National Student Clearinghouse First Look Fall 2022 Enrollment Report

Last week, the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) issued its First Look Fall 2022 Enrollment report. Once again, overall undergraduate enrollment declined, this fall by 1.1 percent since last year and 4.2 percent since fall 2020. Graduate enrollment declined by 1.0 percent as well.

The previously large declines in community college enrollments subsided with a minimal .4 percent decline over last fall.
