Joint Enrollment Outcomes

The Iowa Department of Education collects information on joint enrollment from Iowa's 15 community colleges. Jointly enrolled students are high school students enrolled in community college credit coursework. The report here is based on the 2011 Iowa high school graduating class; high school students were followed to postsecondary education enrollments and completions for eight years following high school graduation. The student cohort was split into two groups: those who experienced joint (dual) enrollment (JE) and those who did not enroll in joint (dual) enrollment options (NJE). The data provide insight into the education outcomes by those two categories of students and demonstrate the impact of joint enrollment on students' post-high school pathways, which are reflected in the rates of postsecondary enrollments, persistence in postsecondary education, rates and time to graduation from postsecondary institutions, potential cost savings for students and their families and earned credit. All data provided for jointly enrolled students are in comparison to students who did not participate in joint enrollment.

Corrections Outcomes

This information included in this report is a statewide attempt to analyze data, establish a baseline and report the post-release outcomes of incarcerated students.
