Gainful Employment Disclosures

Federal regulations that went into effect on July 1, 2011, include a provision that requires post secondary institutions to disclose to prospective students certain information about each of their “gainful employment” programs. The specific information that must be disclosed for each gainful employment program is as follows:

  • The name and U.S. Department of Labor’s Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code of the occupations that the program prepares students to enter, along with links to occupational profiles on the U.S. Department of Labor’s O*NET Web site or its successor site.
  • The on-time graduation rate for students completing the program.
  • The tuition and fees the institution charges a student for completing the program within normal time.
  • The typical costs for books and supplies (unless those costs are included as part of tuition and fees), and the cost of room and board, if applicable.
  • The job placement rate for students completing the program.
  • The median loan debt incurred by students who completed the program.

The Digital Animation and Visual Effects (“DAVE”) School maintains a distinct webpage, or “Disclosure Page” listing this information for each gainful employment program offered at each school. Once there, navigate to the Program name you are interested in attending (listed in alphabetical order).
