Gainful Employment



CPCC wants each student to graduate from the program of their choice with good opportunities for employment and a minimum of student debt. The information on this website is intended to help CPCC students make educated decisions about managing their educational goals and financial commitments.

Final regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010, require institutions to report certain information about students who enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). Those regulations also provide that institutions must disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s GE Programs.

Central Piedmont Community College offers certificate and diploma programs that are Title IV eligible but do not lead to a associate degree and are therefore subject to Gainful Employment Disclosure requirements. Click to see a complete list of programs subject to Gainful Employment requirements.

More information about College programs can be found on the website at or in the College Catalog.
