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.
