Gainful Employment Fact Card

The U.S. Department of Education requires schools with financial aid eligible programs that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation to disclose certain information about these programs. We hope that this information is helpful to prospective students as they make their career and educational choices. Visit the Prairie State College website at for more information about the individual program graduation rates and tuition fees, median debt of students who completed the program, job placement rates, and other important information.

For more information, contact Grace McGinnis, Director of Financial Aid at (708) 709-3519 or
