Improving College Access and Success through Dual Enrollment

Virtual Event

September 7, 2023 · 11:00 am - 11:40 am

The event will be livestreamed on this page.

About the Program

At one time, mainly high-achieving high school students took college courses through dual enrollment, but access has widened under the College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) program. PPIC researchers Daniel Payares-Montoya and Iwunze Ugo will present findings from a report that outlines how CCAP students are benefiting from the dual enrollment program as well as areas where CCAP can be improved.

This research and event are supported with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, College Futures Foundation, and the Sutton Family Fund.
