From October 2011 to October 2018, the total number of people enrolled at all levels of school declined by 2.2 million to 76.8 million people, according to recently released data from the U.S. Census Bureau's Current Population Survey School Enrollment Supplement.

From 2011 to 2018, undergraduate college enrollment dropped by 1.8 million. During the same period, the number of students enrolled in two-year colleges dipped by 25%, or 1.4 million, to 4.3 million.
