Gainful Employment Information

Educational institutions that offer Gainful Employment programs are required to publish specific data about each of these programs for prospective students.  The purpose of these disclosures is to help students make informed decisions about enrolling in a specific program.  The disclosures include information on program costs, published program length, on-time completion rate, placement rate for program completers, median loan debt for students who complete programs, and occupations related to the programs.

Placement Rate Methodology

Accreditor Rate: The accreditor placement rate includes non-graduate completers who are employed in the field of instruction and graduate completers who are employed in positions related to the field of instruction pursued, have entered the military, or are continuing their education.  The calculation factors in graduate completers who are seeking employment in the field for which they were instructed and those who cannot be traced for follow-up purposes as well as those employed in a non-related field as adverse factors that negatively impact the percentage.  Those excluded from the calculation include graduate completers who are documented as unavailable for employment due to pregnancy, serious health-related issues, or caring for ill family members, or due to death; as well as those graduate completers who refuse employment.  Refusal of employment includes those graduate completers for whom the school has documented evidence that the completer failed to keep the employment interview appointment, enrolled in the program of instruction strictly for personal use, or simply refused an employment offer in the field of instruction.

State Rate: The placement rate for the state is based on students who find employment related or non-related to the field of instruction pursued immediately or at least six months after completing the program or receiving a third-party credential; enlist in the military; and/or enroll into an apprenticeship program, and/or who pursue additional education.
