Dual-Credit in Kentucky
Stephenson, Lisa G.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v37 n11 p844-850 2013
Credit-based transition programs provide high school students with opportunities to jump start their college education. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) offers college credit through dual-credit programs. While KCTCS dual-credit offerings have been successful in helping high school students start their college education before high school graduation, these offerings need to move from enrollment mechanisms to recruitment tools. This manuscript provides areas where more can be done to improve dual-credit offerings and make the change from enrollment tool to recruitment and completion tools.
