Higher Ed by the Numbers

Inside Higher Ed
December 9th, 2014

I’ve been spending some time with the tables from the 2013 Digest of Education Statistics.  Here are the numbers, levels, and trends that I’m trying to drill into my brain.  I’ve rounded all the numbers in the hope of remembering them, you can go to the link to get the exact figures.
 
Institutions:
  • The US has just over 4,700 degree granting institutions of postsecondary education.
  • However, almost 1,400 of these schools have less than 500 students.  
  • There are over 220 schools with 20,000 or more students, of which 93 have over 30,000 enrolled students.  (Only 21 of these big schools are private non-profit).
