1 INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS & SCHOLARS AT RICE Fall 2016 Office of International Students & Scholars Public Use Version

2 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This report serves as a resource about Rice s international degree-seeking students, as well as information on exchange and visiting students. Information about international scholars, who come to Rice as researchers, faculty members, short-term lecturers, and visiting research students is also included. All non-immigrant students and scholars must be tracked and reported through the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS). A snapshot view was taken for this report (for student on 09/08/2016; for scholars on 07/01/2016), as the numbers are ever-changing throughout the year. The most recent International Education (IIE) Open Doors report published for and NAFSA Public Policy page (Source:2015 Open Doors Report, and serve as primary references. Information not included in this report: 1) Rice Intensive English students and 2) Special international guests and international delegations. In sum, Rice s international community continues to grow. In the past year alone, the OISS offered services to an overall population of over 3400 internationals. Rice continues to see a significant rise in the number of international applicants, offering the unique opportunity to select from the best and the brightest from around the globe. International degree-seeking students (not including exchange/ visiting students) represent 23.6% of the overall student population, providing a vibrant and diverse student body. Our international scholar population experienced a slight increase of 2.4%, after an already impressive growth of 17.1% from the previous year. We expect this increase to continue as Rice continues to expand its research, as well as partnering as we can in government-sponsored programs, primarily with scholars coming from Brazil and Turkey.
