Kansas sees decline in international students
Diversity and dollars at stake
TOPEKA, Ks — Kansas Board of Regents colleges lose dollars as they face a decline in international student enrollment.
Kansas Higher Education Statistics show the number of international students enrolled dropped 11 percent since 2015. That equates to about 1,560 students.
International students have a $260 million economic impact on Kansas according to NAFSA: Association of International Educators. Those students pay out-of-state tuition and often live on campus.
Kansas State University Provost Charles Taber said the school could be losing millions in revenue with a decline of nearly 600 international students per year.
