BOSTON, June 11, 2020 — The COVID pandemic continues to wreak havoc on higher education. Eighty-six percent of institutions have yet to announce their plans for the fall semester, and when factoring in enrollment, more than half (62 percent) of college students are uncertain about how to plan their lives when fall arrives.

The data appears in a new infographic from Cengage, an education and technology company. The data includes information gathered from a public listing of fall campus plans tracked by The Chronicle of Higher Education and open data from the federal IPEDS system aggregated with an ongoing Cengage faculty survey.

Of the four-year schools that have announced plans, the majority (68 percent) are planning for in-person courses. 3.5 percent are planning for online-only; 5 percent are proposing a hybrid model; 11.5 percent are “considering a range of scenarios,” while 10 percent have announced they are “waiting to decide.”

While data from schools that have announced their fall plans show a majority plan to hold in-person courses, only 18% of instructors surveyed think sessions will be entirely in-person. 70% of instructors believe they will be doing all or some instruction online.

“There is still a lot of uncertainty about what ‘back to school’ will look. Still, we know that America’s higher education system must be more prepared this fall to handle virtual learning than they were in March,” said Michael Hansen, CEO of Cengage. “Whether online or in-person, institutions should focus on making learning more flexible for the needs of their students and the needs of the times.”

Cengage is an education and technology company built for learners. It provides teaching and learning materials for higher education.
