International Graduate Enrollment Declines for Second Straight Year

International graduate enrollment has continued to decline for the second straight year.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, another 1% year-over-year drop has followed the prior year’s 1% drop.

Immigration policy, visa policy, and America’s image issues for international prospects are all potential factors to account for this enrollment decline.

The takeaway? For those institutions who depend on this international graduate enrollment pipeline, we have a political problem.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
