Dual Enrollment 2015-16 Participation Report. Research Brief. Volume 1606
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Dual Enrollment (DE) is an acceleration program in which students can earn credit toward high school completion and toward a career certificate or an associate or baccalaureate degree at the same time. There are hundreds of courses available to students in the DE program. DE courses are weighted toward grade point averages in the same way as are Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced International Certificate of Education courses. Students eligible for DE can take courses conducted during school hours or after schools hours. Courses are available on high school campuses as well as accredited, non-profit local career education centers, community colleges, or state universities. This brief report focuses on the dual enrollment program conducted in Miami-Dade Public School System during the 2015-2016 school year. During that school year, there was a total of 20,361 enrollments in DE courses (down slightly from 21,852 the previous year). Because students can and often do take more than one DE course during the same semester, the total number of unique students involved in DE courses was much less than the total number of enrollments, at 7,108 students (11% less than the 8,012 student participants from the previous year).
