According to a report from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Dual Credit enrollment for American Colleges and Universities in 2002-03 was roughly 1.2 million students. Less than a decade later, that number increased to 2 million students: a 75% increase. As the number of students in dual credit continues to rise, these programs have become very popular among state policy makers.
The link between a students’ college readiness while in high school and subsequent success in postsecondary education has been firmly established. While states are adopting college that is more rigorous and career readiness standards at the K-12 level to compliment this link, increasing rigor is just one necessary step toward improving postsecondary completion. Decreasing the amount of time students spend working toward a postsecondary credential can reduce their total college costs, which is clearly desirable to students, their parents, and policymakers. Equally important is finding convenient and effective ways to ease students’ transition to college coursework. This presentation will look at the history, current issues, and future directions of various Dual Credit programs. Special emphasis will be placed on models that work in various states and their relationship to work force and student success models.

Areas to be covered include:

.  Understand the reasons why Dual Credit has proliferated
.  Compare and contrast Dual Credit and Advanced Placement (A.P.)
.  Gain insight into the importance of assessment in Dual Credit programs
.  Examine Texas’s statewide commitment to Dual Credit
.  Analyze the components of effective Dual Credit Programs

Learning Benefits:

According to surveys conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics this past decade has seen the number of students participating in Dual Credit programs grow at a rate of roughly 7% per year. Some states, such as Texas, Minnesota and Florida, have witnessed even faster growth due to various collegiate plans and partnerships.  These gains, however, are not without issues that need to be addressed. The proliferation of dual credit programs is not without headaches for the educational partnerships that created them. Inadequate and outdated funding models, as well as changing certification guidelines have left some dual credit programs rich with students, but poor in support.
Participants will be able to understand the growth of dual credit, why it has proliferated, and the types of students that make up the programs. In addition, an understanding of who participates in the classes (both faculty and student) and how assessment plays a role will be analyzed. Also, identification of problem areas that can be understood and commiserated by the audience will be presented with the help of practical and workable solutions.

Target Audience – Who Should Attend?

This webinar is aimed at Dual Credit advisors at both the college and K-12 level, as well as faculty, assessment coordinators, AVID counselors, and administrators at all levels who create, influence, and implement Dual Credit initiatives aimed at college completion. Of particular interest would be NACADA, AACRAO, and The College Board. Lastly, those in the position of creating Dual Credit policy would be benefitted by knowing there are answers to the issues and problems that go with the benefits of successful Dual Credit programs.
