Note: On May 23, 2012 we updated page 16 and page 40 of this manual. On page 16, the Web address for a list of CIP codes was incorrect. The correct address is http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/cip2010. On page 40, we corrected the misspelling of the word "cohort." The Gainful Employment Operations Manual Master File has been corrected, as well as the two individual sections ("Reporting of Data by Institutions" and "Explanation of the Debt Measures"). The three replacement files are available below.
We are pleased to announce the posting of the Gainful Employment Operations Manual. The Gainful Employment Operations Manual contains information about the 2010 and 2011 gainful employment regulations. It is intended for institutions that participate in the federal student assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). Within this manual, you will find guidance regarding implementation and compliance with each aspect of the gainful employment regulations.
If you have comments or suggestions about the manual, please send them to the Gainful Employment Operations Team at GE.Operations@ed.gov.
