According to Open Doors, in 2012/13 academic year, there are 7,670 students from Indonesia studying in the United States. The number shows an increase of 7.6% from the previous year, marking the highest increase in percentage after sixteen years. 

Globally, Indonesia is the 18th leading place of origin for students coming to the U.S. and the 2nd among the Southeast Asian countries after Vietnam. Many sources predict the trend will keep increasing, due to the effort made by the U.S. Embassy to ensure  95% of student visa applications are granted.
