The U.S. Education Department's Gainful Employment (GE) regulations require disclosure
of certain program information to students and prospective students. Gainful Employment
programs are defined by the Federal Government and are those "that prepare students
for gainful employment in a recognized occupation and which meet certain other stipulations."
Gainful Employment regulations require disclosure of the following information for each "gainful employment" program:
- Program length (in months)
- Program costs including tuition and fees a student would incur while completing the program within normal time
- The typical costs for books and supplies
- Median loan debt incurred by students who completed the program
- On-time completion rate of recent graduates
- Job placement rate of recent graduates
The table below indicates the Certificate program at Louisiana Tech University that meets the Federal Government's Gainful Employment Program definition. Occupational profiles for this program can be found at: http://www.onetonline.org/ under SOC code 29-1031.
