Gainful Employment

The U.S. Department of Education requires colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that “prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." The information provided here is the best available to us and represents one  year’s data only. However, we hope this information is helpful to our current students and to prospective students as you make your career and educational choices in the field of welding.
