‡ Reporting standards not met. The coefficient of variation for this estimate is 50 percent or greater or the sample size is less than 3.
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. Percentages do not sum to 100 because respondents reported about each type of expense separately. The term "out of pocket" was not defined for respondents.
