This study examines the impact of participation in a dual enrollment program on students in 2 state programs (New York and Florida). A special focus is placed on students enrolled in Career and Technical Education Programs. Data analysis involved the use of two large-scale administrative datasets. The longitudinal nature of the study allowed for the control of some preexisting student characteristics. Subgroup analyses were also performed by gender, achievement and socioeconomic status. Results provide some support for the use of dual enrollment as a strategy for the successful transition to postsecondary education for a range of students.
