Since 2017, 11,299 students received credit for college classes while in high school, either through Credit by Exam or Dual Enrollment classes. In earlier iterations of this project, extensive efforts resulted in better data collection tools as well as expanded outreach to high school students. The number of students served increased to 50,885 students in 2020, with 50,304 students earning college credit. Recognizing the need to provide student success strategies, each college has encouraged partnering with the Guided Pathways Initiative. In September 2021, feeling the full impact of the pandemic, the number dropped to 30,727 students who were enrolled in college classes and 28,399 earned college credit. The workplan for this project commits to an increase of 10 percent of students served as well as continued focus on student success strategies.
