Document Number: 6064Dual Enrollment of High School Students at Postsecondary Institutions: 2002-03 - This report, a companion piece to Dual Credit and Exam-Based Courses in U.S. Public High Schools: 2002-03, provides data from a nationally representative survey of postsecondary institutions on the topic of dual enrollment of high school students. The findings address the (1) Prevalence of and enrollment in dual enrollment programs and college-level courses outside of dual enrollment programs; (2) Characteristics of dual enrollment programs and courses, such as location, instructors, curriculum, eligibility requirements, credit earned and funding; and (3) Dual enrollment programs specifically geared toward students at risk of academic failure. Findings are disaggregated by institution size and type (public 2-year, public or private 4-year). One finding: 5% of institutions with dual enrollment programs – or 2% of all institutions – had dual enrollment programs geared toward high school students at risk of academic failure.
