* Academic level totals by place of origin differ from the official academic level totals reported in Table 4 and throughout due to differences in responses to the nationality and academic level questions on the survey. Percent distribution may not total 100% due to rounding.
** "Non-degree" includes both intensive English programs and other non-degree study. This category corresponds to the "Other" category in Open Doors 2007. Prior to Open Doors 2007, the "Other" category also included students on Optional Practical Training.
