1 For discounted tuition rate, institutions could only select one response category. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding or suppressed data.
2 For sources paying tuition, percentages do not sum to 100 because tuition could be paid by multiple sources.
3 "Postsecondary institution" includes discounted tuition rates, the institution's contributions, and/or tuition waivers.
4 Examples of other tuition sources reported include private scholarships and grants.
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.
