Nationwide undergraduate enrollment numbers decline for second year in a row - Mia Hilkowitz, Indiana Daily Student

A new National Student Clearinghouse Research Center study found that nationwide undergraduate enrollment rates have declined for the second year in a row. There has been a consistent decline since 2020, but the decline has slowed to close to pre-pandemic rates and was not as dramatic as previous years.  The report is part of the research center’s “Stay Informed” series that focuses on enrollment trends since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the report, across the country higher education institutions saw a decline of 1.1% in undergraduate enrollment for the fall of 2022, resulting in a total two-year decline of 4.2%.
