Gainful Employment

Gainful Employment Disclosure

  • As of July 1, 2011, Federal Title IV regulations require all institutions of higher education to disclose completion and cost information about non-degree programs leading to gainful employment in a recognized occupation.
  • Gainful Employment programs include all programs at public and not-for-profit institutions that do not lead to a degree, that are not fully transferable to a bachelor's degree program or that are not considered to be basic skills or preparatory course work for enrollment in an eligible program.
  • Recognized Occupations are those identified by a federal Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code established by the Office of Management and Budget, by an Occupational Network (O*NET-SOC) code established by the U.S. Department of Labor, or those determined by the U.S. Secretary of Education in consultation with the U.S. Secretary of Labor.
