California’s fall 2021 undergraduate enrollment dropped by almost a quarter-million college students since pre-pandemic fall 2019, in keeping with a survey launched Thursday.
The report from the Nationwide Pupil Clearinghouse reveals that California noticed an general decline of greater than 99,000 — or 4.3% — in undergraduate enrollment from fall 2020 to fall 2021, pushed largely by a 9.9% drop in group faculties.
The general one-year enrollment drop is lower than the decline of 148,113 in fall 2020 when college students had been on-line.
Nationally, enrollment dropped from fall 2020 to fall 2021 by 3.1% — a lack of 465,300 college students, bringing the mixed enrollment losses since fall 2019 to greater than 1 million.
