    Gainful Employment

    The U.S. Department of Education requires all colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that "prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation."  Gainful employment disclosure information can be found for specific programs regarding tuition and fees and median loan debt, completion and job placement rates, and jobs related to the program on the web page for each program area.

    We hope this information is helpful to our current and prospective students as you make your career and educational choices. For more information on Gainful Employment requirements, please read this letter from the U.S. Department of Education (7-page PDF).


      Information on all eligible NPC programs can be found in the Gainful Employment Data Archives.
