Gainful Employment

Beginning July 1, 2011, the U.S. Department of Education will require colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that "prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." What does this mean for you? Essentially that information regarding questions you may have about occupations, completion rates, placement rates, program costs and median loan debt may be found at ppcc.edu/ge.
