Abstract


Dual credit, also known as "dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, post secondary enrollment and joint enrollment" can be defined as a course or program where high school students can earn both high school and postsecondary credits for the same course.Andrews (2004)points out that such opportunities range from earning a single course of college credit to earning up to two years of college work prior to high school graduation.
