The U.S. Department of Education has issued the final rules and regulations on "gainful employment." These new provisions are applicable to all schools that offer any non-degree programs of study.

All non-degree programs, regardless of school type or educational level, are currently subject to gainful employment requirements. Only degree programs (associate, bachelor, graduate and/or professional) and two-year transfer programs are not subject to the gainful employment requirements.

Baptist Bible College & Seminary does not have any programs of study that meet the requirements for "gainful employment" as defined by the U.S. Department of Education.


Early each calendar year, BBC&S surveys all graduates from the previous May.

In the most recent survey, approximately 92 percent of respondents indicated they were currently employed full-time. About 7 percent of respondents reported they were full-time students; slightly over 10 percent indicated they were part-time students.

Only 3 percent of graduate respondents said they were both currently unemployed and not full-time students.

On employment, approximately 50 percent of respondents stated they were employed full-time in vocational ministries, such as churches, Christian schools, and mission agencies.
