The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) produced a study reviewing the K-12 funding formulas of all 50 states. In a section of the report, NCES examined whether states had designated funding for dual enrollment programs. They found that: "Sixty-four percent of institutions with dual enrollment programs reported that parents and students were a source for tuition for courses taken as part of the programs, 37 percent said that high schools and public school districts were a source, and 26 percent said that their state was a source for tuition. Nine percent indicated that there was some other source(s) for tuition. The most commonly cited other sources included various federal and county grants, as well as scholarships from local businesses and nonprofit organizations" (Waits, Setzer, Lewis, & Lewis, 2005). This paper provides the following highlights: (1) Students and parents are responsible for paying the cost of tuition for dual programs in 22 states; (2) In six states, the tuition is provided by the student's school district; (3) In three states, tuition is provided by participating postsecondary institutions; (4) In three states, tuition is provided by the state department of education or another state organization; and (5) Four states have multiple dual enrollment programs that have different groups that are primarily responsible for tuition. This paper responds to a question asking how other states fund their enrollment programs.
