Enrollment trends for 2020 are anything but the norm. Comparisons to last year leave many enrollment leaders worried that they may fall short of their goals – and they are trying to make sure the students who have committed show up for class in the fall.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced many institutions to change their decision days from the traditional May 1 to June 1 or extended it indefinitely. So traditional benchmarks may not be valid.
That’s why Othot has been tracking enrollment trends among its partner institutions.
During the webinar, we will share trends and observations we’ve found in our data (anonymized and aggregated) from May 1 and from June 1 and compare that to 2019 enrollment trends. We’ll also discuss the ongoing risks around summer melt, particularly trends around July 15.
