According to a recent survey, more than 8,000 Chinese international students were expelled from U.S. institutions last year for cheating and poor grades.

This is an estimate provided by WholeRen Education, a U.S.-based company that helps Chinese students come to the U.S. for educational purposes. They also help with adjustment issues as well. The company based their estimate on a survey of 1,657 students who were expelled from American Universities last year. According to the results, more than 80% of those students were expelled for academic dishonesty or poor grades.

More than half of these students were expelled from top 100 schools and most came from wealthy families.

China is the #1 country of origin for international students in the United States. Last year alone, nearly 460,000 international students arrived from China. Only 4.6% of them were financed by the Chinese government. Most of them were self-financed or had scholarships from a U.S. university.
