Concurrent Enrollment One-Pager

Project Abstract

Nearly 75% of jobs in Colorado require some education beyond high school but only 66% of the state’s adult population has such qualifications. This study investigated the potential of the state’s Concurrent Enrollment program to increase the number of adults with postsecondary experience. Funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), the Colorado Lab provided technical assistance for the quantitative portion of this project. As displayed in the one-pager above, Concurrent Enrollment dramatically increases postsecondary access and persistence in Colorado. More details about these findings can be found in the publications posted under Phase II of this work.
