“deeply worried about the potential impact of the coronavirus on enrollment, a new survey suggests”
Is it possible that there are schools that won’t survive this crisis? It’s not a stupid question.
Scott Jaschik writes at Inside Higher Ed:
Admissions officers are deeply worried about the potential impact of the coronavirus on enrollment, a new survey suggests.
Asked to rank their prospects for the yield — the percentage of admitted applicants who will enroll — 43 percent of enrollment leaders answered 5, on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the worst. And 32 percent answered 4.
Those are among the answers to a survey released by EAB on Tuesday on admissions in the era of the coronavirus.
EAB released answers from 257 four-year colleges, 64 percent of them private, and not all of them EAB clients. The colleges are roughly an even split among selective, most selective and least selective institutions.
A large majority of those answering — 87 percent — worry that future visits to the campus by potential students will decline.
This year, 36 percent saw a decline in visits, 50 percent saw no decline and 15 percent were unsure.
