This report provides data from a nationally representative survey of Title IV degree-granting postsecondary institutions on the topic of dual enrollment of high school students. Dual enrollment, also known as "dual credit," "concurrent enrollment," and "joint enrollment," refers to the participation in college-level courses and the earning of college credits by high school students. Dual enrollment is viewed as providing high school students benefits such as greater access to a wider range of rigorous academic and technical courses, savings in time and money on a college degree, promoting efficiency of learning, and enhancing admission to and retention in college. The survey was designed to provide policymakers, researchers, educators, and administrators with baseline information on the prevalence and characteristics of dual enrollment programs. While the majority of the survey's questions focused on dual enrollment programs, several key questions also revealed the prevalence of college course taking outside of dual enrollment programs by high school students. Appendices include the survey instrument and technical notes. (Contains 37 tables.)
