Overall enrollment in college was down slightly in fall 2014, as fewer students showed up in two-year, public schools and four-year, for-profit institutions compared to the previous year.

The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, based in Herndon, Va., released a report last month with the latest enrollment estimates. It found a total of 19.6 million students attended some kind of postsecondary institution in the fall, a drop of 1.3 percent from 19.9 million the year before.

Examining closely by sector, however, the report shows a growth in students going to public, four-year colleges (2.2 percent) and nonprofit, four-year institutions (1.6 percent). But rates for public, two-year schools dropped by 6 percent and four-year, for-profits fell by 4 percent.
