Gainful Employment Certificates:

Gainful Employment program reporting and compliance regulations are changing frequently; please refer to the Department of Education's website on Negotiated Rulemaking for Gainful Employment programs or the IFAP (Information for Financial Aid Professionals) website educational programs that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation are subject to regulations published in the Federal Register (75 FR 66832). The regulations require that each program provide prospective students with the occupations the program prepares students to enter, on-time completion rates, tuition and fees for completing the program, placement rates among completers, and median debt incurred by completers. This page is intended to provide all the disclosure information for each program.

At UCCS, all approved gainful employment certificates share a plan code of NDGE-CERN.
