The Impact of Dual Enrollment High School Students In Biblical Higher Education
Dual enrollment/Post Secondary Enrollment Options programs continue to grow to allow students to earn college credits while still in high school. Much research has been done to endorse the programs’ benefits for the students and families (Howley et al., 2013) but little research has explored the impact on the providing university, specifically in the area of traditional student persistence and retention in biblical higher education. Fine and Clark (2013) highlighted student satisfaction as a link to matriculation. This study examined traditional Bible college student satisfaction and persistence with having dual enrollment students in their English composition class.
