CTE Dual Enrollment in North Carolina Improves High School and College Outcomes
In North Carolina, eligible high school students can earn credentials and college credits tuition-free from state colleges and universities through Career & College Promise, a statewide dual enrollment program. Three pathways are available, including a career and technical education (CTE) pathway.
The network research team at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro conducted a study of students in Grade 11 or 12 who participated in Career & College Promise over seven years. The study found positive effects for students in the CTE dual enrollment pathway, particularly for groups historically underrepresented in postsecondary education. On average, CTE dual enrollment students did better on key indicators of the transition from high school to college than similar students who did not take dual enrollment courses.
