Gainful Employment Programs

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 (gainful employment programs). Those regulations also provide that institutions must disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s gainful employment programs. Central Piedmont 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 Central Piedmont students make educated decisions about managing their educational goals and financial commitments.

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