Report Identifies Early Signs of COVID-19 Impact on Enrollment
Although April and May 2020 showed minimal impact of COVID on enrollment, “early signs of broader impacts” have begun to surface, according to a COVID-19 supplement published by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.
After campus shutdowns, 10 percent of community college students reduced their enrollment intensity compared to 6 percent in previous years. Also, more students took advantage of generous “approved leaves of absence” policies. This decline surprised researchers who had expected a surge in enrollment among newly unemployed adults. An emergent pattern took place where African-Americans and Hispanic students were taking proportionately higher leaves of absence, which are “likely to accelerate as the pandemic disruptions drag on.”
