What will students end up doing this fall?

What will students end up doing this fall?

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, back in March, 1 in 6 students claimed COVID had changed their college path. How much more so in the next several months?

Will community colleges with solid online experiences see an increase in enrollment? Will gap year programs, especially any that can provide more of a leap forward than a year off see an increase as well?

The takeaway? While a Nostradamus prediction of the future may be beyond your paygrade, thinking through where the puck is going to slide come fall is essential if you’re trying to be the place your students land.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
