Higher Ed Enrollment Is Up

upward graphI saw some new enrollment data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, and it is good news for colleges.  It shows a reversal from the trend of enrollment decline.  The reversal began in fall 2023, and the improvement is better for this spring. Most colleges survive from the income of tuition, room and board, and fees and any shrinking enrollment is a problem.

The data that interested me is that two-year schools showed the most growth. Dual enrollment by high school students is up 10%. High school students at community colleges accounted for nearly one-third of the total post-secondary enrollment rise.  Vocational/technical programs also figure into the increase.
