Early to College, Likely to Rise? Benefits and Challenges of Early College Programs
Regan, Daniel
New England Journal of Higher Education, Sep 2017
Students who appear young on college campuses may be in an "Early College" program. Several factors have increased the popularity of these programs, though a proactive push from higher education to expand them has not been a primary one. The impetus for the growth of such programs has come from legislators as well as from high school students and their families, for reasons that will surprise no one: concern about the cost of a college education; national publicity about student debt at graduation; and questions about the quality of U.S. secondary education and thus college readiness. This article discusses benefits and challenges of early college programs.
