The dual–credit curricular initiative offers high school students the opportunity to earn college and high school credits simultaneously without taking a standardized test to acquire the credit. The courses are purported to introduce students to a more rigorous curriculum in high school and save them time and money in their pursuit of college degrees. Dual credit programs have grown rapidly, and this monograph provides a synthesis of:
the scholarly literature on dual credit offered at high school and a variety of postsecondary settings;
underrepresented students experiences with the course(s), and
suggestions for future research and drivers that will influence its development.
Originally, these initiatives focused on high–achieving students, but additional models have emerged that expand the benefits to lower– and middle–achieving students as well.

This is the third issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey–Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.
