Gainful Employment

College of Central Florida prepares students for gainful employment in recognized occupations. On March 14, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to establish measures for determining whether certain postsecondary educational programs prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation and the conditions under which these educational programs remain eligible for the student financial assistance programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). Program integrity regulations published in the Federal Register on Oct. 29, 2010, [75 FR 66665 and FR 66832] require postsecondary institutions that participate in the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, to disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s Gainful Employment Programs.

The Federal Department of Education has additional information and resources related to the gainful employment regulations — including the published regulations and Federal Register Notices, answers to frequently asked questions, as well as guidelines for determining which educational programs are subject to the gainful employment regulations — on the Department of Education’s Gainful Employment Information Page at http://ifap.ed.gov/GainfulEmploymentInfo/index.html.
