Gainful Employment Disclosure
Current 34 CFR 668.6(b) specifies disclosure requirements for programs that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. These disclosures are made by institutions using a disclosure template provided by the Secretary and approved by OMB under control number 1845-0107. As part of the Gainful Employment final regulations published in the Federal Register on October 31, 2014 (79 FR 64890), as corrected on December 4, 2014 (79 FR 71957) (Final Regulations) a new paragraph (d) was added to §668.6 that provides that institutions are not required to comply with the provisions of §668.6, including paragraph (b), after December 31, 2016. New disclosure requirements with which institutions must comply beginning January 1, 2017 have been established in §668.412. Under the new disclosure requirements, an institution must provide current and prospective students with information about each of its programs that prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs) using a disclosure template provided by the Secretary.
Generally, GE Programs include:
- At public and private not-for-profit institutions: Title IV-eligible non-degree programs (e.g., certificate and diploma programs)
- At for-profit institutions: All Title-IV eligible instructional programs, degree and non-degree.
The disclosure of information about a gainful employment program on the institution’s Web site will provide useful information to prospective students and their families. The intent of the provisions in §668.412 is to enable students to make an informed choice about a gainful employment program by making the disclosures clear, timely, meaningful, and comparable. These disclosures will also allow students to make determinations about the amount of student indebtedness incurred by students who completed the gainful employment program, the average costs of attending the program, rates of normal completion time, and job placement rates.
