Gainful Employment

Institutional Effectiveness partners with the Director of Financial Aid to comply with Federal mandates tied to Title IV Funds. Regulations require college programs to better prepare students for “gainful employment” or risk losing access to Federal student aid.


Compliance entails:

  • reviewing the accuracy of program completion records used to evaluate programs through debt to earnings ratios
  • submitting annual, detailed records of students who complete, continue or withdraw from one or more technical programs in an academic year while receiving Title IV Funds 
  • reporting and posting tuition and fees, completion rates and placement rates in related employment.
