Gainful Employment

Gainful Employment Program Disclosure

Regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010 require institutions to report aggregated information for students who enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). These regulations include the disclosure of tuition and fees, books and supplies, on-campus room and board, number of students completing the program, median student loan debt, and job placement rates which must be available to all prospective students. Below lists disclosures for all Title IV eligible certificate programs offered at LWTech which can also be found on the respective program page. On-time completion and median loan data is calculated by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) and is based on a certificate’s respective Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code. Separate disclosures are provided for each reportable certificate, even if they share the same CIP code and credential level, in order to provide more useful information for prospective students and their families as lengths of programs, tuition, and fees differ for each program (please see the Department of Education's Electronic Announcement #25 for more details). On-time completion and median loan data calculated by the SBCTC may reflect multiple offerings that share the same CIP code and credential level. Additionally, students enrolled in degree-granting programs are tracked in their respective associate degree program and may not be included in the calculation of on-time completion and median loans for Title IV eligible certificate programs. Community and technical colleges in Washington State are not currently required to calculate a job placement rate for program completers.
