Open Access Graduate Research Paper
A foreign student is defined as "a citizen of another country pursuing education in a U.S. school requiring a high-school diploma or its equivalent" (Agarwal & Winkler, 1985, p.510). The leading nation for enrollment of foreign students is the United States, with more than 325,000 enrolled in 1986 (Altbach, 1986). Foreign graduate students comprised approximately 41% of the full-time graduate student enrollment in American higher education in 1987 (Friedman, 1987). These facts highlight the impact of foreign students on postsecondary institutions in the United States and the subsequent implications for foreign student affairs staff.
