What is Gainful Employment?
Final regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010, require institutions to report certain information about students who enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). Those regulations also provide that institutions must disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution's GE Programs. Finally, the new regulations require institutions to notify the Department if they wish to add an additional GE Program to its list of Title IV eligible programs. All of these requirements are effective July 1, 2011.
