Gainful Employment

Gainful Employment has been rescinded by The U.S. Department of Education, effective July 1, 2020.  Eastern Oregon University has opted to implement the early rescission option, effective July 5, 2019.

The following information will no longer be updated. The last update was posted June 2019.

State legislative regulations that oversee the admission of gainful employment, as well as statistics involving gainful employment through certificate programs at various institutions, were adopted on July 1, 2011. Eastern Oregon University offers certificates that fall within these mandated guidelines.  For an institution to be eligible for funding under Title IV, programs offering education certificates must provide students with disclosures recognizing “gainful employment in recognized occupation”. A gainful employment program does not offer a full degree nor lead to a degree.  These programs result in certificates, whether it is an undergraduate certificate, post baccalaureate certificate, or graduate certificate. Disclosure requirements that have gone into effect include institutions offering information about the program that is offered at the institution, whether via website, propaganda or visiting students.
