Most higher education institutions view dual-enrollment programs as an important tool for recruiting students and managing their overall enrollment strategies, finds a new survey from the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.

Seventy-eight percent of responding institutions said they use the programs, which allow high school students to earn college credit, as a way to recruit students. But 22 percent of the colleges that offer dual-enrollment programs reported that they've had difficulty getting those credits to transfer to other colleges or universities.

That may mean the programs may not give students as much of a boost in college if students want to attend a different program after high school.
