USC enrolls most foreign students in nation
For the 10th year in a row, USC held on to a championship that has nothing to do with sports: The Los Angeles campus once again enrolled the most foreign students of any college or university in the United States, according to a new study.
UCLA had the sixth-highest international enrollment, up from seventh place the year before.
Across the country, the ranks of international students enrolled in American higher education increased 5% last year, to 723,277, according to the annual report by the Institute of International Education, a New York nonprofit group, in partnership with the U.S. State Department.
USC enrolled 8,615 foreign students last year, up from 7,987 the previous year, said the study, "Open Doors," which was released Monday.
UCLA enrolled 6,249 foreign students, compared with 5,685 the prior year.
