State Approaches to Funding Dual Enrollment. ECS Education Policy Analysis
Zinth, Jennifer
Education Commission of the States
Research shows that students who dually enroll are more likely to finish high school and succeed in postsecondary education than their peers with a similar grade point average (GPA), test scores, demographics, etc. Yet in many states, students and parents are largely--if not entirely--responsible for covering dual enrollment course costs, placing these courses out of reach of students in greatest need. This Education Commission of the States policy analysis explores approaches states are taking to minimize--or completely eliminate--tuition and other costs for dually enrolled students. For each state highlighted, this report describes the state's mechanism for funding dual enrollment, the potential benefits and drawbacks of each approach, student access and program outcomes, and considerations on the politics or culture underlying these funding approaches.
