Program Description:

A major aspect of the Program Integrity rules issued last fall by the Department of Education were the so-called “Gainful Employment” rules. Broadly speaking, these rules apply to non-degree certificate programs of less than one year, although there are several nuances in determining if a program is in fact a “gainful employment program” subject to the rules.

Then in June the Department issued another set of gainful employment regulations designed to measure student debt level and employability (and ultimately the continued eligibility of the program for Title IV student financial aid funds) in gainful employment programs.

It has been estimated that there are 40,000 programs at public or non-profit institutions of higher education that may be subject to the requirements imposed by the Department on gainful employment programs.

This program will analyze the key aspects and compliance obligations of the gainful employment rules, including:

· Determining whether a program is a “gainful employment program”

· Reporting requirements, including student enrollment and completion and student private and institutional loan indebtedness

· Disclosure requirements, including program on-time graduation rates, program costs, program job placement rate, and median loan debt

· Required advance application for U.S. Department of Education approval of new gainful employment programs

· Student debt measures for continued Title IV program eligibility, including loan repayment rate, debt-to-total income ratio, and debt-to-discretionary income ratio

· Department compliance aids and enforcement efforts

Any institution with gainful employment programs will benefit from this thorough review and analysis of the gainful employment rules. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain an understanding of the impact of these rules on your institution.
