The National Research Center of the Clearinghouse Center launching its final report on the autumn enrollment during the Covid-19 pandemia, which includes data from most institutions in the country.

The data has not changed a lot in the autumn semester. General tendencies, such as the decrease in the registration of the Community University, the enrollment increases and the falls of graduated students in the first year, have remained constant since the first report.

The final word is that, on all the inscriptions of the university decreased 2.5 percent this autumn. This is twice the declining rate informed in autumn 2019. Higher education lost about 400,000 students this fall.

The registration of the Community University saw the sharpest decreases, and Freshman's inscription is reduced 13.1 percent, on the stable with the previous report. The registration of the Community University is reduced to 10.1 percent, from the 9.5 percent decrease in the last report. Public universities on all lost 4 percent of their registration, a fact on the fact that public institutions enroll seven out of 10 students. "However, continuous students are fine, said Doug Shapiro, Executive Director of the Research Center.

" Almost all students who enrolled in the spring remained inscribed in this fall, "except those that They graduated, he said during a web seminar for the report.

Most of the decrease in the first. It is likely that students are due to the pandemic and recession, since the number of students who They graduate in high school remained flat from last year, he added.

Robert Kelchen, Associate Professor of Higher Education at the University of Seton Hall, called the decrease in the new "amazing" student enrollment.

"Some of this are promoted by a decrease in international students, but it is clear that a substantial number of Americans who would normally have attended the university stayed this fall," said Kelchen. "The question then is Conv. It is inscribed after the pandemic ends or if they decide not to go to college. "

This report is a reflection of how the pandemic has exacerbated the struggles that are already facing today's students, said Michelle Asha Cooper, president of the Higher Education Policy Institute.

"Those who see the most acute of these strikes in registration are Community colleges: institutions that often serve the greatest proportion of color students and students from low-income background," she said it's a statement. "While many students can register or re-register at a later time, we know that the delays in enrollment and the need to stop from higher education can decrease the chances that a student will finally get a title or credential. We also know that students that the need to delay a degree or credential must also delay the profits of profits and the results of the labor force associated with educational achievement, both of which could help students and families recover from this crisis and cushion against A future recession. "

Policies responsible must eliminate financial barriers if they wish to support students and make sure they can get an education that leads to a good job, Cooper said.

In Community universities, several seniors experienced great falls in registration, driving the general trend in the sector. The most affected programs include precision products, law enforcement and firefighters, and mechanical technology. This is likely due to the fact that these skills are difficult to teach online, said Shapiro.

Another Clearinghouse report shows the number of secondary graduates that go directly to the university decreased by 22 percent this fall, driven mainly by loss of low-income and urban high school students. This, together with the decrease in enrollment of the Community University, paints the somber image that the most vulnerable students simply do not go to college.

"that has serious implications for this generation of students, and also for our national economy." Shapiro said.

It is clear that university students of the community are being affected more than
