Gainful Employment Information2018-08-14T16:00:54-04:00

New Federal Regulations require institutions to report certain information about students who are enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). While all programs at Wilkes Community College are designed to lead to either employment or transfer, the Department of Education requires disclosure information be provided on the programs listed below.

This website was created to allow prospective students to research the GE programs available at Wilkes Community College. Prospective students will be able to find information about the program, occupation codes from the U.S. Department of Labor, estimated cost of program, normal time for program completion, median debt at program completion, and job placement rate for program completers, if available.

For programs with less than 10 graduates, the college does not disclose median debt amounts and on-time completion rates (designated by n/a). In addition, room and board costs are not applicable because the college does not offer on-campus living.
