There are two kinds of certificates at UCCS: Gainful Employment Certificates and Course of Study Certificates. Gainful Employment Certificates are those intended as workforce training that meet the requirements of the Department of Education and are therefore eligible for some types of financial aid. Course of Study Certificates are ineligible for aid and are exempt from the gainful employment regulations. Both types of certificates are non-degree programs. In order to build a certificate in ISIS, we ask that you complete the proposal and submit it to the Certificate Committee:

 Gainful Employment Certificates: 

Gainful Employment program reporting and compliance regulations are changing frequently. As of September 2013, please refer to the Department of Education's website on Negotiated Rulemaking for Gainful Employment programs to follow the most recent regulations. The Department of Education first issued new regulations pertaining to Gainful Employment programs in 2011. These 2011 regulations are posted to the Federal Register. The scope incorporates some UCCS certificate programs. For more information, please read a quick overview (from Institutional Research), go directly to the IFAP website for up-to-date information and to review all regulations and guidelines, or contact us directly if you have questions or concerns. At UCCS, all approved gainful employment certificates share a plan code of NDGE-CERN.
