What is Dual Enrollment?
The following is an excerpt from the Career Ladders Project website:
Students who participate in high-quality dual enrollment programs are more likely to graduate high school, enter college, and persist in college to completion, according to national research. Students who are most likely to benefit are those who are most underrepresented in higher education in California: young men of color, students from low-income families, and first-generation college students. Dual enrollment is a powerful tool for equity.

With support from the College Futures Foundation, and in collaboration with JFF, Career Ladders Project researched the landscape for dual enrollment in California. We produced recommendations for how to help more colleges, K-12 districts, and students across California reap the clear benefits of dual enrollment. CLP interviewed practitioners, researchers, and students at 48 of California’s 114 community colleges – and conducted in-depth research at six. Here are the results:
- The Dual Enrollment Landscape in California: A CLP Working Paper
- Dual Enrollment overview (1 page) and three brief case studies (Reedley College, Norco College, and East LA College)
- Dual Enrollment case study (Bakersfield College)
- Dual Enrollment in California: A JFF Working Paper
- Unlocking Potential – joint brief by CLP and JFF
