In accordance with US Department of Education regulations, the JHU School of Education is required to disclose graduation rate data, median loan debt data, and other select information for all Title IV eligible gainful employment (GE) programs. To see the most recent data available for this GE program, please view the attached disclosure.
Note: In accordance with US Department of Education guidelines, the on-time completion rate and median loan debt figures published here were calculated based on the data for all 2013-14 program completers who graduated from Title IV eligible GE certificate programs sharing the 13.0101 Education, General CIP code: these data are not specific to this individual program. The on-time completion rate and program length are calculated using a set formula (based on guidelines provided by the US Department of Education). Many JHUSOE programs follow a format that falls outside the standard program length formula used by the US Department of Education for calculating program on-time completion rate. The JHU School of Education is seeking to change the CIP code currently assigned to this specific program to a more appropriate designation. The restrictions imposed by the current US Department of Education online disclosure form limit the number of jobs related to this program that can be displayed in this disclosure: the job(s) listed here represent only a sample of the jobs related to the program. The program costs are calculated based on the tuition and fees in effect for the 2014-15 academic year.
