‡ 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 Percentages are based on all Title IV degree-granting institutions in the United States.
2 Percentages are based on the 46 percent of institutions with dual enrollment programs during the 12-month 2010–11 academic year.
3 Percentages are based on the 4 percent of institutions with dual enrollment programs geared specifically toward high school students at risk of educational failure during the 12-month 2010–11 academic year. Institutions could only select one response category.
4 "Typical number of courses per academic term varied considerably" could mean that the pattern varied within a single program or that the pattern varied across multiple programs within an institution.
NOTE: 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.
