Enrollment up at US grad schools

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.
