Dual enrollment courses are transcripted by the sponsoring college our university, and typically transfer in the same fashion as any other credit from that college would.

A national survey in 2005 by the Western Interstate Commission of Higher Education (WICHE) found that >90% of public institutions accepted AP exams and dual/concurrent enrollment credit for required or elective credit. Among private institutions the percentage accepting dual/concurrent enrollment credit was lower (78%) but anecdotally I believe this has increased as dual and concurrent enrollment have become more widespread. Our members conduct alumni surveys and regularly find >90% credit acceptance.

The WICHE report is available at
