Introduction

The College and Career Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013 (“CCRCCA”) established a statutory requirement that the Center provide an annual report to the Governor and General Assembly about the number of students who are dually enrolled in high schools and in colleges or universities, as well as information about the courses taken by dually enrolled students. The statute defines a “dually enrolled student” as one who is simultaneously enrolled in a secondary school and also in an institution of higher education in Maryland. College classes taken in this way are used to fulfill requirements for high school graduation and can also qualify for college credit if the student enrolls in college. Dual enrollment allows students to undertake challenging learning experiences, explore subjects of interest through classes generally not available at high schools, demonstrate readiness for college study, and complete coursework that can be accepted as transfer credit towards earning a postsecondary degree.
