The international enrollment drop could cost higher ed $3B this fall

This fall’s international enrollment drop could cost higher ed $3B.

Reported by Education Dive, a forecasting survey of 346 institutions from NAFSA suggests an estimated three billion dollar loss in international enrollment revenue this fall from coronavirus issues, travel restrictions, and exclusionary federal policies.

The takeaway? Already in a recession, a $3 billion international enrollment revenue hit could set institutions that rely on full-pay international students years to come back from.
