This study examines whether Advance Placement (AP) and Dual Enrollment (DE) programs improve college access and success. Student records were obtained for two cohorts of all high school students in Florida. The study found that both AP and DE are associated with positive outcomes; however, DE students are more likely than AP students to attend college, but less likely to first enroll in a four-year college.
