International students can add diversity to a college or university, enriching the experience of other students on campus. Schools with a strong global presence often have a wealth of cultural groups and events, allowing international students an opportunity to share their food, music and traditions with their U.S. peers. International students attending one of the schools listed below may also benefit from a large foreign community when trying to acclimate to American life. These colleges reported the highest percentages of international students in the 2016-2017 academic year.

During the 2015-2016 school year, for example, Florida Institute of Technology had 33 percent of bachelor’s-seeking students from abroad. The school had the highest percentage of international students for the 2015-2016 school year among the 297 ranked institutions that submitted these data to U.S. News in an annual survey.

Below are the 10 schools with the highest percentage of undergraduate international student enrollment during the 2015-2016 school year. Unranked schools, which did not meet certain criteria required by U.S. News to be numerically ranked, were not considered for this report.

U.S. News surveyed more than 1,800 colleges and universities for our 2016 survey of undergraduate programs. Schools self-reported myriad data regarding their academic programs and the makeup of their student body, among other areas, making U.S. News’ data the most accurate and detailed collection of college facts and figures of its kind. While U.S. News uses much of this survey data to rank schools for our annual Best Colleges rankings, the data can also be useful when examined on a smaller scale. U.S. News will now produce lists of data, separate from the overall rankings, meant to provide students and parents a means to find which schools excel, or have room to grow, in specific areas that are important to them. While the data come from the schools themselves, these lists are not related to, and have no influence over, U.S. News’ rankings of Best Colleges, Best Graduate Schools or Best Online Programs. The international student enrollment data above are correct as of Aug. 1, 2017.
