! Interpret data with caution; the coefficient of variation is greater than or equal to 30 percent.
‡ 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 Examples of other eligibility requirements reported include parental approval, grade level requirements and course prerequisites.
NOTE: Response options in the questionnaire were "yes," "no," and "don't know." The "don't know" responses are not shown in the table but can be inferred by subtracting the sum of the "yes" and "no" responses from 100 percent. Percentages are based on the 46 percent of institutions with dual enrollment programs during the 12-month 2010–11 academic year. 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.
