Gainful Employment Information

In order to be eligible for funding under Title IV programs – which provide federal financial aid for students – an educational program must lead to a degree (associate, bachelor's, graduate or professional) or prepare students for "gainful employment in a recognized occupation."

North Seattle College is pleased to provide prospective students with specific, measurable data about the effectiveness of its career training programs. These data are intended to enhance the ability to make good educational choices in order to obtain “gainful employment” in the future.

By providing information about the effectiveness of career training programs, North is also complying with federal requirements recently established by the U.S. Department of Education.

You will find information and metrics for various programs below. These data meet specific disclosure requirements set out by federal regulations regarding “gainful employment” educational programs.
