Dual Enrollment and College Success: Lessons from a Muslim School

Hassan Elannani

Abstract


Dual enrollment programs are expanding and more students from private schools have been benefitting from them academically and financially but only few Muslim schools have participated in these programs. Twelve students from a Muslim school were enrolled in a dual enrollment program at a local community college while completing their high school graduation requirements. The students’ academic achievement during the dual enrollment period was examined and a follow-up of their college outcomes was conducted. These students graduated from high school one year earlier with distinction and earned two semesters of college credits. Ten students out of twelve graduated from universities three to four years after completing the dual enrollment program. These students benefitted from the community college experience during the dual enrollment program and acquired the necessary skills that helped them graduate from universities in the USA, Canada, and United Arab Emirates.
