Study: Benefits of Dual Enrollment Are Clear for California Students

A new study from the Community College Research Center (CCRC) at Columbia University found that career-focused dual enrollment programs benefit underachieving and underrepresented students.

Broadening the Benefits of Dual Enrollment examines outcomes for over 3,000 California students participating in eight dual enrollment programs over a three year period. The study found that students participating in the program, called the Concurrent Courses Initiative, were more likely to graduate from high school, enroll and persist in four-year colleges, and accumulate more college credits. Participating students are also less likely to require remedial postsecondary courses.
