School’s out: Heightened government regulation and intense public scrutiny will cause the industry to continue contracting

Abstract

For-Profit Universities in the US

Over the five years to 2017, the For-Profit Universities industry has experienced a significant decline as operators have garnered lawsuits and negative press for providing poor education to students. Prior to the five-year period, high unemployment encouraged individuals to return to school, bolstering industry revenue growth. However, over the past five years, many students have sued for-profit universities for providing less than adequate education. Meanwhile, demand for industry services fell as the unemployment rate decreased and the economy bounced back, encouraging many consumers to pursue full-time employment instead of enrolling in industry courses. Over the five years to 2022, as the national unemployment rate begins to increase in coming years, while levels of high school retention and per capita disposable income continue to rise, the industry will likely contract at a relatively modest pace. However, unless operators can adequately respond to heightened regulation regarding Title IV funding and better business habits, the industry will continue to shrink and more establishes will shut down.


This industry includes colleges and universities that offer academic courses at associate, baccalaureate or graduate levels on a for-profit basis. A high school diploma or equivalent academic training is generally an admission requirement.
