COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Universities in Ohio bolstered their number of international students in recent years.
The University of Toledo, Miami University and the University of Akron led the way in adding international students to their enrollments since 2007.
An Institute of International Education report says Ohio ranks eighth in the nation in the number of foreign students attending public universities - with 28,401 students across 13 of its public universities.
Foreign students, who pay out-of-state tuition, paid the schools more than $772 million last year.
Ohio State University nearly tripled its international undergraduate enrollment in the past five years. It now counts 6,350 foreign students, compared with 3,812 in 2007.
