With six of the top ten ranked universities internationally – as well as 17 of the top 25 – the United States’ system of higher education has long been the envy of the world. Thus, it comes as no surprise that U.S. universities have been attracting more and more students from abroad, cresting the one million mark in 2015 with 1,043,838 total international students.

Triad has completed a research report based on data from the non-profit Institute of International Enrollment (IIE) detailing the growth of foreign enrollment, campuses with the largest concentration of international students, overall economic impact and future enrollment trends including the impact on student housing.

Foreign student growth largely buoyed overall enrollment gains in recent years, a slowing tide could ultimately cause significant total enrollment declines across the country, particularly in two year and lesser known four year schools.
