Gainful Employment

The U.S. Department of Education requires colleges and universities to disclose certain information for any Title IV eligible program that "prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." Title IV programs include all graduate certificate programs. Additional information on gainful employment can be found on the U.S Department of Education website.
