Gainful Employment Certificate Programs

The U.S. Department of Education requires colleges and universities to disclose certain information for any Title IV eligible program that prepares students for “gainful employment in a recognized occupation." The educational programs offered by public institutions that are subject to the gainful employment regulations are non-degree programs, including all certificate programs. Specifically at UNM, gainful employment programs are all "stand-alone" certificate programs. The following gainful employment disclosure information must be provided:

  • Occupations the program prepares students to enter
  • Occupational profiles
  • Tuition and fees the institution charges the student for completing the program within normal time
  • Costs for books and supplies
  • Cost of room and board (if applicable)
  • On-time graduation rate for students completing the program (only if there are more than 10 students that completed the program)
  • Job placement rate for students completing the program (not currently required in New Mexico)
  • Median load debt incurred by students who completed the program (only if there are more than 10 students that completed the program)

The "gainful employment" certificate programs listed below are eligible for Title IV federal student aid. The programs are divided by campus. Click on the Certificate name below to access Gainful Employment disclosure information for each program.
