The U.S. Department of Education requires Northwest Technology Center to disclose information to prospective students about gainful employment for eligible career options that are 600 clock hours or greater in length with post-secondary (adult) student enrollment. Over 2/3 of our enrollment consists of secondary (high school) students. Gainful Employment disclosure job placement rates include adult students only. Our GE disclosures include: related occupations, program costs and length, on-time completion/graduation rates, job placement rates, and median loan debt. The placement rate methodology is determined by our accrediting agency which is the Oklahoma State Board of Career and Technology Education. Positive placement includes the following: employment related to the career option and program, continuing education, and military enlistment. It excludes program completers who are unemployed, but seeking employment and students not in the labor force. Northwest Technology Center does not participate in any student loan program and does not have financing plans available for students, therefore, students can finish a program at NWTC debt free.
NWTC Gainful Employment Disclosures and Career Option Brochures include CIP and SOC codes. CIP codes are used to provide a standard way of classifying fields of study, mostly at the post-secondary (college/university) level. The CIP Classification of Instructional Programs Code is listed under each career option in the Student Consumer Information Handbook located on this website. You can also access CIP Code information at www.nces.ed.gov/ipeds/cipcode. The SOC system was developed in response to the need for a universal occupational classification system. Such a classification system allows government agencies, private industry, and students to produce comparable data about occupations. The SOC Standard Occupational Classification Code is listed under each career option in the Student Consumer Information Handbook located on this website. You can also access SOC Code information at www.onetcodeconnector.org.
As of July 1, 2018, per federal regulations, NWTC GE Disclosures will be distributed to prospective students as a separate document before the student signs an enrollment application or makes any financial commitment to the institution. Per federal guidelines, written confirmation of the receipt of the GE Disclosure Template will be obtained from all prospective students.
