First-look fall 2021 enrollment
From National Student Clearinghouse Research Center: “Fall 2021 enrollment numbers show no signs of recovery from last year’s declines. Undergraduate enrollment is down 3.2 percent from a year ago. Undergraduate student numbers have now fallen by 6.5 percent as a total from two years ago. … While undergraduate enrollment is down in all sectors, private nonprofit four-year students fared better, falling only 0.7 percent this fall due to 4.3 percent more students enrolled in highly selective institutions. Freshman enrollment continued to slip this fall. First-year student numbers declined by 3.1 percent overall and 3.9 percent among traditional-age students (18-20).”
