COVID-19’s impact on colleges and universities nationwide is solidifying, according to research by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.
Transfer Enrollment Decline of Nearly 10% from Last Spring Marks Steepest Drop Since the Pandemic Started
With 94% of Clearinghouse institutions reporting, transfer enrollment at community colleges continues to be hit hardest by the pandemic, regardless of student group, gender, race and ethnicity, or age, while public four-year institutions remain the least affected among all sectors.
The pandemic continues to challenge higher education’s enrollment goals. To help institutions, the Research Center will release the following three research reports in June.
For this spring, COVID-19 accelerated the decline in transfer particularly for White and Black students, male students, and traditional college-age students.
The pandemic disproportionately affected graduates of low-income, high-poverty, and high-minority high schools, with their enrollments dropping more steeply than their more advantaged counterparts.
The latest Yearly Success and Progress Rates report helps institutions and states better identify and inform effective intervention points to increase student success.
New report shows a looming completion challenge for community college students, as evidenced by the lowest number of associate degree earners in years.
