For-Profit Colleges: A Closer Look at Technical Schools and Employability


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office looked at for-profit schools.  For-profit schools are community colleges and technical schools.  The schools can be private or public.  Studies compared those in for-profit schools to State or private universities.  Those who go to for-profit schools have a higher unemployment rate.  They are also more likely to default on student loans.
