Fall’s Final Enrollment Count Is In. Colleges Lost More Than 475,000 Students.

New data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center provides a somber final tally of college enrollment during the fall of 2021: It dropped 2.7 percent from a year earlier, a decline of 476,100 students.

Undergraduate enrollment, which was down at every type of institution, slipped by 3.1 percent — or 465,318 students — from the fall of 2020. The total decline among undergraduates since the fall of 2019 — just before the pandemic hit — was more than a million students, the center said.
