Fall Snapshot Survey on International Students

Every Fall, IIE conducts a "Fall Snapshot Survey" in cooperation with American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), American Council on Education (ACE), Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), Council of Graduate Schools (CGS), and NAFSA: Association of International Educators. This collaborative initiative by the eight associations is conducted online to provide a timely “snapshot” of what U.S. colleges and universities are experiencing with regard to international student enrollment in the current semester. This fall survey collects data separately from the annual Open Doors.
