In order for a certificate program to qualify for federal financial aid, the Department of Education requires that the program be at least one academic year (minimum of 24 credits and 30 weeks) in duration and leads to a certificate, degree, or other recognized credential and prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. The following certificate programs are approved and eligible for financial aid should a student choose to apply. All other certificate programs offered at The Sage Colleges are not eligible at this time.

Gainful Employment

Regulations implemented by the United States Department of Education require public and non-profit institutions that participate in federal financial aid programs to report certain information about their non-degree educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation.

The regulation pertains to our students enrolled in our certificate programs that qualify for federal financial aid.

The information provided for each program, includes total program costs, median loan debt, job placement rates and other consumer information.  This information is intended to help our certificate students make informed choices about the educational programs they pursue.

The information reported is based on data for students that completed the  program between July 1st, 2017 and June 30th, 2018.

For further information please contact The Office of Financial Aid at 518-244-4525 or 518-292-1783.
