                  Gainful Employment

                  The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) requires that institutions of higher education must provide current and prospective students with information about each of its programs that "prepares students for gainful employment (GE) in a recognized occupation."  Lone Star College certificate programs not designed to be fully transferable to a bachelor's degree program are considered GE programs. 

                  The intent of this requirement is to enable students to make an informed choice about a gainful employment program.  In order to disclose information in a consistent, clear, and comparable format, the DOE requires colleges to provide this information on a designated webpage using the Gainful Employment Disclosure Template. 

                  These disclosures will assist students and their families 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.  Additional information related to the GE regulations are available at https://www2.ed.gov/policy/highered/reg/hearulemaking/2009/negreg-summerfall.html.
