Registered author(s):


    This study tracked all of Florida's 2000–2001 and 2001–2002 high school seniors and found that students who participated in dual enrollment classes on college campuses were 12 percent more likely to go to college and 7 percent more likely to earn a bachelor's degree than similar students who did not participate. Students who took these classes exclusively on the high school campus showed no statistically significant gains. The study found that dual enrollment and Advanced Placement participation also had similarly positive impacts.
