Student Benefits of Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment is particularly effective in helping students who have experienced poverty to access post-secondary education and economic opportunity. According to research, dual enrollment students:

  • Experience higher rates of enrollment in two and four-year colleges.  The benefits are even greater for students whose parents never attended college.
  • Demonstrate more positive attitudes towards earning post-secondary degrees.
  • Are more likely to persist through the second year of college than non-participating students.
  • Tend to earn higher college GPAs and more postsecondary credits than their peers.


Community Benefits of Dual Enrollment

  • Local colleges retain students after they graduate from high school.
  • After graduation from college, students stay in the area.
  • Stronger, more qualified workforce within the community.
  • Technical degrees offer graduates who are in high demand for high wage, skilled  professions.
