Q.: I think I have a gainful employment (GE) program at my school, but I need some help convincing other colleagues on campus that this is the case. What resources are available to help explain what constitutes a GE program?
A.: One area of confusion for some schools has been determining whether an educational program is subject to the GE disclosure and reporting requirements that became effective July 1, 2011. To supplement ED guidance provided in Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) GEN-11-10, Electronic Announcement #3 for teacher certification programs, and Electronic Announcement #11 pertaining to GE program determinations, TG has created a flow chart — Identifying a Gainful Employment (GE) program. These collective resources can help schools confirm which of their educational programs are considered GE programs.
