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.

Gainful Employment Disclosures can be found at the bottom of each program page (all educational programs and degrees at Century College are listed online).
