NACADA-NACEP Collaborative Webinar: The Impact of Advising on Dual and Concurrent Enrollment Students
September 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The number of high school students enrolling in dual and concurrent enrollment courses continues to grow rapidly throughout the country – the National Student Clearinghouse reports that 1 in 4 Associate's and Bachelor’s Degree Earners in 2014-15 had completed at least one college course prior to matriculating to college. As institutions face the growing numbers of students participating in these programs, it is essential that dual and concurrent enrollment programs effectively advise students to improve their chances of success. NACEP's newly revised National Concurrent Enrollment Partnership Standards promote the practice of advising concurrent enrollment students about the benefits and implications of taking college courses.
NACEP is honored to host this webinar with NACADA - the Global Community for Academic Advising - to provide information on concurrent enrollment programs across the United States and to showcase specific examples of three programs that have been successful in building effective advising systems for high school students taking college courses. NACADA promotes and supports quality academic advising in institutions of higher education to enhance the educational development of students.
A panel of representatives from two-year and four-year colleges who have worked with dual and concurrent enrollment students will discuss their programs and provide participants with information that academic advisors need to know in order to better serve dual and concurrent enrollment students on their campuses, as well as matriculated students who arrive on campus having completed dual and concurrent enrollment courses while in high school.
