Dual Enrollment: Postsecondary/Secondary Partnerships to Prepare Students

Posted by Youth Services - On July 20, 2010 (EST)

Community College Research Center posted an informational brief: Dual Enrollment: Postsecondary/Secondary Partnerships to Prepare Students. The last decade has seen an explosion of interest in dual enrollment. In dual enrollment, high school students are permitted to take college courses and, if they pass them, earn college credit. Sometimes, as in the case of dual credit, students earn both high school and college credit for the same course. However, more research on how participation in dual enrollment may contribute to students' smoother secondary-to-postsecondary transitions is certainly needed. In the meantime, dual enrollment serves to encourage engagement among college faculty, collaborating high school teachers and staff, and motivated secondary students who are interested in higher education. Given our national problem with college persistence and completion, the fostering of such relationships can only be regarded as a positive step.
