NWACC Reports Enrollment Drop for Fall Semester


As colleges fight to contain the spread of COVID-19 with virtual classes and reduced on-campus activites, 2020 fall enrollment numbers are declining across the board, but, according to a report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, community colleges are taking the biggest hit. Northwest Arkansas Community College announced last month its enrollment dropped by 12 percent from fall 2019.
