International Admission

With approximately 1.2 million international students presently studying at American colleges and universities, there appears to be no shortage of global demand for access to the U.S. higher education system. Undergraduates come in the largest numbers from China and India, with South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Japan also sending large freshman cohorts each year. We suggest checking out our blog entitled How to Apply to a U.S. College as an International Student for detailed guidance on the process itself. However, for pure international admissions data, there is no better place to go than the College Transitions Dataverse.

The table that follows provides prospective international college applicants applying to American schools a look at admissions data from approximately 500 institutions. Data includes 1) the total number of applicants 2) the total number accepted 3) the international acceptance rate 4) the number of accepted students who ultimately enrolled and 5) the yield rate (the number of enrolled students divided by the total number of accepted students).
