Dual Enrollment at the Community College and High School: Where Do Students Hear about It?
Brophy, Michael; Johnson, Todd
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v15 n1 p47-55 Fall 2007
Dual enrollment programs allow high school students to enroll in community college courses for credit while they are still enrolled in high school. The present study explored how 350 11th and 12th grade high school students learned about the dual enrollment program. The study also explored which of these sources of information were most predictive of those students participating in the dual enrollment program. Students in the study reported learning about the dual enrollment program from peers, counselor, parent, teacher, brochure/pamphlet, other source, newspaper, and principal. Logistic regression for the sample identified that learning about the program from the counselor, teacher, and other students were statistically significant. However, learning about the program from high school-based sources actually decreased the likelihood that they would participate. Discussion and implications of these findings are shared with regard to community colleges. (Contains 3 tables.)
