State of Student Experience > Support Card 1

Higher education has faced unprecedented challenges amidst COVID-19. Throughout 2020, many students have transitioned between in-person and remote learning as schools continue to navigate the pandemic. In the fall of 2020, Lumina Foundation and Gallup partnered to survey 2,064 students currently pursuing their associate degree and 3,941 pursuing their bachelor's degree and assessed:

  • How has COVID-19 changed the student experience?
  • To what extent have changes resulting from COVID-19 impacted the quality of the student experience?
  • How, if at all, will COVID-19 impact students' ability to continue in their degree?
