‡ Reporting standards not met. The coefficient of variation for this estimate is 50 percent or greater or the sample size is less than 3.
1 "Minimum qualifications varied" could mean that the minimum qualifications varied within a single program or that the minimum qualifications varied across multiple programs within an institution.
NOTE: Percentages are based on the institutions with at least some college-level courses within a dual enrollment program taught at a high school campus by high school instructors. Of the 46 percent of institutions with dual enrollment programs during the 12-month 2010–11 academic year, 64 percent reported at least some of the college-level courses were taught at a high school campus and 79 percent of those institutions reported high school instructors taught at least some of the courses. Data for private nonprofit 2-year and private for-profit 2-year institutions are included in the totals and in analyses by size of institution but are not shown separately. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding or suppressed data.
