How Much Have We Been Undercounting Online Students?

Ruffaloni

Millions of online undergraduate and graduate students may have been undercounted. Having focused on the returning adult student for more than 20 years, I have often thought that 12-month (academic year) unduplicated headcount data better portray adult student participation in higher education than the fall snapshot data that is commonly used to understand of the “shape” of the market.
