NWCCD Gainful Employment

Federal regulations require institutions to report certain information about students enrolled in Title IV federal aid-eligible educational programs that lead to a recognized occupation (gainful employment). This website was created to allow prospective students to research the gainful employment (GE) programs available at NWCCD. Prospective students will be able to find information about the program, links to occupational information, estimated cost of program, normal time for program completion, median debt at program completion, and, if available, job placement rate for program graduates.

While all our programs at NWCCD are designed to lead to employment or transfer, the Department of Education requires that we provide disclosure information on the specific certificate programs listed below. We do not disclose median debt amounts or on-time completion rates for programs having less than 10 graduates (in these cases, “n/a” is used). Average on-campus living rates are provided. Students choosing to live off-campus will likely experience different living expenses.
