Influx of International Students Attending U.S. Colleges
The world is getting smaller. Nearly 820,000 international students came to U.S. colleges in the 2012/2013 school year, according to an analysis released by the Institute of International Education. Those students contributed over $24 billion to the economy. Around 49 percent of all international students in the U.S. are from China, India and South Korea. The report also showed that around 283,000 American students earned academic credit studying abroad during the 2011/2012 school year; that number has tripled over the past two decades.
