Overall College Enrollment Continues to Decline

The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center has published a report outlining the fall 2019 college enrollments and the continued decline nationally. Some of the trends include:

  • More significant decline in the for-profit sector
  • Larger decline in part-time versus full-time enrollments
  • In the private, not-for-profit, sector smaller institutions experienced larger decline

In short, the current national enrollment trajectory depends heavily on institutional type, size, control, and location.
