Dual enrollment programs enable students to take college courses and earn college credit while in high school. Once limited to high-achieving students, these programs are now seen as a means to support the postsecondary preparation of average-achieving students. Moreover, though dual enrollment programs typically have been reserved for academically-focused students, increasing numbers of career and technical education (CTE) programs are making them available to their students. This brief summarizes a study that investigated the effectiveness of dual enrollment programs in promoting high school graduation and postsecondary achievement. Researchers examined the influence of dual enrollment program participation on students in the State of Florida and in New York City, compared to students who did not participate, with a specific focus in both locations on CTE students. Findings suggest that dual enrollment is an effective strategy for encouraging postsecondary success for all students, including those in CTE programs. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
