Title: PEQIS 18: Public-Use Data Files and Documentation: Dual Enrollment Programs and Courses for High School Students, 2010-11 (NCES 2013-006)
Description: This file contains data from a quick-response survey titled "Dual Enrollment Programs and Courses for High School Students, 2010-11". The survey was designed to provide descriptive national data on the prevalence and characteristics of dual enrollment programs at postsecondary institutions in the United States. For this survey, dual enrollment refers to high school students earning college credits for courses taken through a postsecondary institution. NCES released the results of the survey in the publication, “Dual Enrollment Programs and Courses for High School Students at Postsecondary Institutions: 2010-11” (NCES 2013–002).

Questionnaires were mailed to the PEQIS institutions in September 2011. Institutions were told that the survey was designed to be completed by the person(s) most knowledgeable about dual enrollment at the institution. Respondents had the option of completing the survey online. Telephone follow-up of nonrespondents was initiated in October 2011; data collection and clarification were completed in February 2012. The response rates were 93 percent unweighted and 94 percent weighted.

This survey collected information on the enrollment of high school students in college-level courses within and outside of dual enrollment programs. Institutions reported on the types of eligibility requirements for high school students to participate in dual enrollment programs. Other survey topics included whether courses were taught through distance education or at various locations, and whether the courses were taught by college or high school instructors. The survey also included questions about which sources paid tuition and the types of expenses generally paid out of pocket by students and their parents. Data on whether institutions had a dual enrollment program geared specifically toward high school students at risk of educational failure were also collected.
