International enrollment grows at top colleges
This sortable chart looks at foreign enrollment and admission rates at 50 selective schools. These schools include are all ranked in the Top 25 on two U.S. News and World Report annual lists, of national universities and liberal arts colleges. The foreign enrollment columns show the percentage of the freshman class in 2004 and in 2014 that was categorized as "non-resident alien" in federal higher education data. The admission rate columns show the share of undergraduate applicants in those years that were offered admission. The table omits two highly ranked liberal arts colleges that are not comparable to the rest of the market: the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Military Academy. Surge in foreign students may be crowding Americans out of elite colleges
