According to Capella's annual report, they had 11,619 doctoral students at the end of 2011, down 3.6 % from the 12,058 that they had at the end of 2010. As noted previously, UoP's doctoral enrollments are also down by about the same percentage. Capella actually has more doctoral students, though UoP is much larger overall. So doctoral enrollments are down at both schools, but not by very much, only about 3 or 4 %. The economic downturn doesn't seem to be discouraging people from pursuing doctorates.
