According to a new report from the Council of Graduate Schools, first-time enrollment at U.S. graduate schools increased by 1 percent between fall 2012 and 2013.
That increase was driven primarily by an 11.5 percent growth in new international students. About one in five new students at U.S. graduate schools is on a temporary visa.
The report found a 0.9 percent decrease in U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
Total enrollment at U.S. graduate schools, which includes part-time enrollees, fell by 0.2 percent between fall 2012 and 2013.
