Open Doors 2018 (based on 2016-17 participation)

The 2018 Institute of International Education Open Doors Report published in November 2018 ranked St. Olaf #1 among baccalaureate institutions (for the 10th year in a row) for total number of study abroad students with 624 participants.  Note that the Open Doors Report excludes international student participants and participants in domestic off-campus study programs, so total participation as measured by IIE is lower.
