International students in US higher education have received greater attention in the past decades as their enrollment continues to grow. According to the Open Doors report, during academic year 2013-2014, the total enrollment of international students in US higher education reached an all-time record of 886,664, of which 87,963 (10 %) attended Baccalaureate/Associate’s Colleges and Associate’s Colleges (Institute of International Education 2014). This important student population has benefited US higher education in many different ways, such as bringing a global perspective to domestic students who cannot afford to study abroad (Campbell 2012), and providing additional revenue to higher education institutions as public funds continue to diminish (NAFSA 2015).
