Many students are from Connecticut, but each year an increasing number come from other states and many other countries. The graduate student body of about 1,900 ranges from recent college graduates to professionals with several years of experience in their fields. About 60 percent of the graduate students are women, about 12 percent receive some sort of financial aid, approximately 14 percent are international students, and about 12 percent are members of minority groups.
