For-Profit Online Enrollments Continue to Fall

May 31, 2017

As reported in Inside Higher Ed, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center found that college enrollments continue to decline, with most of the dip occurring among older undergraduates at for-profit institutions and community colleges. For-profit colleges were hit the hardest, with a 10.1 percent decline in the spring of 2017, following a dip of 9.3 percent last spring. The center found a drop of 2.5 percent at community colleges, which was slightly less than the 2.8 percent decline last year. Enrollments were largely flat at four-year public institutions (up 0.2 percent) and four-year private institutions (down 0.2 percent).
