DOE definitions.
Gainful Employment Programs
Gainful employment programs are those "that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." Public institutions are required to report this information for all undergraduate and graduate programs that are Title IV eligible and that lead to certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates or specialist awards.
Degree programs at all levels are not considered to be gainful employment programs.
Data privacy/suppression: If the number of students who completed a Gainful Employment Program during the award year was less than ten, for privacy reasons, the college or university should not disclose to the public the median debt amounts and the on-time completion rates. Because placement rate information is reported based on system standards and methodology, total employment and related employment rates are not disclosed if the number of students employed is less than six.
