Costs
  • “Concurrent Enrollment” tuition is offered without charge at Ivy Tech and for Career and Technical Education courses at Vincennes.
  • At all other public institutions, “Concurrent Enrollment” is offered at a reduced tuition rate and at no cost to students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.
  • Many campuses charge full or nearly full tuition for on-campus and distance education courses, yet no financial aid is available.
  • Multiple funding streams: ADM (High school), Enrollment Change/Course Completion (College), and/or tuition (College)
professional development and teacher credentials
Professional Development and Teacher Credentials
  • Shortage of high school teachers who meet typical criteria for teaching concurrent enrollment courses (masters in the content area or 18 graduate-level hours in content area)
  • Graduate-level coursework needed for certification can be costly for teachers and not offered outside of school day/year.
  • Professional Development varies between dual credit providers.
program and curriculum development
Program and Curriculum Development
  • Lack of consistent longitudinal data collected from high schools and colleges
  • CHE policy and Double Up law require public “Concurrent Enrollment” providers to obtain accreditation from National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP).
  • Low number of Indiana higher education institutions have received NACEP accreditation
college credit transferability
College Credit Transferability
  • CHE policy: “…the dual credit course shall… …transfer to the other public postsecondary institutions in the state, in the same way as the on-campus course.”
  • In 2007-2008 school year, 37% of “Concurrent Enrollment” courses taught were on the Core Transfer Library (CTL).1
  • Parents and students need information on transferability before deciding whether or not to enroll in a dual credit course.
