Virginia's 2005 dual enrollment policy change included two provisions: 1) high schools had to inform all students of dual enrollment opportunities and 2) selected freshmen and sophomores were eligible to participate. The goal was to increase overall access to and participation in dual enrollment courses. However, the increase was not uniform and minority groups remained significantly underrepresented when compared with their representation in the general student population.
