Dual Enrollment: Helping Make College a Reality for Students Less Likely to Go -- Recommendations for Policymakers from the Concurrent Courses Initiative - A three-year study tracking outcomes for approximately 3,000 students across California shows that career-focused dual enrollment programs can provide important benefits for those who are underachieving and underrepresented in higher education. These benefits include students being: (1) More likely to graduate from high school (2) More likely to transition to a four-year college rather than a two-year college (3) Less likely to take basic skills courses in college (4) More likely to persist in postsecondary education (5) More likely to accumulate more college credits.
