Business Environment

According to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, or NCES, total student enrollment in degree-granting colleges and universities in 2005 was 17.4 million. The Chronicle of Higher Education has reported that there remain significant opportunities for increasing postsecondary enrollments, as two-thirds of American adults do not have at least an associate degree.

In 2007, Eduventures, LLC, an education consulting and research firm, estimated that there were 1.5 million students enrolled in online programs at the end of 2006, representing approximately 8.6% of all students enrolled at U.S. degree-granting, Title IV eligible institutions. In December 2006, Eduventures estimated that by the end of 2008 online students will number around 2.1 million and that based on middle projections for higher education enrollments as a whole by the National Center for Education Statistics, online students will account for approximately 11.5% of all students in degree-granting institutions by 2008.

In 2006, Eduventures also projected that annual revenues generated from students enrolled in fully-online programs at Title IV eligible, degree-granting institutions would increase by more than 30% to reach more than $8.1 billion in that year. Of the schools that provide online learning, in 2004 Eduventures estimated that for-profit schools account for 37% of online enrollments (compared to only 6% of all postsecondary students).

There are more than 2.1 million active and reserve military professionals in the United States Armed Forces. Each year, approximately 300,000 new service members are enlisted or commissioned to replace retiring and separating members.
