Fall 2023 Snapshot on International Student Enrollment

The Fall 2023 Snapshot on International Student Enrollment findings are based on responses from over 630 U.S. higher education institutions on current patterns in international student enrollment as of fall 2023. The report focuses on international students studying at U.S. higher education institutions in person or online (in the United States or from abroad). The report, conducted by the Institute of International Education (IIE) and ten partner higher education associations, complements the Open Doors® Report on International Educational Exchange.

The findings from the Fall 2023 Snapshot reflect the resilience of the U.S. higher education system and provide an understanding of the current state of U.S. higher education institutions’ commitment to international student mobility. With increases noted across all academic levels for the second consecutive year, the findings point to the continued growth of international student totals in the 2023/24 academic year. The full picture of the 2023/24 academic year will be available in November 2024 with the release of Open Doors 2024.
