Adult Students Shifting to Four-Year Non-Profits - Walter Pearson, the EvoLLLution

While enrollments of adult students are dropping nearly across the board, four-year non-profit institutions have seen growth among this critical demographic. In the latest report from the National Student Clearing House, the enrollment in Spring 2016 had increased among those above age 24 only for those enrolling in four-year non-profits. The enrollment increased by 1.5 percent. The enrollment among adult students has generally been shifting downward, with the overall enrollment falling 3.4 percent. The downward trend is sharpest in the for-profit sector, dropping 7.7 percent. The two-year sector has seen enrollments fall 5.8 percent while four-year publics have declined 1.8 percent.
