In this research study, the demographic characteristics (i.e., gender, ethnicity/race) of students who completed a dual credit course while in high school and then enrolled in a community college in Texas were determined for the 2012-2013 through the 2014-2015 academic years. In all three academic years, almost two thirds of the community college students who had completed a dual credit course in high school were females. With respect to ethnicity/race, White students constituted the highest percentage, with Black students having the lowest percentage of students who completed a dual credit course while in high school. Implications and recommendations for future research were discussed.
