How it Works

The US higher education system is different from other educational systems. 

There are over 3,500 colleges and universities, and over 1,300 2-year community colleges, in the United States.  Today, over 20 million American students are enrolled in colleges or universities, and half are enrolled at community colleges.

Each year, over 750,000 students from around the world come to the United States to earn a college or university degree, and to experience first-hand the American culture. And almost 100,000 of these international students enroll at community colleges.
