Gainful Employment Programs

Final regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010, require institutions to report certain information about students who enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). Those regulations also provide that institutions must disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s GE Programs.

The programs listed below are the educational programs offered by Colorado Mesa University/Western Colorado Community College which are considered GE Programs by those federal regulations. Click on the program to view the required data/information for each program.

Notes Concerning the Data Reported

Neither median debt nor on-time completion rates are required, for privacy reasons, to be disclosed when there are fewer than ten students who completed the GE program during the award year. See

Colorado Mesa University/Western Colorado Community College submits job placement rates to the Colorado Community College System to comply with the state Career Technical Act and federal Perkins regulations for Career and Technical Education funding. The job placement rates reported below are the proportion of completers who the institution was able to contact and were employed in a related field out of the number of completers who were contacted. This placement rate does not consider a completer furthering their education or employed in an unrelated field as a "placement".

Tuition and fees to complete the program is based on the number of credit hours required to complete the program and the current tuition and fee rate. Room and board costs are based on the average current room rate and full meal plan and the number of terms needed to complete the program. The estimated amount for books and supplies is based on an institution wide estimate and the number of terms needed to complete the program. The estimate is not program specific.
