Each year, nearly 100,000 students participate in dual enrollment (DE), which consists of taking postsecondary courses while still in high school and can allow students to earn credit that counts both towards high school graduation requirements and a later postsecondary career.

Since they are exposed to college-level courses, research also shows that students who take part in DE have higher graduation rates, college attendance, and degree attainment.

FCAN’s new brief — Dual Enrollment: Launching Florida Students on a Postsecondary Pathway — outlines the basics of dual enrollment in Florida, highlights some best practices across the state, and pinpoints opportunities for growth.
