U.S. Colleges Expelled as Many as 8,000 Chinese Students in 3 Years

Universities in the U.S. have expelled thousands of Chinese students in the past three years, according to WholeRen Education, which provides academic services to Chinese students.

A 54-page report released this week says that schools in the United States have expelled 1,657 Chinese since the 2012-2013 school year, mainly for “academic dishonesty or low academic performances,” but a company representative now says the number might be as high as 8,000 students. “A lot of students tend to keep silent or go back to their country,” says Andrew Chen, chief development officer at WholeRen.

The report states that nearly half a million Chinese students study overseas, citing figures from China’s Ministry of Education. In the 2013-2014 school year, the U.S. hosted 886,052 foreign students, 31 percent of whom were from China, according to the Institute of International Education.

“There are several universities that are very, very aggressively recruiting [Chinese] students,” Chen says. “But in terms of how to manage them, how to have them be successful, it’s not as aggressive. Let me say it that way.”

1. 4% of Chinese students. I wonder what is the % of American students expelled.

Not that there are not interesting things in the report or the article, but the title is just hyperbole.
