Enhancing the Impact of the Build Back Better Act Integrating College in High School Programs

Sep 13, 2021


College in high school programs, such as dual enrollment, concurrent enrollment, and early college high school, are proven mechanisms for increasing postsecondary program enrollment and completion and an essential strategy for addressing the serious impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on postsecondary enrollment and success.

To maximize the impact of the free community college proposal within the Build Back Better Act, and not undermine dual enrollment, we ask that financial support for early college credit to be incorporated into the final tuition and fee free college package. If community college is made free without also making early college credits free, there may be an unintentional disincentive for students to participate in dual enrollment programs. The choices for students and families in many states would be (1) pay for college credit while in high school, or (2) wait to take the college courses for free in community college
