Gainful Employment Programs

On June 30, 2012, the Department of Education received a court ruling in a legal challenge which affects the implementation of the Gainful Employment regulations. On March 19, 2013, the court issued a decision that denied a request from the Department to reinstate certain GE provisions, including the reporting requirements. That decision does not affect the GE disclosure requirements for institutions.

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 institutionís 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.

The Secretary published additional regulations related to the program eligibility metrics that will be calculated for gainful employment programs in the Federal Register on June 13, 2011.
