Doug Shapiro, Ph.D., Executive Director of the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, discusses the state of higher education amid the pandemic, specifically the effect of the pandemic on college access for students, and the future of the higher education in 2021 and beyond.
During December, the Research Center delivered four very important reports to benefit colleges, universities, high schools, and policy leaders about fall 2020 enrollment trends throughout the nation.
Undergraduate enrollment is down 4.4% while graduate enrollment is up 2.9% compared to the same time last year. Overall, postsecondary enrollment this fall is 3.3% lower.
Recognizing the urgency of COVID-19’s impact on students and institutions, the Research Center will explain how the pandemic is changing transfer pathways across higher education over the next two years.
StudentTracker for High Schools subscribers who submitted their 2019-2020 high school graduate records can expect their StudentTracker reports within the next few weeks offering an early look at fall enrollment.
