An Analysis of the Costs and Savings of the Concurrent Enrollment Program at Salt Lake Community College.
Kruger, Larry A.
The Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) (Utah) implemented a concurrent enrollment program in the 1989-90 academic year that provides high school students with an opportunity to enroll in college-level courses and receive college and high school credit. This study evaluated enrollment data for students who had completed concurrent enrollment courses and graduated from SLCC to determine which courses counted and which did not count toward graduation. Those data were then used to calculate the extent of cost savings to students who successfully completed concurrent enrollment courses through SLCC and savings, if any, to the State of Utah. Three general conclusions resulted from this study: First, students who participated in SLCC's concurrent enrollment program saved money. Second, students also experienced time savings through participation in the college's concurrent enrollment program. However, even with the benefits of concurrent enrollment, participating students need to enroll in more concurrent enrollment courses so that cost and time savings may be increased. Third, the State of Utah's concurrent enrollment program as implemented at SLCC provided potential cost savings to the State of Utah. (Contains 17 tables, 8 figures, 128 references, and 7 appendices.
