New Data Reveal Percent of College Credits Taken by High School Students. Fact Book Bulletin
Marks, Joseph L.
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
All SREB states have legislation allowing students in public high schools to earn college credits in what are often called "dual enrollment" or "early college" programs. Proponents of such programs say that they may help students prepare for college and reduce time to degree. However, critics of such programs question whether all students who enroll are prepared for them. Highlighting data compiled for the first time by the SREB-State Data Exchange, this bulletin presents the percentages of undergraduate credit or contact hours taken by high school students at public colleges, universities and technical institutes in the SREB region--and where program growth is occurring.
