Certificates

Certificate programs offer concentrated study to help you become specialized in your field without having to meet the extended requirements of a standard degree program. Earn a certificate to learn more about a subject, become expert in an emerging field, or boost your career. The programs are abbreviated enough to easily fit into the schedule of a busy professional, but thorough enough to give you a deep knowledge and understanding of the subject matter as well.

In accordance with Federal Regulatory Citations, institutions are required to provide the following information for each program that leads to gainful employment which are:

  1. Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes
  2. On-time graduation rates
  3. Cost of the Program to include books and fees
  4. Placement rate for students completing the program
  5. Median loan debt incurred by students who have completed the program

Gainful Employment Programs

If a program has less than 10 graduates per year, due to privacy issues, the Median Loan Debt and the On-Time Graduation rates are not reported to the public.

* In order for a program to be considered part of the gainful employment, the program has to meet the following:

  • has to be financial aid eligible
  • technical programs of at least one academic year in length
  • program has to lead to a certificate or credentialed non-degree
  • clock hour programs have to be 600 hours or longer
  • college credit certificate programs have to be 30 credit hours or less
