  • The US patterns have largely tracked this persistent growth.
  • So, the first thing is to give a general overview of the number of international students at Parkland College and where they come from. Next, I will break down a representative sample to show the transfer trends of a recent sampling of student. Finally a look at ways in which we are trying to learn more about our students’ intentions before they arrive at Parkland.
  • Although rates fluctuate because of economic issues and rising costs, Parkland College has maintained consistent numbers and are close to pre 2001 numbers.
  • All of these students return to complete their education; many have expressed a desire to return to North America to pursue graduate degrees.
  • These numbers are the numbers that we report to SEVIS. 2 students transferred out of the system; NYG is an ESL school and sometimes students think they will fare better for transferring to Eastern seabord schools
  • West Florida University student was a high school exchange student from Brazil who returned to attend and play soccer at Parkland College; Suffolk University is a private school in Boston, so students do transfer out to the East coast direct from Parkland College.
  • One private school and two community colleges in the Chicago area
  • The figures in this slide are meant to give some comparisons; the data are not correlated. *These are based on reported rates of graduate follow up—503 transferred, 44% reported. These data include 9% who are working.
