The U.S. Education Department’s gainful employment regulations require disclosure of certain program information to students and prospective students. Gainful employment programs are those “that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.”  Public institutions are required to report this information for all undergraduate and graduate programs that are less than an Associate’s Degree and Title IV eligible and that lead to certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates or 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.

Gainful employment regulations require disclosure of the following information for each “gainful employment” program:

  • Information on occupations that the program prepares students to enter;
  • Program costs including tuition and fees and book and supplies;
  • Median federal and private loan debt of recent graduates (when more than 10 students have graduated in the aid year);
  • On-time completion rate of recent graduates (when more than 10 students have graduated in the aid year); and
  • Job placement rate of recent graduates.

Information for each of the “gainful employment” programs offered at University of Alaska Anchorage can be found on UAA’s Gainful Employment Website.
