The final program integrity regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010, [75 FR 66665 and FR 66832] require post-secondary institutions that participate in the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the HEA (Higher Education Act) of 1965, as amended, to disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s Gainful Employment (GE) Programs.

Under the HEA, to be eligible to participate in the Title IV student assistance programs, any educational program that does not lead to a degree awarded by a public or non-profit post-secondary institution must lead to gainful employment (GE) in a recognized occupation. Any non-degree program for which an institution awards a certificate or diploma is a Gainful Employment Program.

Visit the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website for more information about gainful employment.

To search for and explore information about occupations, visit O*Net Online, an interactive tool for workers and students looking to find or change careers.

More information on Gainful Employment (Methodology and Summary of Findings) is available at: "Research, Gainful Employment"
