Effective July 1, 2011, federal regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010 [75 FR 66665 and FR 66832] by the U.S. Department of Education require postsecondary institutions that participate in the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended, to disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution's Gainful Employment (GE) Programs.
GE information includes general information about the program; total cost including tuition, fees, books, and supplies; debt at program completion; percentage of students that complete the program in the recommended time; and placement statistics. Placement statistics are self-reported through emails, phone calls, and surveys. Random follow-up with employers is conducted by the institution. Deducted from the total are propgram completers unavailable for employment (because of situations such as pregnancy, other serious health-related issues, caring for ill family members, death, etc.) and program completers who refused employment (e.g., completers who failed to keep interview appointments, enrolled in the program of instruction strictly for personal use, or simply refused an employment offer in the field of instruction.)
