3 University at Albany Office of International Education FALL 2012 PROFILE OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS The number of international students at the University at Albany rose by 11% in 2012 and the number of countries represented also rose sharply. A total of 1445 students from 102 countries are enrolled in Fall 2012 (compared to 1294 students from 86 countries in Fall 2011). The students represented in this report consist of graduate and undergraduate students, degree and non-degree, inbound study abroad students, and students involved in intensive English language study. These students are enrolled in 40 different departments in all nine Schools and Colleges. (N.B.: International students are defined as students who are here on a visa of any sort. In addition we have 528 students who are citizens of other countries but who are legal permanent residents of the United States. They do not fall under the purview of International Student and Scholar Services, so there is no further discussion of them in this report.) Numbers Increase--The number of international students enrolled in regular University courses is now 1311, compared to 1179 in The number of graduate international students increased 11% to 729, up from 656 in 2011, but still below the high of 777 in The number of undergraduate students is at the highest level ever, having increased from 523 in 2011 to 582 this year (11% increase). Inbound study abroad and exchange students remained the same, and the number of students in the Intensive English Language Program () went from 115 to 134 (17% increase). Of special note: Among the current international graduate students, we count 21 Fulbright students from 12 countries, 10 Fogarty Fellows from 5 countries, and 3 undergraduate Science Without Borders scholarship recipients from Brazil. Proportion of International Students--While international undergraduate students make up only 4.5% of the undergraduate student body, their graduate counterparts comprise over 16% of the total number of graduate students enrolled. In two Schools and Colleges, they comprise 15-20% of the graduate student population (Arts and Sciences and Public Health). In three Colleges they represent an even larger percent of the graduate student body (Computing and Information Science 25%, Rockefeller 31%, and CNSE 34%). Inbound Study Abroad--Our 101 inbound study abroad students come from 30 exchange partner universities in 13 countries. Most are enrolled in non-degree study for one or two semesters, but one graduate student and ten undergraduate transfer students will complete degrees here. Intensive English Language Program-- continues to work with the Office of Admissions, facilitating conditional admission to international students who do not meet the minimum English language requirements. currently has 134 students (95 of whom are conditional admits to degree study) from 13 countries. The Summer Academic Institute, a 4-week program offered from late July to mid-august, attracted 23 new international students seeking to polish their English communication and study skills before enrolling in degree programs. Governmental Compliance--Since the Fall of 2003, regulations set by the Department of Homeland Security require all institutions to report electronically the status and movement of international students. In the summer of 2012 we were recertified by SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System) to continue to admit international students. Beginning in Fall 2011 we have reported to SEVIS the activities of our students holding F and J visas via a batch process that connects our student record system to SEVIS. Reporting students full time status, personal and program information through the batch process allows us to streamline this aspect of our work and improve our compliance with Homeland Security regulations. Maintaining status and complying with federal regulations are of paramount importance. Students who fall out of status risk being deported and possibly barred from returning to the U.S. for several years. Failure to comply with government regulations could also jeopardize the University s right to admit and enroll international students. For these reasons, ISSS staff members make every effort to inform students of the regulations, assist them with compliance, and report students status in a timely and thorough manner.

4 Scholars--Another function of ISSS is to provide visa documents for international scholars who come through the U.S. State Department s J-1 Exchange Visitor program to conduct research at the University. In we hosted 81 visiting research scholars from 21 countries. They were (and are) involved in active research in a wide variety of departments (32 in total) in nearly all of our Schools and Colleges. Meeting Students and Scholars Needs--Our international students and scholars have special needs when they first arrive, including housing, negotiating the University bureaucracy, dealing with issues related to employment, health and insurance, and simply becoming comfortable in their new environment. We do our best to provide helpful information prior to arrival and offer a thorough orientation for students during the week before classes begin. Our Buddy Program for new students in August matched 122 new international students with 120 returning American and international students who helped them adjust to life in the U.S. and at the University. Assisting new international graduate students and visiting scholars as they search for offcampus housing remains a serious challenge for us. Ongoing Programming--During the academic year we present numerous group advisement sessions pertaining to immigration regulations and employment issues. We also offer a number of social events and field trips, such as apple picking, ice skating, skiing, rock climbing, tree-top zip-lining, visits to sites and local sporting events in Albany, as well as bus trips to New York City and Boston. With the help of a dedicated graduate assistant who arranges events and informs students of What To Do This Week (a weekly newsletter, supplemented with Facebook and Twitter), we are making every effort to help our international students and scholars integrate into campus life and life in Albany. The University at Albany continues to advance the internationalization of our campus and community. We appreciate your interest in and continued support of a most valuable resource at the University our students and scholars from abroad!
