The number of international students enrolled at U.S. universities fell by 4 percent in 2017. An analysis of data from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security found that there were 808,640 international students enrolled in 2017. That figure was down from 840,160 the year before.[1]

Roughly half the decline came from graduate-level students enrolled in computer science and engineering programs.
