Gainful Employment

Gainful employment (GE) programs are those that “lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation”.  The U.S. Education Department's gainful employment regulations require disclosure of specified program information to all students and prospective students.  At public and not-for-profit institutions gainful employment programs are Title IV eligible undergraduate and graduate programs that lead to certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates and specialist awards. Reporting is not required for undergraduate certificates and diplomas less than 16 credits and graduate certificates and specialist awards that are less than 8 credits. Degree programs at all levels are not considered to be gainful employment programs.

Currently Roosevelt University offers one certificate and three diplomas that are Title IV eligible.  Disclosure information for each of the "gainful employment" programs offered at Roosevelt University is linked below:
