Dual Enrollment Database - This database provides 50-state information on 17 policy components related to dual enrollment. (Jennifer Dounay Zinth, Education Commission of the States, December 2013)...

The Promise of Dual Enrollment: Assessing Ohioís Early College Access Policy - In a time when education serves as the currency of an information-based economy, dual enrollment offers a 21st-century approach to removing traditional education boundaries and increasing the number of Americans ready to compete in a global economy. This report examines the progress of Ohioís Post Secondary Enrollment Options policy towards offering early college access to the state's high school students by analyzing data on participation, access, success and cost. It also examines the policy in contrast to dual enrollment policies in other states. (KnowledgeWorks Foundation and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, August 2007)...

State Dual Enrollment Policies: Addressing Access and Quality - This information-packed report includes a 50-state matrix of dual enrollment policies, with information on: (1) levels of state oversight; (2) target population; admissions requirements related to both (3) student grade level and (4) academics; (5) program location (at college campus, high school or both); (6) student mix (whether students take courses with college students, with only high school students, or both); (7) instructor qualifications; (8) approval requirements or limits on course content; (9) who pays tuition; and (10) who funds. The authors find that state policies vary widely in the degree to which dual enrollment programs are regulated. No state had policies addressing all 10 of the areas identified, while 12 states had no state-level policies addressing dual enrollment. (Melinda Mechur Karp, Thomas R. Bailey, Katherine L. Hughes and Baranda J. Fermin, U.S. Department of Education, September 2004)...
