Gainful Employment Disclosures

New Federal regulations require colleges to inform students of their prospects for "gainful employment" when receiving federal financial aid for non-degree programs. The disclosures were mandated to assist students in choosing the right program for their needs and to prevent them from taking on debt in exchange for programs that fail to get them adequate jobs.

Prospective students will find Gainful Employment Disclosures for each certificate program listed below. (All degree programs are exempted from the Gainful Employment Disclosure mandate.)

At Fairfield University, we are proud of the strength of our programs, our students' employment outcomes, and the leadership roles our graduates have taken in their respective fields.
