International student enrollment increases in Illinois
International student enrollment is increasing at colleges and universities throughout the state.
Monday the Institute of International Education released a study showing Illinois schools enrolled the fifth-most international students in the country during the 2016-2017 school year.
Illinois schools enrolled 52,225 international students last year, a 3.8% increase from the previous academic year.
But in past years, enrollment increases have been higher than 8%.
Students and study officials agreed political changes in the U.S. are impacting the market for recruiting international students.
