While all programs at Wayne Community College are designed to lead to either employment or transfer, the Department of Education has mandated that institutions disclose specific information about programs that meet the federal government’s Gainful Employment Program definition. At WCC, these programs are either certificate or diploma programs that are also Title IV eligible educational programs. To comply with the federal mandate, WCC has created a website for prospective students to access this Gainful Employment information.
