Gainful Employment Information

The US Department of Education requires colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that "prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." (Click here for more information.) The information provided here is the best available to us but represents one year's data only. However, we hope that this information is helpful to our current students and to prospective students as they make their career and educational choices.
