Gainful Employment Certificates:
Gainful Employment program reporting and compliance regulations are changing frequently; please refer to the Department of Education's website on Negotiated Rulemaking for Gainful Employment programs or the IFAP (Information for Financial Aid Professionals) website periodically. Educational programs that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation are subject to regulations published in the Federal Register (75 FR 66832). The regulations require that each program provide prospective students with the occupations the program prepares students to enter, on-time completion rates, tuition and fees for completing the program, placement rates among completers, and median debt incurred by completers. This page is intended to provide all the disclosure information for each program.
Refer to UCCS Policy 200-023 Certificate Programs and the Certificate Approval Form.
UCCS will honor the disclosure requirements through July 1, 2020. For 2019, the Department of Education did not provide the same template for disclosures. There were no certificate programs with 10 or more completions and therefore the median debt amount has been withheld to preserve the confidentiality of the students. The cost of each certificate depends on a number of factors; please use the UCCS tuition calculator to estimate the costs.
Please note that teacher certificates are exempt from the gainful employment regulations and are not listed here.
