On October 22, 2020, the US-based National Student Center Clearinghouse Research Center published an updated report on the impact of COVID-19 on US higher education enrollments. To highlight unique enrollment patterns that are attributable to the pandemic the Center reported year-over-year percent change in enrollment between 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 based on the same institutions reporting in 2018 and 2019. The data shows that COVID 19 lead to a broad and clear decline in undergraduate and freshmen enrollments and to steep declines in enrollments of minority students and students in community colleges.
