On November 7, Hobsons and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) will release a new report at the AACRAO Strategic Enrollment Management conference that finds institutions are embracing dual enrollment as a strategic enrollment initiative.
Dual enrollment programs are academic programs where students complete courses in high school that have been reviewed and approved for receiving college credit. While dual enrollment programs, including advanced placement courses, have been a part of the educational landscape in the United States for decades, in recent years, dual enrollment programs have expanded to include a variety of curricular offerings. Courses can be offered at the high school campus, the college campus, a community center, or online. Dual enrollment courses can be taught by a high school instructor, a college instructor, or both. They can be taught face to face or via distance learning.
