Nonresident Alien Enrollments in Higher Education Institutions Continue to Increase. National Center for Education Statistics Bulletin.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
Information on college enrollments of nonresident aliens is presented, based on the Higher Education General Information Survey. Data on total and nonresident alien enrollments are shown for 1976, 1978, 1980, and 1982 by institutional type and level of enrollment. Enrollment figures for 1976 and 1978 include the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the outlying areas, while those for 1980 and 1982 omit the outlying areas. Total and nonresident alien enrollment by type of institution and student gender are also shown, as are total and nonresident alien enrollments for U.S. colleges by state for 1976 and 1982. In 1976 the nonresident alien enrollment for the 50 states and the District was 218,680; by 1982, it had risen to 331,301, an increase of 52 percent. In 1982 and earlier years, the incidence of enrollment of nonresident aliens was much greater at the graduate than at the undergraduate level. The largest increase in percentage of nonresident alien enrollment, however, was for undergraduates enrolled at four-year colleges other than universities, where enrollment increased 74 percent (from 55,263 to 96,292) between 1976 and 1982. States with the largest nonresident alien students were California, Texas, and New York. (SW)
