How Does Access to Dual Enrollment and Advanced Placement Vary by Race and Gender Across States?

Equity /

CCRC released a report with state-by-state findings on outcomes for dual enrollment students after they graduate from high school. But what do we know about high school students’ access to dual enrollment opportunities in the first place—and how does it compare with their access to other college “acceleration” opportunities, such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses?

The interactive tool below displays state-level findings on access to dual enrollment and AP courses, drawing on recently released data from the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC). By clicking on each state, you examine the gaps in access to these opportunities within that state. For data definitions and methodology, see the "Data Notes" section below.
