Gainful Employment Disclosure

The Gainful Employment Rule requires schools to provide students with an education that helps them gain employment in the workforce and pay off their student loans. Since information presented on the Gainful Employment Disclosure comes from the small subset of our students that receive Financial Aid, the statistics are not robust enough to be displayed. Please refer to our FAQ page for more information on employment opportunities post-graduation.
