! 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 "It varied" could mean that the curriculum varied within a single program, or that the curriculum varied across multiple programs within an institution. The term "it varied" was not defined for respondents.
NOTE: 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. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding or suppressed data.
