Gainful Employment

Triton College is committed to fostering an educated workforce by offering occupational programs that lead to gainful employment. Graduates from Triton's certificate programs can be assured that they are learning current industry standards and practices that lead to gainful employment.

The Department of Education requires colleges to disclose certain information for any financial aid eligible program that "prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." We invite you to explore the many occupational offerings available at Triton College, including estimated costs, graduation rates and employment opportunities for each certificate program.

Currently, 75 percent of Triton College students are completing their programs of study on a part-time basis. The On-Time Completion Rates as displayed in the 2017 Gainful Employment information links are based on a formula provided by the Department of Education that assumes all students are attending full-time; therefore, the number of students completing on-time may be understated.
