Gainful Employment Disclosure
Occupational Employment Statistics
Standard Occupational Classification: 29.1029.00
Regulations of the US Department of Education (DOE) require institutions of higher education to disclose program cost, median loan debt, on-time completion rate, and (as available) graduate job placement information about nondegree certificate programs that prepare students for “gainful employment,” as a condition of receiving federal student aid under Title IV of the Higher Education Act. Pursuant to those regulations, HSDM makes the following disclosures.
Costs for duration of program (based on 2011-12 actual costs)
Tuition and fees: $0
Books and supplies: $0
Room and board: $44,848 (total figure for two years, assuming on-time completion of the program, based on amounts budgeted for room and board by HSDM Office of Financial Aid)
Because fewer than 10 students have been enrolled in this program in applicable years, DOE excuses HSDM from disclosing (and urges that HSDM should not disclose) median loan debt amounts and on-time completion rate information, in order to protect student privacy. See Gainful Employment FAQ.
Institutions must disclose job placement information only if they collect such information about graduates for another reason (for example, for accreditation purposes). HSDM does not collect job placement information and so does not disclose it here.
