Gainful Employment

Federal regulations require colleges and universities to report certain information about the success of students who enroll in educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized field. While all of the programs of Indian Hills Community College are designed to lead to either employment or college transfer, the U.S. Department of Education requires the disclosure of information for programs that are one-year or less in length (e.g., diploma or certificate programs).

At Indian Hills Community College, we understand that students and families should be prepared for college and informed of the employment opportunities before starting a program. To ensure you have the information you need, gainful employment information, general program information, estimated costs, on-time completion rates, placement rates, median debt at the time of program completion, and related occupational information are posted for each relevant program below.
