Dual enrollment opportunities are key to increasing college access, completion, and transfer rates for students who are historically underrepresented in college. And, for students whose learning was affected by COVID-19, dual enrollment partnerships may be especially key to college success.
Math is central to many programs of study and can serve as a barrier to college access and readiness, making it a crucial area of academic preparation for dual enrollment partnerships to address. That’s why Just Equations and Career Ladders Project partnered to create The Multiplier Effect: Dual Enrollment x Math, a new brief to support partnerships in considering the role of math courses in dual enrollment opportunities which enhance student success.
This brief on dual enrollment highlights prominent issues in mathematics for partnerships to consider when designing new programs, with a special focus on partnerships in California. We hope this brief helps students meet early gateway requirements and explore future majors and careers through dual enrollment.
