  • This report will review the history of current dual enrollment programs under which students may simultaneously earn both high school and college credit, the Early College Credit program, and the Start College Now program. Further, the report will describe these programs and gather recommendations regarding the adequacy of opportunities for student participation, course costs, and the division of expense between students, secondary, and post-secondary institutions. The report will also gather recommendations regarding the appropriateness of maintaining separate programs for technical colleges and other institutions of higher education and may include options for: resolving any ambiguities that exist under the current programs; creating more uniformity between the current programs; or consolidating the current programs.
